3. Craig Biggio

The first Hall of Famer on this list is Craig Biggio. I know a lot of you reading think that he is the best Astro of all-time, but the stats say otherwise. Biggio played his entire 20-year career in Houston, going through three jersey changes, four position changes and one stadium change. He managed to make seven All-Star teams and finish fourth in MVP voting in 1997.

He had a career OPS of .796 and a career WAR of 65.4. If you look at the No. 1 and No. 2 on this list, he had a lower OPS than both, and a lower WAR than my No. 1. That’s why he sits at number three. No disrespect to the former coach at my high school though.
