The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Finally it's long reign of terror is finished

Not quite. They're still exploring more options other than demolition.

My fondest memory of the Astrodome:
Interesting that a baseball franchise will now be named after a building that no longer exists.
"Booing on opening day is like telling grandma her house smells like old lady."--WOY
shrinking US space program, one could also argue that they're named after an industry that barely exists there.
Sad to see in a way. When the Astrodome was opened it was a real marvel. It was just mind boggeling at the time to imagine playing baseball or football inside a covered building. It was often called the 8th wonder of the world. I can always remember my dad saying he would like to see it someday. He never got the chance. RIP Astrodome.

Would the "Rockets" change their name too? (At least the "Texans" should be safe )
The minor league team was known as the Buffaloes (the Buffaloes derived their nickname from Buffalo Bayou, the principal waterway through Houston.)
think of all those great games Scipio Spinks pitched there, how lugubrious
What about Colt 45s? That is a rather safe name and shouldn't cause any problems.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
the astros or colt 45's once started an all rookie team I think Joe Morgan was the second baseman, Brock Davis and Sonny Jackson were also on the team pitcher was Jay Dahl
Still going to cost a bundle to demolish the place, what a waste.
