The Astros caught everybody by surprise this season. Being way ahead of their rebuild schedule, Houston led the way in the AL West all season long. That is, until the Rangers came charging and knocked George Springer & Co. off the top step of the podium.
Now the young and resurgent Astros find themselves clinging to a 1.5 game lead in the AL Wild Card standing in the dwindling days of the season. The Astros add bang for your buck offering up the electrifying Jose Altuve while also showcasing one of the leagues most exciting young players in shortstop Carlos Correa. With a home run mashing offense and a web-gem producing defense anything can happen if the Astors make it into the playoffs.
