    I've divided up Astros players into a few categories to see how much the Astros fWAR changed in certain areas over the last year.

    My thoughts
    Pitching was hard to split up like position players, but it is easy to see drop in pitching (injuries, losing JV before trade, and performance) cost the Astros a lot of wins. Getting half that SP fWAR back with better health seems possible for 2024.

    Injuries to position players was pretty bad. I think there is a good chance Astros get about half that fWAR back in 2024.

    Large improvements from returning players and Diaz (didn't include in returning based on small sample in 2022) bode well for 2024 even if Chas and Dubon lose half their gains (I expect Meyers and Diaz to get more PT (i.e., more fWAR) over replacement/below replacement level players).

    Maldy should be gone which will help in fWAR and I expect the other returning starters (Pena, Bregman, Tucker) to be about what they were in 2023.

    I think the "betting on better health" for position players is risky. The position players are getting older, and some injuries should be expected. It does feel they need some better quality depth though. It would be tough to expect Dubon to duplicate his career year turning 30. and they need a 3rd catcher they can trust if Maldy is gone, starts to get injured or they decide Diaz can get more at bats a different position.

    Not sure about Harry Brecheen, but Steve Rogers and Blue Moon Odom sound like super heroes.

    Steve Rogers is Captain America, right?

    Odom's nickname has much more lame origins.
