Comparing the best groups of players in Houston Astros history.
Well, the accolades have been awarded to Houston Astros individuals, and playoff checks are being cut. Other than the upcoming Winter Meetings there isn’t a whole lot going on in baseball right now. This leaves a man to ponder (while metabolizing my turkey and stuffing), just how well the current Astros players compare to the past. We will look at Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa, and George Springer (ABC’S). Then we will compare them to the legends Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, and Lance Berkman (Killer B’s).
The B’s that I’ve selected were Astros for their entire careers. With the minor exception of Berkman who ended up being traded in his twilight years. Let’s look at the numbers.
