There's a lot of potential on that team. They should be fun to watch!
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

That really is a fantastic roster. They might come third in the AL Central this year.

the wife and I have bought a house in Georgetown and will be moving down from north Texas as soon as ours sells. Looking forward to catching some RR games.

The 'Stros coming back to RR is one of the reasons that this void has seemed more voidy than most to me. Got my fireworks package for Christmas. Can't wait!

I'd love to see them play Arlington or Baltimore.

Well ... they did not look great in a 7-3 loss to the Hooks toddy.

Jamie Ritchie may be the worst excuse for a catcher I have seen in pro ball. He was even dropping/missing warm up pitches. I was not scoring, but there were at least 2 passes balls along with at least 1 wild pitch where he could have recovered more quickly.

Myles Straw started at SS and I am convinced that he belongs in the OF. Throws were tentative with 1 E and another safe st first due to the weak throw. Nothing like the OF cannon i saw last year.

Yordan Alvarez started in LF and made me think of Jack Cust. He made a couple of routine fly balls look way to exciting, and misplayed another into a 3-base error. He did blast a solo HR, though.

Akeem Bostick looked pretty good in the start. Reymin Guduan was bringing heat but hittable. Kent Emmanuel looked solid. Corbin Martin had a tough couple of innings, but grandad duty kept me from watching him closely.

They needed more rain. 1 hit to go with 17 strikeouts in the opener.

Hinch's "DH by committee" strategy might get rethunk in a few months.

I am going to be doing color with Capps for a game or two each month this season. I am so looking forward to talking about some guys I know a little about. Lots of talent  in RR in April.

The conversion to utility player is still on.  Today is Straw's third start at short stop in five games.
Goin' for a bus ride.
