As I type this post, the Astros currently sit with a 38-16 record through the first two months of the season. This is the best record in the league, which isn’t a statement we usually see about Houston baseball. Ever.

Like all contending teams, the Astros are receiving contributions from high and low. The major league roster is filled with talent, and there is even more talent lurking in the minors. Other teams should fear what the Astros are and what they may become. They probably won’t be as baseball is unpredictable. One can hope and dream, though.

But I’m not going to type any more negative statements for the time being. No, I want to now concentrate on the present, which includes the Astros top performers for the month that we just saw come to a close: May. Thus also happen to be one of the best months in terms of the win-loss record in franchise history.
