Houston Astros Tickets for Sale

The Houston Astros happen to play baseball in one of the most beloved ballparks in the MLB and the TicketSpecialists are happy to be able to provide Houston Astros tickets at the Minute Maid Park. We are the best provider of these seats, offering the best locations in the stadium at the cheapest prices for the rest of the 2012 season schedule.

The Astros signed a $100 million for a six-year deal, a franchise record, with free-agent outfielder Carlos Lee. It was the smartest money manager Phil Garner ever spent. The formidable offensive power duo of Carlos Lee and All-star first baseman, Lance Berkman, is everything the Astros hoped for. Pitcher Woody Williams, also new to the Astros was signed at the same time as Lee, for a two-year contract of $12.5 million. The game Williams has shown is remarkably different from Lee's though. In January this year,Mark Loretta was brought in from the Red Sox' on a one-year contract to fill in the position of Second Baseman. Loretta, slowly becoming a Houston favorite, has a 12-season career average of .299 with 68 home runs and 525 RBIs in a total of 1385 games. Outfielder Luke Scott hit a cool .359 this spring. Starting Pitcher Roy Wizard of O's Oswalt, with his 15 wins and 2.98 ERA last season will continue to be the staff ace. New Astros recruit Jason jennings will fill up the void in the starting rotation, following Roy Oswalt in the lineup.

The Houston Astros have a high expectations every year as the team begins the season in March and plays throughout the summer into the fall. The lofty expectations have fans waiting to hold playoff tickets in their hands come October for Minute Maid Park, as the team continues to play hoping for its first World Series victory.

The Astros have come close, but the playoff tickets have always left the Houston fans wanting more. The franchise took awhile to shake the expansion learning curve, first making the playoffs in 1980 after 18 seasons of struggle and had a short era of success that ended in playoff appearances in 1981 and 1986. It was not until later though that postseason seats became a guarantee.

Catcher Adam Everett's off season bat work could give the Astros' offense a boost. Worried about a nagging pain in his lower back, the team omitted Everett from the lineup for the second continuous day. In 2006,Shortstop Brad Ausmus won his third Gold Glove after setting a career high of 9 sacrifice hits. He also averaged a fielding percentage of .998. Ausmus, currently suffers from a sore shoulder. For championship winning teams the seed of all their problems seem to be their injuries. The Astros' must rely on their formidable offense to compensate for a weak pitching. The star players need some recovery as their performance can be backed by their skill and experience. Great players, great spirit, great management, Astros' could bring back the victory title from the cardinals' this season.

Minute Maid Park had an exciting close to last season as the Houston Astros made a serious run at the wild card spot. They, of course, came up short as the team crippled its chances with a poor mid-September. Still, for a team still searching for an identity in the post Biggio and Bagwell era, it was not a bad showing.

The era that ushered in Craig Biggio, an all around talent that could hit for power and average, steal plenty of bases, and end up paying three positions, and Jeff Bagwell, a power hitter with a quick swing that tormented pitchers and the left field stands for years. The two were the foundation of a club that won four National League Central titles from 1997 to 2001, but could not overcome the Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series. Fans watched every year clutching their tickets as the team could not make it out of the first round.

Finally in 2004 the Astros were able to defeat the Braves, but the next test against the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series ended their run before the World Series. The fans bought playoff tickets in 2005 enthralled with the breakthrough from the year before and were right to do so. Houston again went to work conquering their demons, first beating the Atlanta Braves again in the NLDS and then striking back for the season before, dispatching the St. Louis Cardinals in six games in the NLCS. Their first trip to the World Series did not end in their first victory. Instead, the Chicago White Sox beat the Astros in four straight games.

The hope is that veterans Lance Berkman and Carlos Lee will be recognized as two of the games most dangerous hitters. In fact, most of this club, sans outfielders Hunter Pence and Michael Bourn, are veterans. This is really the Houston Astros three years ago without the believed B-Boys. There are some holes in the lineup, but the team has enough hitting capability to make another attempt to secure a wild card spot, they just need to get hot before the All Star break.

The pitching is just as old. Wandy Rodriguez is the youngest projected starter at the age of 29. Still, Roy Oswalt remains a solid ace, and veterans like Mike Hampton and Brian Moehler have managed to stick around for a reason. Jose Valverde is a great closer and the bullpen pitched well last season.

For the Astros to avoid an early exit the team will need the supporting cast around the new cornerstones of the team, Lance Berkman and Carlos Lee, to step up. Ty Winnington and Miguel Tejada have to hit better with runners on and rising star Hunter Pence needs to transform into the third amigo. It is not that the players are not hitting, it is that the pitching staff has struggled. Roy Oswalt, Brian Moehler and Wandy Rodriguez have been mediocre, but they are the three best starters. The bullpen is not much better, so the team will live and die by the offense.

The Ticket Specialists has the playoff tickets for those Houston Astros games at Minute Maid Park and on the road to allow the fans to see what the offense will do. The cheap prices and the immense inventory make finding a match for any fan easy. It is easy to match up the tickets available with the seating chart to get the best value in town and to watch the Astros as they try and take another step to bringing the first championship to Houston.

The real question for the Houston Astros is how long until they shed the vets and begin to build around budding stars Hunter Pence and speedster Michael Bourn. I have a feeling that this may be the last season. If the club stays in the fight then this roster will last until the end of the season. If not, get in line for a spectacular fire sale.

This team is not going to the postseason. Rather they have begun taking rebuilding seriously, sending Carlos Lee to the Miami Marlins. Just about every other player on the MLB roster is available though. Well, save second baseman Jose Altuve and shortstop Jed Lowrie, who has landed on the DL. Altuve was the lone Astros representative at the 2012 MLB All Star Game. He hit .297 with a .341 OBP and 16 stoeln bases. At 22 years old, the Houston Astros have their second baseman of the future. Lowrie hit 14 homeruns before landing on the Disabled List. Houston may have two starters set for the future in the outfield. The entire outfield is young, but left fielder J.D. Martinez has some power, with 11 homeruns. Center fielder Jordan Schafer has some speed with 22 stolen bases.

Now, onto the real story in this second half of the season, the tantalizing players General Manager Jeff Luhnow can move. This list includes starter Wandy Rodriguez and closer Brett Myers. Rodriguez has 11 quality starts in 19 games and has a 3.51 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. There are plenty of contenders looking for a starter for the middle of the rotation and Rodriguez is a perfect player to that end. Myers is not having the best of seasons. His 3.52 ERA, 1.34 WHP, and 5.87 K/9 are subpar numbers, but his career numbers suggest he could be a solid addition to a bullpen in need.

There is not much to trade on the offensive side of the roster. Most of the players are simply meant to serve as a placeholder until the prospects are ready to move up from Double and Triple-A. The Houston Astros are not preparing to use the talent the franchise does possess to begin stocking up for a pennant chase in the not-too-distant future. The TicketSpecialists have the Houston Astros tickets to see the team as it is molded.
