08:10 AM ET 03.27 | Not much is expected to go right for Houston in 2013, but there is this. After an hour-long meeting with Astros owner Jim Crane on Tuesday, former Astros pitcher, broadcaster and manager Larry Dierker said "everything is fine" between him and the team's owner. Dierker said last week he would end his contractual relationship with the Astros after April 15 because of his disappointment about not being selected for a broadcast job and concerns about the team's direction. After meeting with Crane, he said that while he will not have a contract for the 2013 season, he is willing to make limited appearances on a voluntary basis as his schedule allows and will revisit his association with the team after the season.

So the Astros throw a team with a payroll of $25 million on the field, charge MLB prices and take in MLB guaranteed shared revenue and luxury tax money and MLB trademark sales and pockets all the profit and we should care?

....amen.....technically, they are doing the right thing to start from scratch and rebuild...but should at least have the lowest prices on everything in mlb as a result......instead, locally there is a strong sense mlb fans are getting their teeth kicked in by the greedy owner........

They're a long long way from being Mike Scott's Astros.

And they switch to the AL West. Bud Selig and MLB owners care not about the fans.
