In my personal opinion, no team in the National League has been more disappointing than the Houston Astros.
Thankfully, the Astros are not the WORST team in the league, but they are pretty damn close and are absolutely in the NL cellar.
Entering the 2010 MLB All-Star break, Houston holds a 36-53 overall record (fifth-place in the NL Central) and is 12.5 games behind division-leading Cincinnati.
The Astros are also in the bottom three in the majors in terms of team batting average, with Houston batting a lowly .238 through 89 games.
Other categories where they remain in the cellar in terms of overall league team stats include: RBIs, home runs, hits, and runs.
With a dismal first half in the rear view mirror, I’m fairly certain some major changes are heading Houston’s way in the very near future. The first one is already being talked about, as the team could soon part ways with ace Roy Oswalt.
The NL’s Biggest Team Disappointment award at mid-season is a pretty easy decision in my opinion, with Houston winning the honor hands-down.
