We are now less than five hours from witnessing the first pitch of the 2016 Astros season, a campaign that promises to be one of the franchise’s most intriguing in the last decade. While the season will not come without its twists and turns, in the end, many expect the Astros to finish with a very solid record.

The Astros have surely come a long way since this time four years ago, and General Manager Jeff Luhnow has a lot to do with this resurgence. Baseball is cool again in Houston, and many Astros fans have been trying to predict how their hometown team will fare this season.

With that in mind, the Climbing Tal’s Hill staff wants to give you our final predictions on how the 2016 season will go for your Houston Astros. In this article, each writer will give his or her record prediction and then guess on how far the Astros will go in the 2016 MLB playoffs. So, let’s get to it.
