New Arrival: George Springer, of, Houston Astros

2014 National Treasures

There are a lot of reasons that I like George Springer.

First, I like the Astros.  I think that its mostly from reading Jim Boutons “Ball Four”, and how refreshing the Houston organization was compared to the Seatlle Pilot team that he was traded away from.  The other reason is that the Astros have been in a bit of a rough patch the last couple seasons, and its always fun to root for the underdogs.  And finally, not only is Springer a good player, but he seems like a cool guy too.  He always seems to be up for signing autographs, and people tell me is a very nice guy while doing it.  Obviously I can’t get him way out here…but hey…its nice to know.

But while the Astros might be a long time removed from the days of Biggio and Bagwell, I think that we don’t have long to wait until guys like Springer, Altuve, Jose Castro, Carlos Correa and Jon Singleton carve out their own little Houston dynasty.
