Lo and behold, I have just realized that the Astros are entering their fifth season as a member of the American League West division.

Man, time sure does fly after your favorite team changes leagues and divisions. Hard to believe that five short calendar years ago that the Astros were beginning their final rotation through the National League.

Fast forward to 2017 and the Astros are now in their fifth season in the American League. Like it or not, the franchise has established new rivalries of varying degrees in the AL West.

But where should we rank these newfound rivals? Well, I’m glad you asked!
