Astros manager Bo Porter is going to great lengths to make sure there's good chemistry in the clubhouse. He encouraged the players to bring music into the clubhouse earlier this week, and he's going to start having food delivered to the clubhouse following workouts to encourage the players to hang around and talk.
"You want to make it a place they want to come," Porter said. "I explained to the guys, some of your best lessons of playing baseball are with your teammates after you're done with your workout and you're just sitting around and talking about baseball, sitting around and talking about the day, the game and other teams. You talk about each other's families. You get to know each other. As an organization, we have to provide the atmosphere that helps create that culture."
