What most Astros fans expected headed into the 2023 season was this. It’s official, Framber Valdez is the Astros opening day starter.
With Justin Verlander making a zillion dollars with the New York Mets now, it was only right that our beloved Framchise get the ball to kick the season off.
Last season, Valdez posted a 17-6 record along with setting a quality start streak record to close the season out. He pitched 201.1 innings, so Astros fans should feel quite confident in our Staff Ace.
Opening day is less than a week away, and I’m not sure I’ll be able to sleep because it feels like Christmas morning. Framber Valdez is the Astros opening day starter.
