What a surprise from the Houston Astros, whose predictions were, let’s just say, bleak and what do you know, halfway through the first month they just killed it with 14 wins in 15 games by beating the Seattle Mariners, Los Angeles Angels, San Diego Padres and Oakland Athletics followed by a 7 game lead in the American League West.

With Dallas Keuchel considered a true ace, Lance McCullers, George Springer and Carlos Correa, they have conquered the field placing themselves at a plus 62 run differential, 3rd best in the majors with a 3.5 game lead.

Jose Altuve says: “I’ve always been a very positive mind. I knew we were going to get to this point. I knew the effort of the front office and the players put together, some day it was going to be good like it is right now.”

The Houston Astros unexpected rise is paying off in the standings, and with two of their players selected for the All Star Game, Dallas Keuchel and Jose Altuve, we will be witnessing an invasion of players in the American League.
