This picture is worth a thousand words about the A’s and Astros this season. We’ll keep it much shorter than that, though.

The Oakland Athletics are the defending American League West champs. The Houston Astros are AL West newcomers. The A’s are fighting for another division crown. The Astros are fighting to finish the season. The A’s have won 81 games. The Astros have won 47. The A’s lead the series vs. the Astros 13-4.

Nate Freiman is six-foot-eight. Jose Altuve is five-foot-five.  The picture says it all.

Also worth noting: The Astros released Freiman and the A’s claimed him. He is 11 for 26 (.423) with three doubles, three home runs and 11 RBI in 10 games against Houston.
