Astros Open Forum: What are the highlights of the 2019 season?

We’re going to make a top ten list based on your suggestions.

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

This Astros team will be remembered as a legend. We won’t know for many years how many Hall of Famers are currently playing on it, but I dare say, when it’s all said and done, there won’t be many other rosters in history with more.

What are the highlights of the 2019 season? List one or more of your favorite moments in this, the most successful regular season in Astros history.

I want to encourage you to remember events from the first half of the season. Don’t indulge in recency bias. To help you I am going to take these recent events off the table for discussion, although they may make the Top Ten ultimately.

  1. Astros clinch on three Springer dingers
  2. Verlander no-hitter. Where the Toro?
  3. Four pitcher no-hitter.
  4. Alvarez goes triple decker.

OK, scour your memory for great Astros events in April, May, June, July, and let’s discuss them. Don’t forget decisive pitching performances and defensive plays.

Go for it.
