Astros: Which players are on franchise’s Mount Rushmore?

We’re feeling nostalgic here at Climbing Tal’s Hill, and not just because our namesake has been relegated to the past. With baseball on hold, it’s a good opportunity to look back on the history of the Houston Astros franchise.

The idea crossed my mind as to which players would be on an Astros version of Mount Rushmore. Now the criteria for this is fairly simple — there are four spots available, and the players should be the four most important or most impactful players in the history of the team. How that exactly is judged is a little more complicated.
