KISSIMMEE - There have been plenty of changes in the Astros organization, for starters, Houston has left the National League for the American League, joining the AL West.
That's home to the Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Angels, Texas Rangers, and Seattle Mariners.
What's this mean? Houston will likely make little to zero noise this year, taking their lumps in their new division. But the players told me at camp, that they're looking forward to this new challenge.
"We got a tough league we are going into now, the AL West is gonna be tough, a lot of great teams in that division, so it will be interesting and tough," said Outfielder JD Martinez.
"It's gonna be nice not having to watch our pitchers hit every day and our fans will be excited with the new uniforms and all the new clubs coming to Minute Maid and we are looking forward to the challenge and going to the new cities and seeing the new ball parks," added Outfielder Justin Maxwell.
