The Rangers have won three of their last four in Houston after a 1–0 win behind Cole Hamels and the bullpen on Friday night.
Hamels is one of four guys with at least one Win Above Replacement on the roster so far. That list is led by Delino DeShields Jr., who hit the DL for a couple of weeks already, and Bartolo Colon, who is turning 45 years old.
Joey Gallo and Nomar Mazara are a legit power combination in the middle of the lineup, though. Mazara is the better overall hitter with a whole lot more potential to get better from here but Gallo does have 12 of the 22 combined homers between the two of them.
Together, they slug about .500.
The Astros are doing fine at 24–16 but their pythagorean expectation suggests they should be five games better than that.
Houston has won a ton of blowouts and lost mostly all close games. It’s pitching is fantastic and lineup is as potent as they come. They and the Yankees are easily the two best teams in baseball right now.
Dallas Keuchel is quickly getting overlooked in a rotation that has been on fire between Verlander, Charlie Morton and Gerrit Cole. As the only left-hander, Keuchel is an important change of pace, though. Houston is only at its best when he is pitching at a Cy Young level.
