Houston Astros organization discussion

2017 was a huge success for the World Champions. What happens now?

MLB: World Series-Houston Astros at Los Angeles Dodgers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

I am now working on the Los Angeles Dodgers Top 20 prospects list for 2018. The next team in line is the Houston Astros, to be followed by the Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks, Oakland Athletics, and the Washington Nationals.

Use this thread to discuss the Houston Astros organization. Possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:

****2017 was as good as it can get for Houston: 101 wins and a World Championship. What are your expectations for 2018? Do they end up in the post-season again or are they do for a fallback?

****Did you know that Alex Bregman is actually older than Carlos Correa? Have we seen the best from them or can either or both of them actually take a step forward from being already excellent?

****Marwin Gonzalez slashed .303/.377/.530. What’s his slash for 2018?

****What is this team’s biggest weakness and what would you do to address it?

****Give your timeline and strategy for getting prospect Kyle Tucker into the lineup.

****How do you best deploy Colin Moran and J.D. Davis?

****As always, feel free to discuss your sleeper prospects or anything else Astros-oriented.
