Fall TV preview 2016: 15 most promising new fall shows
FX's "Better Things," Netflix's "Luke Cage," Amazon's "Good Girls Revolt," Fox's "Pitch" and the CW's "Frequency" are among the 15 brightest fall newcomers. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Critics have only seen the pilot episodes for most new fall TV shows, so there's not enough evidence to conclusively identify the best new shows. But here are 15 newcomers from across the programming spectrum that look incredibly promising. "Pitch" (Fox, premiering Thursday, Sept. 22): Kylie Bunbury is a young star to watch in this engaging drama about the first woman to pitch for a Major League Baseball team. "The Exorcist" (Fox, premiering Friday, Sept. 23): It's a scary and suspenseful addition to TV's robust horror field. "Better Things" (FX, premiered Sept. 8): Co-created by Louis C.K., this wonderfully hard-edged comedy stars Pamela Adlon as a divorced and struggling actress with three children - and the struggle is evident in every scene. "Frequency" (The CW, premiering Wednesday, Oct. 5): Although a reworking of the 2000 film starring Jim Caviezel, the riveting drama starring Peyton List feels remarkably fresh and smart. "Marvel's Luke Cage" (Netflix, premiering Friday, Sept. 30): Marvel has another winner with this series starring Mike Colter as Luke Cage, the fugitive rebuilding his life in Harlem. "Good Girls Revolt" (Amazon, premiering Friday, Oct. 28): Set in the 1960s, this stylish drama stars Joy Bryant as Eleanor Holmes Norton, the lawyer hired to represent women working at Newsday. "Atlanta" (FX, premiered Sept. 6): Donald Glover ("Community") created this incredibly complex and clever comedy-drama mix set around the Atlanta rap scene (he plays Earn, a rap manager with big dreams and big obstacles). "Queen Sugar" (OWN, premiered Sept. 6): Oprah Winfrey's channel has its strongest scripted show yet with this drama about three siblings (Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Rutina Wesley and Kofi Siriboe) reuniting at their father's Louisiana sugar plantation. "This Is Us" (NBC, premiering Tuesday, Sept. 20): The feel-good drama follows four storylines that ultimately connect (making an emotional connection with viewers). "Chance" (Hulu, premiering Wednesday, Oct. 19): Hugh Laurie has found another marvelous TV role, playing a San Francisco forensic neuropsychiatrist in this series based on the novel by Kem Nunn. "The Good Place" (NBC, premiering Monday, Sept. 19): The pilot episode is better than good, providing winning roles for Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. "One Mississippi" (Amazon, premiering Friday, Sept. 9): Comedian Tig Notaro plays a fictionalized version of herself, traveling home to Mississippi after the death of her mother. "The Crown" (Netflix, premiering Friday, Nov. 4): Claire Foy has top billing in this 10-part British-American series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. "Designated Survivor" (ABC, premiering Wednesday, Sept. 21): The scripts need work, but another strong prime-time vehicle for Kiefer Sutherland. "High Maintenance" (HBO, premiering Friday, Sept. 16): The web series about a nameless marijuana delivery man becomes an HBO series, and a pretty good one, if a times a little slow and choppy.

2005 World Series trip culmination of Astros' Killer B's era
From 1998 through 2005, the Killer B's in their various incarnations were the heart and soul of the Astros' most successful period - four National League Central titles, two NL wild cards and the franchise's lone World Series appearance. [...] like Biggio, he never played for any other major league team, finishing his 15-year career as the Astros' all-time leader in home runs (449) and RBIs (1,529). [...] baseman Sean Berry was another integral member of the group from 1996 to 1998. A new B emerged in July 1999 when the Astros called up Lance Berkman, who had been their top draft pick in 1997 out of Rice, where in his final season he hit the astounding collegiate total of 41 home runs. Berkman garnered only 93 at-bats in his first Astros season, but with Bell dealt away in a December 1999 trade to the New York Mets, Berkman batted .297 with 21 home runs and a .949 OPS in 2000 and finished sixth in the NL Rookie of the Year voting. The Astros secured the wild card on the season's final day, and a 3-2 NLDS win over the Braves marked the first postseason series victory in franchise history. [...] in 2005, the Killer B's era culminated in the Astros' first World Series appearance. The White Sox won the first two games in Chicago, following a 5-3 victory in Game 1 with a dramatic 7-6 triumph that ended on a ninth-inning walkoff home run by Scott Podsednik, who had no homers in the regular season. A bad shoulder had limited Bagwell to 39 regular-season games, and that final game of the World Series would mark the last time he, Biggio and Berkman played together.
