The Astros have a better lineup IMO. They have young talented hitters, the Marlins just have a bunch of nobodies and guys who are over the hill.
I mean, Altuve is good (he can really hit), Chris Carter has serious power, I still think Brett Wallace can be a good hitter. Matt Dominguez looks like he might be able to hit a bit, and he's an incredibly defensive 3B. Jason Castro is a good defensive catcher with some power. Not to mention the guys they have in the minors (Jonathan Singleton, Carlos Correa, George Springer, Delino DeShields Jr.)
The Astros have some exciting talent, Singleton could end up being a 35 HR guy, If everything clicks (big if) for Correa then he's basically A-Rod (30 HR potential from a SS - Wow) and DeShields stole a hundred bases last year and hit nearly .300. This could be an extremely exciting team in a few years.
