    Astros considering name change.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slu...ros-namechange

    It seems for awhile now that that 'Stros really haven't had an identity, but I don't know if a name change would do them any good. I'd love to see them switch to the old rainbow uniforms though. What do you guys think?

    Reading the article I see that the new owner is trying to be agressive in how he attracts fans into the seats -- cheaper seat prices!

    Of course the product he's presenting should be discounted - but $5.00 seats -- $1.00 kid's seats --- club level seats with reduced prices -- got to give credit.
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    I've got nothing really to say on it but some moves they've made this offseason haven't made much sense to me. I mean why sign Jack Cust if you have basicly the same guy under contract right now in carlos lee?

    Yeah I was hoping they would follow the trend of the Padres, Blue Jays, and Baltimore by going with the old Miami Marlins unis like the ones the minor league teams called that wore when they were still there.

    They'll probably have a fan vote and end up with some dumb cowboy name like Gunslingers or Outlaws or something like that.
