And As our friends at ABC 13 pointed out over the weekend:

Economics

Let’s get this one out of the way. In 2001, the average price of a new house was $136,150. The cost of a gallon of gas was $1.46. (We could use that again.) U.S. Postage stamps cost just $0.34.

Prepare to feel old

Here are the ages of some Astros players in the year they last won the division:

    • Jose Altuve, 11
    • Carlos Correa, 7
    • George Springer, 12
    • Dallas Keuchel, 13
    • Alex Bregman, 8
