To the Mullet go the spoils…

Business in the front and party in the back.

A look back at some of the Astro’s favorite Mullets…

Randy Johnson AKA The Big Unit, came out fierce after he was traded to the Astros at the trade deadline in 1997. He went on to post a 10–1 record, a 1.28 ERA, and 116 strikeouts in 84⅓ innings, and pitched 4 shutouts in 11 starts for the Astros.  Look at that hair flowing in the wind…Now that is a PARTY!!!

 

Infielder Ken Caminiti of the Houston Astros throws the ball during a game against the San Francisco Giants at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, California.

Infielder Ken Caminiti was the one that got away.  We knew he was an MVP in the making and not just because of the “San Jose Partay” he had going on.  He of course ended his story in tragedy.  He will always be remembered though as an ASTRO!!! And the best 3B we ever had. 

Portugal_Mark

Pitch Mark Portugal had his best season in 1993

when he posted 18 wins. Look at that Kentucky

Waterfall…Its a wonder he didn’t win the Cy Young.

Colby rasmus

Which leads to possibly the best Mulley of all.

Colby Rasmus has the makings of a Legend…

An extra base hit in 6 straight postseason tilts

to start his playoff career. Should have been 7 but he

decided to hit the roof at Minute Maid.

Batting .571 in the 2015 postseason

so far.  Be sure to be watching the first pitch too…
