The Rivalry

What is the ‘Stros’ regular season all-time record versus the Rangers?

It is official. This is the most anti-Latino White House – period. They know exactly what they are doing in including the citizenship question in the 2020 census. Puerto Rico was the preview.

It is finally here, and I hope it sticks around. Commentary is talking about the rivalry between the ‘Stros and the Rangers. Initially, folks were trying to manufacture one when interleague play began and we played in different leagues and that didn’t work. Then we joined the AL West in 2013 and again folks tried to manufacture one. Harvey kind of forced the issue and I guess it finally worked.

Rivalry? See this tweet:

#Astros owner Jim Crane acknowledges it’s a little extra special to open the regular season against the Rangers: “We had a few problems with Texas last year, not wanting to switch games with us. There’s plenty incentive to want to try to beat up on Texas, that’s for sure.”

Here is what Commentary said about that on August 29, 2017 right after Harvey hit:

In all fairness to the Rangers, they would have had to have a 12 game roadie toward the end of the season. Still, it would have been a nice gesture but I understand.

I wonder what the ‘Stros would have done if the shoe were on the other foot. We will never know because Arlington never gets hurricanes.

It is still good for the rivalry.

Here is my entire August 29 take: https://camposcommunications.wordpress.com/2017/08/29/good-for-the-rivalry/.

The rivalry is here.

Commentary said this yesterday:

I sure am glad the Rockets are 60-14 and the ‘Stros are World Series champs and their owners are focused on winning.

Chron Sports Columnist Brian Smith led off his latest column with this:

Out of touch?

Tone deaf?


Bob McNair didn’t do himself or the Texans any favors as the NFL’s annual meeting got underway in Orlando, Fla.

The Rockets, led by expected MVP James Harden, just rolled to their 60th win and are the best team in the NBA.

The Astros were the best team in baseball last season, just handed Jose Altuve a $151 million contract extension, and are only three days away from Opening Day and defending their crown during the 2018 season.

The Texans?

The team that went 4-12 last year still can’t get out of its own darn way.

Here is all of Smith’s column: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/columnists/smith/article/Smith-McNair-only-hurts-himself-Texans-with-12781919.php?utm_campaign=twitter-premium&utm_source=CMS%20Sharing%20Button&utm_medium=social.

What else can you say about this fella?

The ‘Stros are 65-102 against the Rangers. They have had our number for sure!

The price of a Saint Arnold at The Yard increased by 50 cents this season.
