Brian, this is a great analysis of the Astros on your TAG’S, sure show what they did or did not do, this shows that  our man Jose  Altuve was the best hustler on the team, we need more of this !!!                                         Ralph


Some of the stats don’t quite add up – 55 wins for the year but 4 runs or more (40) plus 3 runs or less (14) doesn’t equal 55. Also Outhit (17 & 33) and equal hits (4), hitting a home run (45) plus not hitting (11).
Does different batting orders include the pitcher?

Wow, good job on compiling all of the numbers. Some of the numbers are surprising, others are not. Jose Altuve definitely blossomed. Is it too soon to say I’m already looking forward to 2013?🙂
