We continue our series in which we look at how each 2015 playoff team can go about the offseason in order to chase a ring in 2016. For more of an introduction, see the first piece in the series about the Yankees. Here, we will be looking at a team that got bounced in the American League Division Series, the Houston Astros.
Just as a reminder, here are the cutoffs we are looking at:
Last year’s recap:
Lost in American League Division Series in 5 games to the Kansas City Royals.
Total WAR: 46.6
Top 12 WAR: 37.7
Top 16 WAR: 42.4
Part of the benefit of having such a young core is that you don’t actually need to make so many improvements to your roster. You can just watch Carlos Correa develop into a monster and the rest of your team develop the way normal baseball players do. We’ll make some changes here, but the core of this team should, and will, remain intact as it tries to bring the first World Series title to Houston.

Oops! A little to late for that one.
