Just because I want to, here's a link to another Bleacher Report prediction post, in which the Astros are predicted to finish 5th. But not for the reason you might expect:
I like this team for giving ex-Met Jeff Keppinger a legitimate role on the team. He's one of my favorite players. But aside from Wandy Rodriguez, this whole team doesn't impress me. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't see it.
Interesting. So "thumbs up" to Jeff Keppinger, but Hunter Pence? Eh.
