    Tucker is not winning over many people in RR. There are issues. Trade him for arms.

    He grounded out to SS a couple of games ago, my brother was behind home plate, and he basically walked about 8 feet down the line and watched the play, somebody in the dugout, no idea who, screamed RUN YOU SON OF A BITCH

    I'd like to win a WS this year. Trade Tucker... if it gets Thor, Bauer, Mad Bum... and worry about next year next year...

    How hard is it to replace a corner outfielder?

    Tucker is only 21, let’s not forget. The lack of a fire in the belly to be great that some have insinuated is concerning however. We as fans don’t really know what’s going on though. In Luhnow I trust.

    Josh Reddick and George Springer demand answers.

    I'll do it for Whitley... he has the Tim Redding / Frances Martes vibe... I hope I am wrong though.

    Unlike most of you, The Astros think long term. After 2020,....The Astros can lose Springer, Brantley, and Reddick. What happens then? That's why Tucker isn't going anywhere. Getting a 4th or 5th starter is not as important than having a big time replacement bat.

    You're assuming Tucker is a "big time replacement bat".

    It was someone that grew up watching Biggio. I'll never forget the high pop up that was dropped and Biggio was practically standing on second when the infield picked it up.

    "played the game the RIGHT way", as he never was shy about saying about himself.

    You're assuming adding MadBum means guaranteed championship. We are all making assumptions and guesses here.

    Would be a real turn-off, but he backed it up, and he did it for the Astros. You're allowed to be a little smug if you're an all-time great 2B, I guess.

    Exactly. Lunhow prefers the team to be contenders for the next 7 years, rather than being the favorites for just the next two.

    Who ever said anything about "guaranteed"?

    It would certainly increase their chances.
