While we have been open (often) about how Jeff Bagwell should have gotten into the Baseball Hall of Fame at the very least by his second year of eligibility, He at least earns this honor by being selected as the greatest Houston Astro of all-time.

A career Astro, Bagwell arrived as a trade for Larry Andersen (how lopsided was that?), Bagwell was named the National League Most Valuable Player in 1994 and at his peak was a legitimate five tool player.  He played great defense at First Base, had 449 Home Runs, 202 Stolen Bases and finished his career just three batting points of a career Slash Line of 3/4/5.  

Jeff Bagwell is one of those players that we wish history will look upon with more respect than he did when he played.  He deserves it.
