How did this happen? The Astros have been my favorite team, not just in baseball, but in all of sports since I was old enough to have a favorite team. It was going to be hard enough to transition into life without Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio without all the other garbage that seems to be surrounding the team. How is it that in just a few months the Astros have gone from a justifiable slogan like “The Return of the Good Guys” to one of the major focal points of the steroids investigation? At this point the slogan would seem to be “Win at any cost.”
I don’t even have the energy to link to the articles about Roger Clemens and Miguel Tejada. I have no idea if they are guilty or not. But, I am disappointed that the Astros approach seems to be apathy. They really seem to not care if Clemens or Tejada did steroids. It is disappointing and for the first time in my life it is really dampening my enthusiasm for the Astros. Right now it is hard to be proud to be an Astros fan and it is even harder to find a reason to care about next season.
