The Astros are a bad baseball team, a team that many believed could be the first team since the 1962 Mets to lose 120 games.
The Marlins are also a bad baseball team, a team that didn't get quite the same doomsday projections that the Astros did, but given their 2-11 start, it seems they were wildly short-changed in that regard.
But none of this should come as a shock to anyone. Bad teams being bad is what we expect and quibbling over who is worse would be mean-spirited and morbid. We here at The Outside Corner would never stoop to that level, at least not until we run into a slow news day, instead we shall try and bring a little hope to these hopeless franchises by determining which team actually has a real shot at a bright, or at least moderately well-lit, future.
To solve this clearly important and controversial quandry, we take to the debate floor with the esteemed Garrett Wilson taking up for the Astros and Joe Lucia defending the Marlins.
