Astros vs. Cardinals
This game is sadly one of the major casualties of realignment in MLB. From 1996 to 2006, these two teams won 10 of 11 NL Central titles, and met in the NLCS twice. During that span the Astros and Cardinals combined for three World Series appearances, and were often 1 and 2 in the NL Central. With the Astros moving to the AL West, this series is now only on the schedule for interleague play. The games are still exciting, but not quite the same.
The Lone Star Series was first played in 2001 as an annual interleague matchup and has evolved into a divisional rivalry with the Astros moving to the AL West. The winner of the series is awarded the “Silver Boot” which is one of the best rivalry trophies in MLB. These two teams have shared more than the baseball hearts in Texas, some of both clubs most iconic players have played for Rangers and the Astros, including Nolan Ryan, Lance Berkman and Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez.
Astros vs. Cubs
These former NL Central rivals produced some of the best games over the last two decades. For years this rivalry was known for a few things, intensity, and pitching. With names like Carlos Zambrano, Roy Oswalt, Kerry Wood, and Andy Pettitte pitching some of the best games of their career in this matchup. Although no longer a divisional rivalry, this is still one of the most exciting matchups whenever it appears on the interleague schedule.
