Updated:

A new coach will bring a different mindset to Houston. However, the same core lineup of championship caliber players will fill the new manager's lineup card. This is a good team full of good players. The lineup is stacked all the way to the final spot in the batting order. Houston tied with the Dodgers for the best run differential in baseball. There is little doubt that the Astros will navigate to or near the top in that area again.

The question about how big of a run differential they will have will hinge on how well the pitch. They still have a pitching rotation stocked with solid arms. However, gone is one of the top-10 pitchers in baseball. Most teams have problems addressing those kinds of departures. Houston has good arms to the top-level starter they lost. But, any injury to the current rotation could expose the one possible Astros weakness heading into 2020.

Houston Astros FAQ

The starting lineup for the Houston Astros is still loaded with talent, whether they know what pitch is coming or not. The front three is one of the best in league with George Springer, Jose Altuve, and Alex Bregman. This is a tough lineup to get through for left-handed pitching as well.
