The Houston Astros haven't been designated to AAA yet?

I personally would rather see Darvish pitch tonight than Harrison.

I'm still confused as to how the Astros made it to Opening Night? Does the MLB really have high hopes for them? I figured they would have put 2 playoff teams out there, or anyone other than the Astros. I think I'd rather watch the Marlins than them.

They need all the help they can get. This is their only national game, I believe. They're trying to play up this rivalry.

I think it's a way to show casual fans that the Astros have moved to the AL. I bet they'll be talking about it all night.

I'm banking on the "rivalry" and how it will take off now that both teams share a division.

Makes sense as every game after this one will be better, so they can say "WOW, look at this season, the games keep getting better and better!"
