Houston — The 2013 Astros, who lost their last 15 games of the year to finish with a franchise-worst record of 51-111, are, on merit, one of Texas Monthly magazine’s Bum Steers of the Year.
A justifiable runner-up, however, is Texas Monthly’s design department.
The magazine’s January 2014 cover features the lowly Astros and the equally lowly Texans among a crowd running in fright from an approaching “Steer-Zilla” monster heralds the Bum Steer Award selections. The Astros’ uniform design, however, is of the 2012 brick pinstriped uniform, not the orange-and-blue uniform design that debuted for the 2013 season.
