Debate 2016: Who should be the Astros' 1st baseman?

The top candidates gather together on one stage for the first debate of the season.

Astros 40 in 40: Collin McHugh

The Doctor went from waiver wire signing to a top of the rotation starter and never looked back.

What would an extension for Keuchel look like?

Attempting to estimate a fair price for our resident ace.

Astros 40 in 40: Carlos Correa

You know, it's actually hard to write about this guy now. At some point, his all-encompassing incredible-ness surpassed the English language's ability to relate it.

Astros 40 in 40: Lance McCullers

Continuing our series on the Astros' 40-man roster, the Crawfish Boxes extolls the virtues of right-handed starting pitcher Lance McCullers.

Jason Martin: Better prospect than you realize?

One of the tougher prospects to grade in the Astros minor leagues, Martin may not be what you thought he was going to be, but that doesn't mean he isn't good.

Astros 40 in 40: Ken Giles

"Hundred Mile Giles" moves South.

Astros Spring Spotlight: Tyler Heineman

Tyler Heineman has been a consistent performer in his march up the Astros' minor league ranks, but will his solid-if-not-spectacular profile prevent him from making the big league squad in 2016?

Astros 40 in 40: Jake Marisnick

Primarily a pinch runner and replacement outfielder, Marisnick should serve as a valuable insurance policy and much needed depth for the stretch run.

Astros Spotlight: Tyler White

Tyler White has been underdog throughout his minor league career, but his hit tool may carry him to the majors.

40 in 40: Jason Castro

After becoming an all star in 2013 Castro looks for another strong season before free agency after the 2016 season.

Astros 40 in 40: Josh Fields

Let's look at last year's fastball king of the bullpen. He's probably better than you probably think he is. Probably.

Astros Minor League Spotlight: Wandy Rodriguez

Tell a friend; Wandy's back! Hey, it might not be for long, maybe he won't be any good anymore, but this will be fun, right?

Astros 40 in 40: Tony Sipp

Always keep it platoon-neutral

Astros 40 in 40: Luke Gregerson

To close or not to close, that is the question.

Astros Minor League Spotlight: CF Andrew Aplin

Astros center field prospect Andrew Aplin is blocked, but ready for the major leagues nonetheless.

Astros 40 in 40: Carlos Gomez

A polarizing player tries to rebound in 2016.

Astros Spring Training Spotlight: Danny Reynolds

The Astros wanted more fire and thunder in their bullpen, so they went out and got Ken Giles. But they also picked up another arm who might one day put some fear into Major League hitter's hearts, too.

Mike Fiers and the no-hitter time forgot

Houston's unassuming ace.

Astros 40 in 40: Will Harris

Another arm in a suddenly crowded bullpen.

Astros 40 in 40: Max Stassi

Jason Castro has done a solid enough job defensively behind the plate, but 2016 may be his final year with the Astros. Max Stassi has a chance to impress enough people to take his spot in 2017, but can he hit?

Astros 40 In 40: Preston Tucker, Outfielder

Bam Bam, the "Bad Body" Bruiser, is in search of consistent playing time in 2016

This stream has:

Astros 40 in 40

The Crawfish Boxes staff profiles the members of the Astros 40-man roster before the 2016 season.

Astros 40 in 40: Pat Neshek

A bullpen weapon against right-handed batters.

Astros Spring Training Spotlight: Joe Musgrove

2015 was a long time coming for Joe Musgrove. Finally healthy, he broke out in a big way, and earned a spot on the 40-man roster.

Astros 40 in 40: Doug Fister

Coming off a career-worst year, Doug Fister looks to bounce back in H-Town.

Astros 40 in 40: Asher Wojciechowski

From in the Opening Day rotation to minor league pitching depth.

Astros Spring Training Spotlight: Nolan Fontana

Could Preston Tucker's college teammate in 2012 become Preston Tucker's Major League teammate in 2016?

Astros 40 in 40: Jon Singleton

The First Baseman of Future Past isn't quite done yet. The Astros will give him every opportunity to succeed.

Astros 40 in 40: Brad Peacock

You gotta let him fly!

Astros 40 in 40: Dan Straily

Waiting in the wings if the Astros need rotation help in 2016.

Astros 40 In 40: Matt Duffy

Nine plate appearances in the Major Leagues so far...expect that number to jump exponentially in 2016.
