It seems like a very short time ago the Houston Astros opened their regular season, and over the course of the past couple of months, it seems like that season never really gained any traction in earnest.

The Major League Baseball season is usually a marathon. It typically lasts long enough for teams to work out problems, nurse injuries to key players, bring new players up to speed and so on. This MLB season, started late and cut down by two-thirds because of the COVID-19 pandemic, has been more like a sprint — the Astros pretty much tripped over their own shoelaces right out of the blocks.
