All Things Astros and a whole lot more
After Friday night’s game the Astros had earned a very strong 12-5 record, only a few percentage behind the 11-4 Baltimore Orioles for the best record in the major leagues. Considering the Astros were an ugly 5-12 in 2016 after 17 games and did not win their 12th game until May 8th in their 32nd game, 2017 is a fun revelation for all of Houston fandom.
One of the fun things about the team is the fact that they are doing this with one arm tied behind their back. Their leadoff man, George Springer, is putting up Chris Carter numbers with a .286 OBP, despite 7 HRs. Arguably the two best offensive players coming into the season, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, have combined for 1 HR. Correa has a puny .212 BA and a Marisnick-like .581 OPS. Man, what happens when those guys start producing?
So what else is fun so far?
So, what has made this start to the 2017 season fun for you?
