Houston Matters

What Can the Astros Do to Compete with the Red Sox Going Forward?

Jesus Ortiz of La Vida Baseball breaks down the World Series and says the Astros are in good shape to contend for several more years.

Boston Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez holds the championship trophy after Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday, Oct. 28, in Los Angeles.

The World Series ended last night with the Boston Red Sox defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5, to take the series 4-1.

Now, with the season over, what can the Astros do to get back to baseball’s promised land and to compete with the Red Sox going forward? 

Jesus Ortiz is a senior editor for La Vida Baseball and a former Astros beat writer. In the audio above, he tells Houston Matters host Craig Cohen he thinks the Astros are in good shape to contend for several more years.

And Ortiz discusses the historic win by Boston manager (and former Astros coach) Alex Cora, who became the first Puerto Rican to manage a team to a World Series title.
