The Houston Astros' midseason grade.
(60-29, leading AL West): We said this would be their year, and so far, the Astros have done nothing to disappoint us. Led by All-Stars Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and George Springer—the first trio of teammates with an OPS+ above 165 since 1895—the offense is a juggernaut. Both Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers have been brilliant, at least when available; they've combined for just 27 starts due to injuries. The Astros will need to shore up their rotation for October, but they have the pieces to do so.
