There has been some cold streaks in the season, but over all the season has been incredible. The ‘Stros won their division, the  American League West, over the Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and the Texas Rangers. It seems as if this has become a routine, being this is the second year in a row they have won the division. Fans are extremely happy about this as well. Many fans have grown to love the players like George Springer, Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve, and any more.

Their chemistry is great; I think that they can go really far again this year, like they did last year.” He is not the only fan that is happy with the team this year. Melanie Talley is another fan that loves the Astros. “They’re doing so good. they broke the club record for the most wins… My favorite players are George Springer and Jake Marisnick.” The Astros have kept the fans happy so far.
