HOUSTON -- We had the Killer B's more than a decade ago, and now we have the Orange Crush.
After a debate on the KHOU 11 Facebook page, Astros fans weighed in on their favorite nickname for our heavy hitters.
Some of the top suggestions were:
THE ABC’S (Altuve, Bregman, Correa, Springer) .. although this leaves out some key players,
THE BOMB SQUAD
THE BOOM SQUAD
THE BOOM BOYS
THE DILLY DILLY BOYS (lol)
THE JUICE BOX HEROES
THE ORANGE CRUSH
In an online poll, The Bomb Squad received 10 percent of the votes, The Juice Box Heroes received 8 percent and Orange Crush received 82 percent.
Orange Crush is the clear winner, despite some complaints the Denver Broncos Defense had the same nickname back in the 70's.
