Being Positive About The Astros (Thank You, John Royal)

Yeah, John Royal has been on fire this week writing about the Astros. This latest article breaks down 25 positive statements about the Astros. There's a healthy dose of cynicism sprinkled in to back-handed compliments, but it's a solid idea. Since I didn't see it on Twitter to provide my own, here's five more...

↵

1) I'm positive this is the worst Astros team I've seen in my lifetime.

↵

2) I'm positive there is much, much more interest in the minor leagues than there is for the major league team right now.

↵

3) I'm positive that I will miss Carlos Lee when he's gone, if only for the jokes. Who else will provide that kind of target?

↵

4) I'm positive that Hunter Pence is the best player on this team. And that he's at best the fourth-best player on a playoff team.

↵

5) I'm positive Jim Crane will not fix all the problems with this team. It'll take time, money and positive management for that.
