The 2011 Astros season has been an unmitigated disaster.
On the field, the club will lose 100 games for the first time in its history and obviously shatter the mark for the worst winning percentage in history. They currently stand nine games out...of 29th place.
They have the top draft pick sewn up already, and are working on avoiding history. Their current target is to avoid losing 110 games.
Most fans already have their sights set on next year. This is where the rest of the mess comes into play. Who is going to own the team next year? Who will be making the decisions? How much money will be available to spend on free agents and in arbitration?
These are all questions that have to be answered, and they won't come easily.
