Houston Astros To Open 2013 Season At Home Against Texas Rangers

If you're wondering how the Astros are going to do in the American League West Division next season, the first impression will come at Minute Maid Park in the season opener against the Texas Rangers.

The Dallas Morning News reported this over the weekend and Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle confirmed the report. As Levine noted, it will be the Astros 27th time opening the season at home in their 32-year history.

This makes perfect sense to me. Why prolong this move to the AL West any longer? Why wait until the second or third week of the season before the Astros are formally welcomed by another opponent into the league and division?

We won't.

Good thing about all of this is that however the transition goes next season, it'd be hard for the Stros first season in the American League to be any worse than their last one in the National League.
