The Houston Astros and Starling Mars are doing their best to heat the off-season hot stove and fuel some MLB rumors

Less than a month after losing the World Series to the Atlanta Braves, the Houston Astros are preparing to make some free agency moves.

One of the biggest questions surrounding the Astros towards the end of their World Series run was how the team would be moving forward. One of the narratives linked to Houston was that this could be the end of the road for a team that first won the World Series in 2017 and has consistently fought over the years thereafter.

It seems that despite all the outside noise surrounding the Astros, the team has no interest in going quietly into the night.

MLB Rumors: Astros Meets Starling Mars

According to Jon Heyman, the Astro have made contact and already have an encounter with Starling Mars.

“Astros met the agents of the free agent midfielder Starling Marte. It looks like a potential solution, but there is competition, including the Phillies, Mets, Yanks, Marlins and others, ”Heyman said.

Fierce competition is something to watch out for when it comes to the Mars landing in Houston. He’s a fantastic all-rounder for the Astros, as he brings award-winning defense to the field and adds another big bat to the lineup, which is why he’ll likely get the top dollar in free agency. Whether or not the Astros will be banned from its market remains to be seen, especially considering rival Yankees contenders are concerned.

New York’s incentive to add Mars goes beyond just adding his talent to their clubhouse, it would also prevent Houston from being able to use it against them in next season’s postseason.
