The Astros have come a long way from their cellar days, as the major league club is slated to take on the Red Sox in the ALDS starting Thursday. The team rebuilt through strengthening their farm system, and that depth has not gone away as the team became successful. One could make the argument that this team that I just assembled could defeat the 2013 Houston Astros. While that may be pushing it, it isn’t a far stretch
While the Astros prepare for a deep run, take a moment and think about how lucky you are to be a fan of a team that is prepared to compete now and in the future. This is going to be a fun organization to follow over the next few years.
