Don't be surprised when you see a different Alex Bregman this year

The word from Astros spring training before news of the season being delayed was that Alex Bregman was showing a new level of focus for the upcoming season.

ESPN 97.5's A.J. Hoffman, Joel Blank, and Raheel Ramzanali weigh in on Bregman's reported change in demeanor, and if that will impact his performance this year.

Thursday on Around The Horn, Tony Reali, Frank Isola, Sarah Spain and Woody Paige discuss if former Astros manager A.J. Hinch and GM Jeff Luhnow have truly served their punishments if they are allowed to return next season even if no games are played in 2020.

First, we have no idea what the 2020 season will look like at this point, so there's no reason to complain about their punishments because MLB's 2020 season could still take place. Second, both Hinch and Luhnow were fired. MLB handed down the suspensions, if you have an issue with their punishments, then go after commissioner Rob Manfred.

Should this really be an Astros story?
