With spring training approaching the halfway mark, the Astros seem to be a better team this year. In recent years, it has appeared that the Astros have had some holes on the team that led to losses. With an very active offseason, it seems that the Jeff Luhnow and the Astros have patched up those hole for the 2015 season.
In order to play .500 baseball for the year, the Astros would need to have a good team in multiple areas, not just one. If we break the Astros team into four categories, how do they rank in rotation, bullpen, hitting, and defense? For them to have a good year, everything needs to click right for the young team.
