Power Rankings!

Entering Week Three, let's see how the "experts" see the Astros:

Sporting News:
Astros: 30th
The Astros have hit just three home runs as a team entering the week. Fifty players have at least three home runs this season.

Astros: 29th
After their 0-8 start, the Astros are now 3-1 and are officially on a two-game winning streak after taking their weekend series in Wrigley Field. Lance Berkman is due back in the near future, as well, so it's not nearly as doom and gloom as it was for the 'Stros at this time last week. It's not all good news, either; Jeff Keppinger and Michael Bourn are the only two players hitting remotely well right now and Bud Norris' 3.52 ERA certainly won't stand if he keeps walking nearly a batter an inning.

Astros: 29th
Houston took two of three from the Cubs for its first series win of the season and gets Lance Berkman back from the DL on Tuesday

Hardball Talk:
Astros: 29th
The Astros have hit three home runs this year. Three. That's only three more than you've hit.
