The seasons of a season

I like to think about the season in groups of 27 games (1/6 of the season) and 54 games (1/3 of the season). The Astros went 22-32 in the 1st 54 games, a pace that would produce 66 wins, about what many on this site (including me) predicted going into the season. I am more optimistic now. The Astros just completed a 28 game stretch that included 2 home stands and 2 road trips, 15 road games, 13 home games. They went 17-11, a playoff making pace. A few weeks back a fan post asked whether the Astros were turning the corner. Since that post Springer has exploded and Singleton has arrived. Last winter I predicted in an exchange with Snake that the Astros would become competitive on Aug 1. I believe they are already. As Snake has said no more AAAA players left on the team. Depth a AAA in case of injury. I am now thinking that Crane's hope for .500 is not crazy. I would actually be disappointed if the Astros only went .500 for the rest of the year. Am I in dreamland? Straighten me out here.
