Even though the playoffs are still going on and the 2011 season is not over for eight teams, the Astros can close the books on a very disappointing season. It was the first 100 loss season in the organization's history and there wasn't too much that went right.
The pitching staff is in shambles after Jordan Lyles and Bud Norris who look like two good young pitchers for years to come in Houston. Jose Altuve will be the answer at second base and J.D. Martinez in left for the foreseeable future but that is about it.
Now that the Astros can put the 2011 season in the rear-view mirror, it is time to turn the attention to the future and the upcoming offseason. These are the biggest holes that need to be filled this offseason.
