 Sorry, J.D.! You look disappointed.

These guys wore number 14, but only get a 1 candy heart rating. They’re also known as the Lonely Hearts Club:

More from Astros News

  • Jesus Guzman (2014) – The first baseman won a spot out of Spring Training, but was unable to put it together during the regular season.
  • J.D. Martinez (2011-13) – So much promise that never showed up while in Houston. Then he went to Detroit and we are all wondering what could’ve been.
  • Michael Bourn (2008) – Was not included because he switched to #21 and had his best seasons in that uni.
  • Charlie Hayes (2001) – A backup player who only appeared in 31 games.
  • Roger Cedeno (2000) – A base-stealing machine who appeared in 74 games.
  • Marty Martinez (1969-71) – A utility player who didn’t play in more than 78 games a season while in Houston.

In closing, let me foist some bad poetry upon you:

The Astros were once brick red,

They’re back to orange and blue,

To the Number 14s,

We love(d) you!
