This isn't the Astros last season in case you were wondering?

As if three straight 100 loss seasons wasn’t painful enough, apparently there is a rumor going around on the internet that Houston’s 53rd season will be its last.

I have absolutely no idea where Chris got that information from, but he is not the only who is concerned about the Astros franchise only having 162 games left.

That’s about as backhanded a compliment as you can get, but hey, at least he wants the Astros to bounce back.

No, Stephanie, this is not really going to be the last Astros season. Jeff Luhnow did not go out and sign the likes of Scott Feldman and Anthony Bass just to give up. Ok, maybe that isn’t the best example – but you get the idea.

Apparently these people read this article on Sportspickle and thought it was real. The satirical article quotes a “team Facebook post” that details the reasons for the team calling it quits. Honestly, I didn’t think it was well written or funny, but if that’s your thing – go for it.

I can assure you that the Astros will be playing games this season and for the forseeable future. It may be hard for those of you without Comcast to believe, but Houston actually played a full season last year as well.

    It’s not the last season, but it probably ought to be. MLB should contract the Astros and Marlins, move the Rays from Tampa to Houston and split the 14-team leagues into even 7-team divisions. Have a dispersal draft for the players of the contracted franchises. Crane and Loria don’t deserve to own a baseball team. MLB can offer some compensation to Floridian fans for losing their teams. It’s a win-win-win otherwise.

      The Astros were in the World Series 9 years ago. It’s not like they have always been awful. That seems very drastic.

    They have not been there for at least 3 years. I’ve been following since the .45′s and have seen horrible things but this takes the cake.
    Either get the ball a rolling or fold so I can die in peace.
    This experiment has lost it’s flare.
