    This thread is just for fun so chill if you don’t like my comparisons. Post your own! Perhaps this is just the byproduct of being so bored during the ASG break because we have to watch one of the best Astros regular seasons ever. Anyways, the comparison game got me thinking...

    Alvarez: Carlos Delgado
    Altuve: Pete Rose
    Springer: Dale Murphy
    Bregman: Chipper Jones
    Correa: really hard...almost doesn’t have a comp, somewhere between A-Rod and healthy Tulo
    Reddick: Derek Bell
    Yuli: more versatile Kevin Young
    White: trashcan
    Jake: Darin Erstad

    JV: Ryan
    Cole: Beckett

    Legends bracket:
    Keuchel: Hampton
    Marwin: Zobrist
    CFM: Wainwright

    I've said from the first month that Bregman reminds me of Pedroia

    You're right, he didn't remind of Pedroia... my mistake.

    There's a remedy for a hangover. You just have to learn to not drink so much the night before.

    I wasn't sure how Harden/Paul/Westbrook would be on this team if we had to give up Gordon, but Harden/Westbrook/Gordon is very intriguing

    Fairly to you, he's one of the few who has the eye at the plate, K/BB, like Bregman does, he just doesn't have nearly the pop (or the popups?). And he's not a 3bman. And he's a Masshole.

    LOL, that is why I thought of Pedroia to begin with. Bregman came out with this confidence I've never seen before from a rook. But it showed his mentality when he was something like 1 for 27 to start but he was constantly hitting the ball hard. To many Bregman is a bit of an a-hole outside of Houston I'm sure (and that game winning hit in the world series didn't help much to alleviate that notion :)
