Can anyone hit at home?

Not really, no.

WRC Plus Home and Road

Only Astros who seem to have it together at home are Reddick and Fisher. I won’t call Jake Marisnick’s 61 WRC+ at home “having it together” though it is better than his -11 on the road.

So, with all those players not hitting at home, no wonder we have arguably the worse offense in baseball when we play at Minute Maid (WRC+ really punishes the Rockies, for example. Their home wOBA is better than ours but the park effects correction makes our WRC+ look better)

Now this is 20 home games out of 81. I’m … somewhat confident they get it together in Houston at some point. The offense is clearly capable of doing well. Maybe they should just start closing the roof all the time…
