With seven games to go in the regular season and the AL West Division long since cinched up, you might think that the Houston Astros have little to play for these days.
You’d be mistaken.
The Astros are still hot in pursuit of the Cleveland Indians for home field advantage throughout the playoffs. That honor will go to the team with the best overall record when all’s said and done. As of this writing, Houston sits 2.5 games behind Cleveland in the race to the top.
