It's amazing the NL Central could have three playoff teams despite losing a lot of wins when the Astros moved to the AL West. Bo Porter's punching bags haven't had back-to-back wins since a four-game winning streak June 12-16, losing after each of their last 11 victories. If the Astros continue at their .239 winning percentage over a 46-game stretch through Sunday, they'll end the season 48-114. It's almost a given they will have the first draft pick for a third straight season next June.
