HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Astros' last season in the National League was a forgettable one.
The Astros said goodbye to the senior circuit with a whimper, posting their second straight 100-loss season before moving to the American League West for 2013.
Houston finished with the worst record in the majors for the second year and its 55-107 mark is the worst in franchise history, one game below last year's finish, in Jim Crane's first season as owner.
This group of Astros never really had a chance after the few remaining veterans were jettisoned before the trade deadline and they were forced to play with a roster comprised of just one player who made more than $1 million.
