The Houston Astros are an American professional fake baseball franchise based in Houston, Texas They are in Major League Redditball's American League, and are one of the twelve Inaugural teams in the league. They were created by GM B.S. Bear

2017 season[edit]

The Houston Astros were announced as one of the first franchises of the MLR. In the 2017 Inaugural Draft, the Astros crowdsourced their selection and went with hometown favorite Jasper Orbit with their first pick. GM B.S.Bear was notably absent from the draft room, and rumors swirled over the upcoming viability of the Astros franchise. First day Winners & Losers articles were not favorable of the young upstart team.

In session one vs. the AZ Diamondbacks the Astros lead with grizzled veteran Smoothyl. Smoothyl's start as fakebaseball pitcher was auspicious, he made some noise about destroying the other team, and then promptly disappeared. He announced his retirement in a cryptic message to the commissioner and GM. Once again the viability of the Astros Franchise was called into question.

The Astros finished a strike shortened season 2-5.
