The Houston Astros are one of 30 teams hoping to take home the 2023 World Series Title.
The only difference between Houston and any other team right now is that the Astros have a leg up on “the field.” As they go for their seventh straight ALCS appearance, they enter the 2023 campaign as heavy favorites to win the AL West and the number one ranked team on several Power Rankings. This is no doubt due to their rotation, bullpen, and lineup coming back stronger than ever, despite the losses of Yuli Gurriel and Justin Verlander.
