Surprise, surprise! The Astros are ranked last in the following Power Rankings:
It's going to take a few games to figure out if the Astros are this bad or if Philly and the Giants are that good. Oh, and they start three against the Cardinals today, so this season could get out of hand in a hurry.
Only the Lance Berkman-less Astros have managed to finish up the first week of the season without a win, and it's been an ugly week in Houston. They've been outscored 37-16 so far by the Phillies and Giants, and their schedule doesn't let up. Their next nine games are against the Cardinals, Cubs, and Marlins before they get a bit of a reprieve by hosting the Pirates.
The Astros are the majors' lone winless team and also have the worst run differential (minus-24).
