Houston Joins The Club

With the Astros 100th loss of the season, they’re guaranteed to be the 21st team to finish the season under .383 for 3 straight seasons. In fact, they’re on pace to be the worst team over a 3 years stretch since the late 70’s Blue Jays. They could wind up being worse in the past 50 years than anybody besides the early 60’s Mets. Like those Mets and Blue Jays tho, The Astros franchise has a bright future with lots of good minor league talent.
