Is it possible to do an entire podcast episode about Astros first basemen? You bet it is. Mark and Andy, hosts of the funniest baseball statistics podcast ever, investigate the history of Astros first-sackers, from Bagwell to Watson. Included is a discussion of the top 5 first basemen, the players who were just below that level, and some notable names that you may not remember even having played first base for the Astros, all through the lens of advanced (and not-so-advanced) statistics. The episode concludes with a game of Roll The Stat, in which your hosts guess career OPS totals for players they have discussed. You will undoubtedly know more than you ever wanted to know about the men who played the position in Houston.
