I mentioned on Saturday that today we would have the team with the greatest amount of change this offseason. While other teams have basically overhauled their entire roster, the Houston Astros are changing divisions and leagues which trumps all free agent signings. Historically for me the Astros have sometimes played the role of a villain. When they were in the NL West in the 80's, I divided the teams into the good guys (Braves, Reds, Padres) and the bad guys (Astros, Giants, Dodgers). Since the Astros joined the NL Central, I have pulled back on thinking of them as a villain. In the last few years, there are few teams that I have cared less about than Houston and the move to the American League is probably going to cause that to continue. For the last 10 years or so, the Astros just haven't mattered.
If I were an Astros fan...

2012 Houston Astros Total Cards = 52
The one aspect of the 2012 Houston Astros season that I did enjoy was the season long "parade of uniforms" in celebration of their 50th anniversary. From the beginning of the season, they assigned a set amount of dates to wear each uniform from their past in chronological order for the most part. I tried to showcase each uniform, because for better or worse they are a part of Houston's history. Which of the Houston uniforms are your favorite and least favorite?
Thanx for reading.
