In this episode of CapFigure Podcast, we continue our 2017 team previews with the Houston Astros. With a young core of stars like Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and George Springer, the Astros launched to the national spotlight in 2015 after beating the Yankees in the Wild Card game. With immense expectations coming into the 2016 season, the Astros shook off a terrible start to come within a few wins of making the playoffs. With the addition of veteran sluggers Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran and Josh Reddick to an already potent core of young superstars, the Astros have hopes of winning a title in 2017. If you call yourself a baseball fan, you won’t want to miss a thing!

One thought on “CapFigure Podcast – Episode 29 (Houston Astros: Ready for Liftoff?)”
As a sports novice, have learned so much fr listening to Capfigure Podcasts. This episode gives us a rundown of the Astros year over year and highlights their ups and downs fr 2011 when they moved fr the NL to the AL.
Based on many factors discussed this could be their Year/window to pickup the division. Need to make some calculated moves. Angels, Athletics, Rangers, Mariners do not appear to be any significant competotors.
Solid, interesting and entertaining conversations btw Ryan and Tom.
PS – Ryan recommend that u keep ur singing career and power rankings on hold for quite a while lol.
Waiting for episode 30!
