Season Previews: Houston Astros

With Spring Training already underway, it's time for one of our favorite things in all the world: . Four years ago, they began as a semi-serious analysis and ended up as half-assed haiku. We're just gonna go with what we know. Finishing up our preview of the National League Central, here are the Houston Astros.

So long to Geoff Blum
Paulino and Matt Lindstrom
Hello Clint Barmes

Bill Hall is new too
Brett Myers has huge eyebrows
Wandy Rodriguez!

Carlos Lee at first
Johnson at the hot corner
Quintero at home

Hunter Pence in right
Bogusevic in left field
Mike Bourn plays center

Will Rowland-Smith pitch?
It's not J.A. it's just Jay
And Bud Norris too

But let's not forget
Nelson Figueroa is
A fun name to say

Arias and Wright
Brandon Lyon shuts it down
With help from Lopez

Change is a good thing
Like maybe Bo the Bailer
Got some balls this year

Will they rise above
Fourth in the NL Central?
Well, it could happen

If you bet on sports
Bet on the Astros when they
Play the Cubs or Bucs

Yep, that's about the only fun thing about Figueroa.
