A fantasy draft of Astros throughout franchise history. You pick who came out on top.

The writers here at the Crawfish Boxes conducted a fantasy draft of all Astros to have played for the franchise for at least two full seasons, with the goal of creating the best team possible. Players drafted were drafted based upon their peak seasons in an Astros (or Colt .45) uniform.

Before this simulation tournament begins this weekend, we’d like you to take a look at these rosters, and tell us who you think came out on top!

You can see the results of the draft round by round here: 1-5, 6-10, 11-15.
