Despite the fact that our Houston Astros were horrible last year, racking up a whopping 111 losses while finishing 45 games out of first place in the American League West, I like to think positively.

At least the team still has a sense of humor, at least that's the impression I get from this photo of team bullpen coach, Craig Bjornson. I'm sure that look will intimidate all opposing teams.

You know, it's always good when the other team is afraid to face you, but it's not so good when little children are frightened, too.

It's too bad -- Bjornson may be the nicest guy on Earth, we don't know. He may have a great baseball mind, too. But, unfortunately, for him, all we get from this photo is he's really adept at giving a look that says, "I'm scary, but also scared."

We know players may not look their best in spring training, but let's hope the same can be said for coaches.
