Astros-No Bats
Would I be right to say that the Houston Astros only have about two or three player that are actually good hitters and hitting the ball.

2. So why did they win more games after the All Star break
than any other team---- Satan?

3. Schedule
One thing could be their schedule. How hard was their schedule compared to other teams? In addition, even with winning more games after the all-star break they still did not have the best record in the major league and did not have the best record in their division. You must remember that the Astros only got the the playoffs due to the melt down of the Phillies and their loss at the end of the season. So they are not that great of a team.

4. Yes. Its about pitching and defense for them.
Berkman is excellent and Biggio, Ensberg, and Lane have done well at times in the postseason, but when your pitching and defense hold the other team to one run, you dont need much hitting.
