The Houston Astros are off to a 4-2 start in Spring Training with inter-team contests, signaling a potential strong start to the regular season. But that’s not all there is to know about the Astros this year. In today’s blog post, we will dive into the latest news surrounding Houston’s baseball team and take a peek at what the 2023 season could bring. So, if you’re a die-hard Astros fan or just love following baseball, keep reading to stay in the know.

First, let’s check out some of the recent news related to the Astros. We’ll start with a deep dive into the 2017 cheating scandal that rocked the MLB world and tarnished the Astros’ reputation. The New York Post has published a compelling article exposing the behind-the-scenes details of the scandal, and the comments section on this one is sure to provide some interesting perspectives. In a less controversial story, we’ll also highlight the Astros’ 73-year-young manager, Dusty Baker, who continues to impress with his skills and leadership on and off the field.

Moving on to player news, Astros General Manager Dana Brown is making waves by being the antithesis of his predecessors, bringing a new approach to leadership of the team. Meanwhile, Michael Brantley and the team’s pitch clock chaos have dominated recent headlines. In other AL West news, we’ll check out what’s happening with teams like the Oakland A’s and the LA Angels, including some insider predictions about Shohei Ohtani’s free agency future and top performers this spring.

So, what can we expect for the 2023 season? According to our bold prediction, we may see a larger-than-average number of players without big-league experience near the top of the leagueโ€™s batting average/on-base percentage leaderboards. Why? Well, it turns out that players with multiple years of experience with the pitch clock have a distinct advantage over those who don’t. This could lead to more rookie position players making the All-Star Game than usual, at least until the veterans catch up. Of course, there are always exceptions, and some veterans may adapt to the changes right away.
