One of MLB’s hottest teams to begin 2015, the Astros are delighting their fans and sneaking up on the baseball world by entering contention much quicker than expected. The ‘Stros pack a power punch up and down the lineup, from big man Chris Carter at first to young five-tool outfielder George Springer to utility infielder Luis Valbuena. They’re almost all in a prime age of late 20s. The ages of the pitching staff vary a bit more, but they’re an interesting combination of veterans like Scott Feldman and Roberto Hernandez and late-blooming youth like Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh. With Luke Gregerson in the bullpen, they’ve brought in veteran excellence and a stable closer, something they haven’t had for a couple years. On paper they don’t seem to have enough to win through an entire season, but at the same time they weren’t expected to be in first place after two months. The Houston Astros play at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston. As far their on-field play, their move to the AL was near the time of their hitting rock bottom. 2013, their first season in the AL, saw their last of three consecutive 100-loss seasons, making them the first team to do that since the Royals of the early 2000s. But the tides began to turn last year with 70-92 record, and a hot start to 2015 emphasizes how far they’ve come. They’re looking for their first winning season since 2008 and first playoff berth since losing the World Series in 2005. Minute Maid Park is one of the coolest parks in the league with air-conditioned comfort or open-air retractable roof, the train on the left field wall, the Crawford Boxes in left field, Tal’s Hill in center, and just a unique vibe that keeps fly balls interesting.
