2010 Houston Astros Preview

Looks like it will be another long season for the Astros.

Roy Oswalt returns to lead a so-so pitching staff that will really need some of their young pitchers to step up. They dumped some aging pitchers in the off season and also acquired Brandon Lyon from Detroit to be their new closer.

Lance Berkman starts the season on the DL and is hoping to return about a week into the season. This team struggled to score runs last year and losing Miguel Tejada won't help things.

I don't see the Astros being competitive in the division this year.

Here are some more in depth Astros previews from around the web -
