The Houston Astros came out of nowhere last season to make the playoffs and come within six outs of advancing to the American League Championship Series versus the Blue Jays. The Royals eventually beat the Astros and rolled through the Blue Jays and Mets to win the World Series after falling short versus the Giants. The Astros have a great nucleus of players that should keep the Astros in contention for at least a window of five years.
The Astros should try to avoid some of the mistakes that the Angels did by signing Josh Hamilton and Albert Pujols to long term deals. While Pujols was able to bounce back, the fact that the Angels are still paying a large amount of Hamilton’s contract to play for the Rangers. I am not saying the Astros should not sign a premium free agent; they just need to be smart with who they choose.
