The 2017 Astros were one of the greatest sports stories of modern baseball. They went from losing 400 games in 4 years to winning the crown! Great achievement!
Over the years. the Astros had other post seasons teams:
They lost to the Phillies in the '80 NLCS. Game 5 was fantastic!
They played one of the best NLCS in '86 when they lost to the Mets. Game 6 was amazing!
They lost a heartbreak to the Cardinals in '04.
Add to this the losses to the Braves in '97 and '99 and to the Padres in '98.
It was different in 2005: They won the NL pennant.
Overall, congratulations to the Astros. They were the baseball story of 2017.
