The weekend is here, and we are geared up to keep moving forward with the hot streak. Thursday, I had a game circled between the Chicago Fire and Columbus Crew. As the game approached, I started having second thoughts and realized that the Over was somewhat in doubt with some of the things I read from the teams training. The match started off really slow with the first half having only 2 shots on goal for Columbus, while the Fire did nothing. Thee intermission saw it deadlocked at 0-0 and the game would end in a 1-1 draw.

I try to express the importance of picking your spots and treating it as a long-term investment. Yes, I know the action junkie that lies inside us wants to step out on a Thursday night and hit the town, but sometimes your best play is NO play. Consider yesterday a win and a lesson.

As the Astros prepare to play their first game of spring training against the Nationals this Saturday, we're starting to see reports about how the players approached the offseason, and what tweaks they made to improve in the 2024 season.

Cristian Javier is a player Astros fans are hoping bounces back this year, as his ERA jumped from 2.54 in 2022 to 4.56 in 2023. Workload was thought to be one of the main factors causing his regression, he dealt with a dead arm last season and threw more innings than ever before (162).

Another explanation could be the pitch clock. This was another new element all pitchers had to deal with last year, and that also likely played a role in his struggles.

But according to The Athletic's Chandler Rome, Javier believes he was carrying some extra weight last season. Add that to some mechanical issues he was experiencing, and his struggles in 2023 make a lot more sense. And to be fair, he wouldn't be the first person to get a little fat and happy after winning a World Series.

In an effort to get back on track in 2024, Javier said he lost around 15 pounds this offseason. With the pitch clock not going anywhere, pitchers need to be in better cardiac shape than ever before.

Hopefully this modification helps Javier return to form and put up jaw-dropping numbers like he did in 2022. This rotation needs Javier to be the dominate pitcher we all know he's capable of being. With Justin Verlander behind schedule and Framber Valdez trying to bounce back from his own down year, Houston will depend on Javier like never before.

The Astros are certainly counting on it after giving him a 5-year, $64 million contract last season. Javier will definitely be a player to watch this spring.
