Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh were the dynamic duo as the ace and near ace of the 2015 Houston Astros:

(1) Keuchel was 20-8 with a 2.48 ERA on the year; McHugh was 19-7 with a 3.89 ERA;

(2) Keuchel’s W/L differential with the Astros over 2014 was 8-1; 8 more wins 1 fewer losses in 2015;

(3) McHugh’s differential with the Astros over 2014 was 8-2; 8 more wins and 2 fewer losses in 2015;

(4) Keuchel started 33 games, completing 3; McHugh started 32, completing none;

(5) McHugh needed only one more starting win and he could have tied Keuchel in starts and also reached the 20 win bar;

(6) Keuchel was the power guy (236 K in 232.0 IP) over McHugh at 171 K in 203.2 IP;

(7) Keuchel gave up 185 hits in 232.0 IP; McHugh surrendered 207 hits in 203.2 IP;

(8) McHugh hit 9 batters in 2015; Keuchel hit only 2;

(9) Keuchel threw 9 wild pitches; McHugh threw only 2;

(10) Keuchel pitched to 911 batters in 2015; McHugh faced 859 batters;

(11) Dallas Keuchel won the 2015 National League Cy Young Award for pitching and also the NL Gold Glove Award for fielding;

(12) No other pitchers on the 2015 Astros roster, starters or relievers, won more than 7 and that closer Luke Gregerson;

(13) The Astros need Keuchel and McHugh to maintain, at least, their productivity from last year in 2016; and,

(14) Double digit win production, at least, from two of the other three 2016 starters would be extremely helpful to the club’s goal of winning everything.
