On the whole, the pandemic could not have come at a better time for the Houston Astros. When spring training opened in 2020, Houston players and management were being barraged over the sign stealing scandal that cost manager AJ Hinch, many of his coaches, and the general manager their jobs. Some headhunting pitchers on opposing clubs sent not such friendly messages to Astros hitters in exhibition games. But when play was suspended, the topic was virtually killed. Houston limped home with a losing record but did get into the pandemic expanded playoffs. They advanced to the American League Championship Series before losing to the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3. Houston is not a favorite on the 2021 futures board but does have enough talent to lurk in the bushes for another postseason bid.

2021 Season Preview

In 2020 the Houston Astros finished 29-31 with 29-28-3 over the total. The Astros were second place in the American League West behind the Oakland A’s. Houston had MLB metrics of 14th for runs scored, 19th for home runs, 13th for staff earned run average, sixth for quality starts, and 15th for the bullpen. Houston ranked best in MLB for the fewest errors committed.

Center fielder George Springer has departed, but the rest of the core roster remains intact. Houston remains a talented club with the fifth-highest payroll in MLB. The Astros infield of Yuli Gurriel, Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, and Alex Bregman remains one of the best in the game.

Manager Dusty Baker, age 71, was hired in a hurry last year after the sign stealing scandal blew up. Baker is a three-time National League manager of the year with 1892 career wins and a win percentage of .532. He holds the distinction of leading the San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Washington Nationals, and Houston Astros to the playoffs. Baker led the Giants to the 2002 National League pennant. A World Series championship is the only thing missing from his resume.

Of great concern at the start of the season is that number one starter Justin Verlander was on the 60-day injury list. Therefore it will be Zack Greinke taking the hill as the top starting pitcher for 2021.
