It’s been an interesting couple of weeks. As I run into and chat with other Houston Astros fans, the most common question has been, “Now what?” After setting a franchise record for games lost (106) and spending a season wondering if new ownership would or would not happen, fans are still left in limbo.
The discussion of whether the move to the American League will happen and should happen has pretty much been hashed out. If you’re going to have an opinion or argument on it, you already do. By the way, it’s never to late to contact Bud Selig and Drayton McLane and tell them what you think. While you’re at it, flood Jim Crane’s office with faxes. ;D
And so now we all sit and wait. We wait for the mid-November owner’s meeting. We wait for the winter meetings and free agency hoopla to begin. We wait to see who is invited to Spring Training. We wait to see if we have a chance in hell of having anything to look forward to in 2012.
That’s a lot of waiting. So, how are you killing the time? I’ve been learning about hockey. I’m watching the World Series. What are you doing?
