Astros Update – Week of September 5th

With the Astros looking to prove something down the home stretch, fans around the country are starting to pay attention to some of their young stars who have continued to make strides in Houston. Though we know Jose Altuve is the real deal in the batter's box and on the base paths, Chris Carter had such a magnificent month of August that suddenly the entire Astros' lineup looks to be getting a major boost. The 27-year-old designated hitter showed some signs early on in the season, but he took his game to a completely different level, leading the Astros across the board in run production.

For Carter, August got off to a great start when he tallied three hits, a homer and two RBIs on August 2nd against the Blue Jays, the game that really got him locked him on his way to a jaw-dropping overall month of August. All in all, Carter would tally eight different games with at least two RBIs on the month, helping him finish with a ridiculous 29 RBIs for the month to bring him in line to potentially challenge for 100 on the season. Carter also bashed 12 homers in the month and is now one of the top home run hitters in the entire league with 33 at the turn of the month and counting.

It hasn't just been Carter, however, as Altuve has kept the offense sizzling. Altuve remains the league's top overall hitter and has the inside track on a batting crown, not to mention being on pace to steal roughly 60 bases on the season – likely enough to lead the American League. What's also very impressive is how seldom Altuve strikes out, which is the sign of a very good top-of-the-order hitter. Astros' fans are also optimistic about the development of Dallas Keuchel, who has made improvements across the board from last season and continues to carve up some of the top teams in the league. In August, Keuchel went at least six innings in all six of his starts, continuing to show his ability to pitch deep into the game. With the Astros looking to pull together and finish the season on a high note, watching their young talent blossom is something to behold for Astros' fans.

Astros Update – Week of August 8th

Since the All-Star break, the Astros have had some great moments already, particularly when playing some of the very best teams in the league. During a recent home stand against the A's and the Blue Jays, two of the top teams in the American League, the Astros pulled together and won both series, including three out of four against the Jays. In their five wins in the two series, the Astros really pulled it together on their pitching staff, shutting down two of the most explosive lineups in the league in the process. With the Astros looking to keep up the momentum, they're hoping to continue to flash their potential and show that they're definitely not going to go quietly in the A.L. West.

One of the top parts of their attack game in and game out continues to be Jose Altuve, the smooth-hitting second baseman who is proving to be one of the best young players at his position in the game. Altuve has been leading the American League in hitting for most of the season and has shown that he has the talent to win batting titles, not to mention the speed to snag a few extra hits and make himself even more dangerous than he already is. Altuve also is far and away the best base-stealer in the American League, trailing only Dee Gordon in the entire league.

With Altuve proving to be one of the most electrifying players in the league and pitchers like Dallas Keuchel, Brett Oberholtzer and others putting together some very nice starts in recent weeks, the Astros continue to point out that this is a roster with a lot of talent lurking. Though it won't be easy in the same division as the Angels and the A's, this is a team that will be looking to put up plenty of wins coming down the home stretch as they look to rise in the A.L. West standings.

Astros Update – Week of July 4

For the Astros, it's all about taking their talented young team to the next level, which is exactly what has fans optimistic about their future as they continue to turn some heads around the league. Though it hasn't all come together just yet for the Astros, they've also had some very good stretches as well, particularly in the month of June. In June, the Astros took home series wins against teams like the Angels as well as the A.L. Central-leading Tigers, showing that they're definitely not intimidated at all. They also took three out of four against the Diamondbacks, helping them to get their season headed in the right direction as they look to make their move in the A.L. West.

One of the brightest spots of the season, of course, has been the performance of second baseman Jose Altuve, who has been nothing short of electrifying all season long. With an average close to.350 at the midway point of the season, Altuve has been near or at the top of the entire league in batting average for much of the year so far, showing that he's the type of hitter who can definitely win a batting title if it all comes together. Right-fielder George Springer has also provided a major spark, and pitchers around the league that it can be very hard to keep this talented power hitter in the ballpark.

More than just doing some damage in the batter's box, however, the Astros have shown that they have some big-time talent both in the rotation and in the bullpen. Winning eight of his first 13 decisions with an ERA well below 2.00, Dallas Keuchel has looked very sharp throughout the season and has been giving the Astros a chance to win every time that he's taken the hill. Also having a great first half has been Jarred Cosart, helping to give the Astros a deep rotation filled with young stars on the rise. With a nice collection of talent and a ball club that is starting to find its stride, the second half of the season should be an exciting one for the Astros and their fans.

Astros Update – Week of June 6

When the Astros were looking for a bright spot, it turned out they didn't have to look too long, as George Springer announced that he's one of the best young right-handed hitters in the entire league. After a slow start to the season, the 24-year-old turned it on in a big way in May, belting 10 homers and driving in 25 RBIs to be among the most productive hitters in the American League over that stretch. Springer also enjoyed an unbelievable stretch towards the end of May, as smacked seven homers in a seven-game stretch to match one of the best homer streaks in recent seasons.

With that type of turnaround to his season, suddenly Springer is in the Rookie of the Year conversation, and the young phenom is giving Astros fans plenty of reasons for optimism as they look to show some signs in the A.L. West. It hasn't all been about Springer, however, as guys like Jose Altuve and Dexter Fowler have also provided some big moments as well. Altuve, who leads the team in batting average, has been particularly impressive, as he's amongst the best base-stealers in the game so far this season as he continues to give the top of the lineup a major spark.

And the Astros really showed their potential during a recent seven-game winning streak, which saw the Astros take home five straight games on the road (against the Mariners and Royals) and took two more at home against the Orioles. That's what can happen when a guy like Springer really gets going, and the Astros have been proving that they have a nice collection of young talent that is capable of rattling off a bunch of wins in a row once they get rolling. With big upcoming series against the Twins, Diamondbacks, Rays and Nationals, the Astros have plenty of opportunities to turn it around in the coming weeks.

Astros Update – Week of May 2nd

One of the best things about Major League Baseball is the long season is that you have a chance to redeem yourself, allowing talent to rise to the top. And that's exactly what the Astros are looking to do after struggling a bit to start the 2014 campaign. Though it hasn't been easy, the Astros have had some bright spots, including taking two out of three against the Yankees in New York to start the regular season and also winning a series in Seattle and splitting a four-game set with the A's, the team that has built a solid lead in the A.L. West.

One of the best parts of the 2014 season, of course, has been starting pitcher Dallas Kuechel. Kuechel has put together a 2-1 record with a team-best 3.56 ERA while also leading the team with 30 strikeouts. In four starts, Scott Feldman also is tied for the team lead with four wins and put together quality starts in three out of those outings, complete with a microscopic ERA of 1.69. Matt Albers has also come out of the bullpen firing rocks, tallying a 0.90 ERA in his first eight appearances of the season.

On offense, the Astros have some up-and-coming talent that has shown some real signs of life. Leading the way has been Jose Altuve, who leads the team with hits (32) and batting average (.276) through the first month of the regular season. Pitchers have also had some trouble keeping Matt Dominguez in the ballpark, as the smooth-swinging third baseman leads the team with four homers. After a tough first month of the season, the Astros will be looking to build on some big home wins against the A's near the end of April as they start May with a series at home against the Mariners and then on the road against the N.L. Central-leading Detroit Tigers.

2014 Houston Astros Schedule

Coming off of an up and down first season in the A.L. West, the Astros are reloaded with another talented squad bursting with promise and hopes of challenging for a playoff spot. The Astros have some young players that are looking to make their mark on the American League West, and that could go a long way in helping this team climb the division standings this season. The Astros have a ton of great matchups on their home schedule to be played at Minute Maid Park this season, and you can be there in the stands to take it all in live and in person. But you also don't want to forget about the road games, as you have 81 different opportunities to see your team from a completely different perspective as the Astros look to do their thing on the diamond and put together a memorable season.

Of course, winning within the division would be a great start. The Astros will host the reigning American League West champion Oakland Athletics multiple times this season in what should be some of the biggest games of the year for Houston. The A's are a well-rounded baseball team through and through, and have laid out the blueprint for how to win without a huge payroll. This is a model the Astros may look to follow, and beating the A's this season could be a great way to kick start a winning streak. The Astros have a lot of talented players that are looking to make a name for themselves in this league, and a contest against the division champs is the perfect opportunity to showcase their skills.

The Astros will host their other division rivals quite often as well, so games against the Rangers, Angels and Mariners will be huge in 2014. The Rangers were the best of that bunch last season, and they boast one of the better lineups in the bigs. The Astros will have to bring their best to come out on top against such a good squad. Whatever team the Astros are facing off with, though, they'll play better if they have a solid crowd behind them. From home games against top-tier interleague foes to out-of-town battles with divisional rivals, the schedule has plenty of different opportunities for fans this season.

Houston Astros Team Info

The Houston Astros play in the American League West division of Major League Baseball, a division that also features the Oakland Athletics, Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners. The Astros finished in last place in the division in 2013, but are hoping for a meteoric rise in the standings in 2014. As their talented young players mature and the Astros get more accustomed to playing in the A.L. West, a division they joined before the 2013 season, things should go better for this ball club. The Astros are hoping to steadily improve this season and show the American League what they're made of. Of course, it helps that they have guys like Chris Carter lighting it up at the plate and Scott Feldman on the bump, giving the Astros a chance every time they take to the diamond.

Houston Astros History

The Houston Astros were founded in 1962 as the Houston Colt.45s. The organization quickly ditched the firearm theme in 1965 and renamed the team the Astros. The Astros spent most of their existence playing in the Astrodome, a stadium they called home from 1965 to 1999. The team now plays their home games at Minute Maid Park, where you can always count on thousands of fans at every single game as the Astros look to round into form and swing their way back into the postseason. Houston made their only World Series appearance in 2005 and their fans are hungry to see them get another crack at the title with a talented team filled with promising young players.

Houston Astros Trivia

Who holds the Astros franchise record for the most home runs in a single season?

The answer is former Houston slugger Jeff Bagwell, who clocked 47 homers in 2000. Bags was one of the very best first basemen off the 1990s and helped lead the Astros in a big way alongside Craig Biggio, solidifying both of them as the gold standard for excellence in an Astros uniform.

The Fans

When it comes to baseball, the fans of the game are about as loyal as it gets. Baseball has been around for more than a century, and it's a way of life for many people in the United States. Those folks never want to miss a game, and always head out to root for the home team when they can. You can see these fans in action, and join them in their cheering for the team, this season when you head out to see the Astros take the field to do battle with an American League foe.

But even though home games at Minute Maid Park are an absolute must for Astros fans, you also don't want to forget about the rest of the schedule. Away games are something that every fan needs to see first-hand sooner or later, as you'll get a completely different perspective on Astros baseball as you see if they have what it takes to pull down a big win in foreign territory. Home or away, the schedule is filled with possibilities and you'll be greeted by thousands of fellow fans at every turn.
