The Houston Astros will be switching leagues after 50 years in the senior circuit. Perhaps the change to the American League will help change the fortunes of the team, who are still looking for their first World Series title.

And along the way, they have lost some of the most heartbreaking games in baseball history.

Great pitching chances squandered. The winning run stranded on base. Runners being picked off. Odd bullpen decisions. Eight extra-inning losses.

A bounce here in 1980, a carom there in 1986, an extra hop in 1999, a pop up in 2004 or an RBI in 2005 and who knows? The Astros might have a few World Series banners flying.

These are the 15 most painful playoff losses in the history of the team.
