Astros first baseman Jon Singleton made his much-anticipated MLB debut on Tuesday night at home against the Angels (HOU 7, LAA 2), and it turned out to be quite the auspicious occasion. Here's why ...

Excelsior, young 22-year-old debutante!

Singleton also drew a walk, and as such he's batting a rather tidy .333/.500/1.000 after one game.

In related matters, the Astros are a game over .500 since May 1. Regarding those Astros, it might be time to adjust thine expectations upward just a bit.
