How many games will the Astros win in 2011?

The Astros are heading to Philadelphia today in anticipation of tomorrow’s season-opener at the Phillies, which is scheduled for a 12:05 p.m. CT first pitch. It should be in the mid 40s with a chance of rain at first pitch.

No matter what you think of the Astros’ chances this season, if you’re a baseball fan you should be feeling some excitement on this day. With the Astros’ 25-man roster now set, we should have a better idea of they’re going to do this season.

Assuming their starting pitching stays healthy, it should have them in better shape than most of the prognosticators and predicting. The two keys for me are getting off to a quick start — which has been a huge problem in recent years — and staying healthy, which has already been an issue. The Astros don’t have much depth.

So, let’s have it. What are your predictions for the upcoming season.

Hopefully majority, but unfortunatly I think it is not going to be enought.

The Astros are not going to win many games this year if yesterdays opener against the Phillies is any indication. The manager lost the game yesterday after deciding to stay with closer Lyons waaay to long. Lyons was the only pitcher the Phils made real contact against and I mean they made contact. No ground balls, just blazing liners to the outfield. 7 straight hits – he should have been lifted after the 3rd or 4th hit while the Astros still had a chance to pull it out. It sucks when your manager loses the game for the team.
