As you can see, other than Dickie Thon, not too many stars have played at shortstop for the Astros. Considering I was young when Thon played, I learned a lot of Astros history in researching this post.
I enjoyed the challenge of the position, as I hope you enjoy reading it.
There were a couple other seasons that were in the running.
Here are some Honorable Mentions:
- 2006 – Adam Everett: .239/.290/.352/.642; 123 hits, 28 doubles, 6 triples, 6 HRs, 9 stolen base, 59 RBI, 3.5 WAR
- 2011 – Clint Barmes: .244/.312/.386/.698; 109 hits, 27 doubles, 12 HRs, 39 RBI, 3 stolen bases, 3.2 WAR
