The Houston Astros' starting pitching continues to be fantastic, and they're also getting a spark on offense from Tony Kemp. However, the Astros are about to find out how good the team really is this year after they finish their series with the Indians and then face-off against the Yankees and Red Sox. Ken Giles has been pitching well, but we'll see how he does in high-pressure situations against New York and Boston. If he falls apart again, the Astros should be looking to add a closer before the deadline.
