Before the season started, the best case scenario for the Houston Astros was a .500 record and the chance to give younger players more major league experience, then possibly build from there.
With yesterday's loss at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers guaranteeing them a losing record for the season, the fact that they traded away their two best players and a change in ownership nearing, it’s safe to say that best-case scenarios are out the window.
The only thing the Astros are winning these days is the race (with the Baltimore Orioles and others) to secure the No. 1 pick in next year’s MLB Draft. With that being said, someone has to wonder: Will the Astros win another series this season?
With the Astros already losing the first two games of this weekend's series against the Dodgers, they have already lost their chance at winning this matchup. After the Astros finish with the Dodgers, they have 13 series (two of them are four-game series) left in the season.
I will break them down to which ones they have the best possibility of winning, which ones they have a slight chance of winning and the ones they have no chance of winning. It won’t be easy, but there is a chance they could come out on top again this season.
