    Yea, Carter caused the Correa injury. He actually tried to screw him up twice, but didn't get him fully the first time

    Why this guy is still on the team is beyond me

    In a game where the Astros had a 15 run lead in the 9th no less.

    Because you'd rather a scrub like Carter be risking injury than somebody valuable.

    We agree here. It was very dumb throwing to second and winning by 15!!!! Yankees were mad at Gomez for making an out and been mad at himself but a guy throwing to second instead of stepping in the base? That was very dumb by a mediocre player that has no business on being on the team.

    Charlie Pallilo's theory is the team doesn't want to risk Carter helping a foe after his release.

    He definitely shouldn't be playing as much as he is.

    _____

    Altuve has reached base all 24 games he's play in this month.
