    White @ the 7?

    How about swap the 5 & 7?

    Or swap 3 and 7. White needs to hit higher in order.

    Is it just me, or doesn't it seem like when White plays 1B, he bats higher, and when he DH's, he bats lower? He should be higher, Correa lower. Also, I'd play Reddick at CF, Marwin at RF, Kemp at LF with this outfield trio. Please tell me Springer is OK.

    Marwin hitting cleanup? Why?

    CF Tony Kemp
    2B Jose Altuve
    3B Alex Bregman
    SS Carlos Correa
    DH Tyler White
    1B Yuli Gurriel
    LF Marwin Gonzalez
    C Brian McCann
    RF Josh Reddick

    This Should be the Main Lineup

    Kemp excelled at the 9th spot. Not good as a lead off hitter.

    Hinch is spreading out the hot bats. You dont want to group a slumping Correa, Reddick, McCann and Gonzalez together to create a hole. Could also see it as less pressure Correa to hit big and just start getting on base again.

    And spreading out the left handed at bats. Hope the team is rested up and puts forth a better offensive effort than yesterday.

    That's a questionable lineup...so, the Astros will score double digits.

    Guys I just had a crazy thought. The Tampa Bay Rays are 1500/1 to win the World Series according to vegas insider. They are currently 10.5 behind NYY and 7.5 behind Oakland. Here's the thing though, the Rays close the season with the following schedule: Cleveland (2), Oakland (3), @ Texas (3), @ Toronto (4), Yankees (4), Toronto (3). That schedule is incredibly favorable. Not only do they have 7 games head to head with the teams they're chasing, but they have 7 games against Toronto! On top of that, the Yankees have 6 games left with Boston.

    I think I'm going to throw $100 on Tampa to win $150,000 as soon as I can find a line somewhere online. I don't think 1500/1 is accurate at all. With that closing schedule I would think Tampa makes the playoffs and wins it all more than 1 in 1500 times. Of course I'm rooting for the Astros all the way, but might as well throw down on this number.

    Lineup looks fine to me, with Springer getting the day off. That lineup is very capable of crushing tonight.

    Marwin has been ballin for over a month.

    ~1.000 OPS

    Just missed that HR yesterday too.

    Springer and Correa's injuries are affecting the lineup.

    Really, that's all you can say? Tell me why it's such a stupid idea.
