    WWWW

    But Rangers win all theirs as well and it doesnt matter. And it won't matter until we can beat them directly and take games from them that way. Need to start watching other wildcard teams...

    Gomer should be DH if he just has to be in the lineup.

    Does Altuve have enough fingers/fingernails to sit on the bench for a whole game?

    Hinch needs to save Altuve from himself and play him.

    Agreed. Good hustle last night but if he's hurt or sick or whatever I don't get why marisnick is in left. He's done everything to deserve an everyday shot at cf for the Astros.

    Couple contact hitters to setup power hitters. What an imaginative plan....

    That is not a major league caliber lineup

    Altuve has a nice consecutive game streak. Hopefully A.J. Gump finds a way for Jose to play tonight

    via Root
    Through May 22: 17-28(.378) &mdash; Second worst in AL
    May 23-July 24: 37-16(.698) &mdash; Best in MLB
    Since July 25: 3-10(.231) &mdash; Worst in MLB

    Crazy to think for 2 full months the Astros could play the best ball in the entire majors and still see themselves well out of the division race, and barely hanging on to the wild card race.

    If they dont tag Duffey for at least 4 runs, then they should just pack it up and call it a season.

    Duffy allows major league hitters to average a .879 OPS against him. The one catch tonight... There's probably only 2 out of 9 proven hitters in the lineup.
