The Astros’ Problematic Long-Term Outlook

The Astros’ Problematic Long-Term Outlook

The Astros’ current run of success if among the most amazing in MLB history. Yes, what everybody now understands about their 2017 season will taint that tradition for lots of, however Houston has actually given that won a 2nd World Series, appeared in 2 more, and made the American League Championship Series each and every single year given that 2017. Trash can jokes will never ever head out of design for some, however what the Astros have actually achieved throughout several GMs and several supervisors in the previous 7 years is objectively amazing.

As we sit more than 40% of the method through the 2024 season, nevertheless, it’s ending up being significantly obvious that times might be altering. Houston sits 8.5 video games back of the Mariners in the American League West and would likewise require to leapfrog the protecting World Series champ Rangers to return into the department race. The Wild Card scene isn’t all that better. Houston is 5.5 video games back of the 3rd Wild Card area, however with 5 groups standing in between them which prospective playoff berth. The lineup has actually been annihilated by injuries.

At least at the minute, 2024 does not seem the Astros’ year. However, the larger issue for the Astros isn’t always what lies ahead in the last 3 and a half months of the existing season, however rather what looms beyond that point. Because when I state “times could be changing,” I’m not describing an easy 1 year hiatus from their generally deep postseason runs. When it concerns the Astros, they’re dealing with far bigger and even more worrying long-lasting concerns.
