'Jeopardy' takes jab at Astros futility

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Though many prospect-type media like what the Astros are doing for the future, the state of the major-league club at present is that of a laughingstock. They have failed to win even 57 games in a season for three straight campaigns, with their 56-106 mark in 2011 being their best record in the past three seasons.

The run is historically futile, and even the esteemed game show Jeopardy has noticed.


My answer to Mr. Stoots is -- if I can channel Col. Jessup -- I don't have the first damn clue.

Apparently the question is: "What is a blowout preventer?"

What a creative name.
