Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our post 2022 revision of our top Houston Astros.
As for all of our top 50 players in basketball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the American League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Last year, Houston won their second World Series, and they are blessed with young talent, two of which make their first appearance on this list.
As always, we present our top five, which was not impacted by last season:
1. Jeff Bagwell
2. Craig Biggio
3. Jose Altuve
5. Cesar Cedeno
You can find the entire list here.
Despite his good year, Altuve was unable to pass Biggio for #2.
Justin Verlander, who won the Cy Young, and is now with the New York Mets, jumped from #19 to #11; an impressive feat considering the relative brevity of his Astros career.
Infielder, Alex Bregman, moved up two spots to #14.
Yuli Gurriel also moved up by two, with a new rank of #35.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
