For the first time since 2001, the Astros are division champs. The Astros clinched the division when they beat the mariners on Sunday. The Astros have only gone to the playoffs three times since 2001 and were wild cards each time, but now they are division champs, they wont have to play as a wild card team… Nobody wants to be a wild card team.
The Astros are one of eight teams to not have a world series win and this year they will be going at it with a new player, Justin Verlander. Can Justin bring a title to Houston?
