  1. But if he can help the team a full month longer this year, it may get them in the playoffs... if you dont promote him you might be shutting the window on this season, so getting 1 more year at the end (when you may not even be competitive) may not lengthen your window at all. Also this assumes he leaves at a FA his first shot with no replacement.Teams are going over board with "control", they are losing focus on the goal of winning games. This team isn't the Twins, they have a shot this year. I completely agree, but its reality, so I as a fantasy player I try to focus on what is as opposed t

  3. Add another 4 hits today In 46 games since being called up to A+, he's hitting .341/.398/.511 with 19 SB. Remember, this is a 20-year-old SS. The only downside is... he's only 8-for-16 in SB attempts so far this year. In comparison, last year he was 82-for-99 in SB attempts.

  5. "As of this writing, Astros designated hitters are not making good on their positional title, batting a combined .195/.268/.345. Their first baseman are not doing much better, hitting .204/.259/.408. These offense-first positions have generated 14 runs, 7 home runs, and 21 RBI in 205 PA for the Astros. And, believe it or not, these numbers may actually diminish the dismal production the team has received. Tyler White hit .667 with 3 HR and 9 RBI in his first five games; since then, he's batting .125/.209/.243 with 2 HR and 5 RBI - that's a twenty game stretch of well below replacement-level pr

  6. The argument that that I've heard of the Astros not needing hitting because pitching is bad is flawed. If you're pitching is bad, wouldn't it mean you need to score more runs to win? You try to improve at all times no matter how good you are hitting, pitching, defense etc. There is no doubt he is an upgrade. Hopefully it won't be long,
