Good news, Astros fans, the 2012 season is almost over. If you haven't already started looking forward to next season, you can soon.
It is no secret the Astros are rebuilding and will be looking for a new manager to lead them as they head to the American League next season.
Whoever gets the nod to manage the Astros will be facing probably the toughest challenge in Major League Baseball. If he is going to be successful, he will need these five players to step up in 2013.
