The baddest team in the 05 National League proved once and for all that it doesn't matter what you did or didn't do in the early season or in 44 seasons past. The fair weather fans who dis the Astros year after year - because they "know" the team will choke - are 10x bigger losers than this club ever was. Houston, we have a pennant!

A great but underachieving baseball team that makes it to the postseason nearly every year and will eventually win the World Series (knock on wood). They are one of the classiest teams ever and have many future hall of famers on their team with Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, etc. They assembled one of the best postseason pitching rotations in baseball history in 2005 with Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Roy Oswalt and don't forget the decent Brandon Backe.
I have and always will live and die with the Houston Astros.
Underachieving choke artist team that can't win when it counts.
The Houston Astros have been swept again in the playoffs!
The Houston Astros have failed to win late in the regular season and have been eliminated from any playoff hope
Shitty ass team that cheats in order to win. Everett never tagged Molina at 2nd base and knew he didn't but agreed with the umpire's call. Fuck you Everett. I hope your balls get chewed off by an elephant. I'm glad you lost to the White Sox and want to assure you that you'll never get to the World Series again.
I hate the Houston Astros.
