As others have said, it's not a big deal. They didn't have any real NL rivalries. If they start winning again, everything will be fine.

to the new era in Astros baseball. Hopefully attendance will pick up again, and baseball popularity in Houston will rise to higher levels.
Good post, but it is a big deal to Astros fans.

Also, they do have an NL rivalry with the Cardinals (who had a farm team in Houston before the Colt 45's/Astros were established) and lesser ones with the Cubs, Reds and back in the 2-division NL West days with the Dodgers. Thankfully they're playing the Cardinals, Reds and Brewers in interleague next year to keep that going.

New uniforms, logo, etc. to be announced on Nov. 2nd. Can't wait to get a current orange and blue Astros hat again.
