    Don't care much about the applecart. Correa is a 4 hole 5 hole hitter. However, I am preferential to letting the first few reps come from the 8-9 hole just to get back in the grove with limited pressure. Then hand it to him. He already earned that spot in the lineup. The lineup is the best I've ever seen for the Astros. It's one of the best all time lineups ever in MLB if u ask me. We have 4 MVP caliber bats felled by lightning, 2 All Star chunks of wood, 2 almost all star barrels, and only one incompetent in Chirinos who some of you seem to love anyway. It's our best lineup ever.

    Chirinos prob needs rest. He's on pace to play his most games ever and he's only played 100+ once --- last season. His stat sheet seems very unique. His rookie season didn't happen until age 27, he's missed a full year, and his highest GP seasons are all occurring twilight career.

    Unfortunately, Stassi is the only option to enable rest, but Chirinos probably needs a 2-game/week pace for a month to regain his powers.

    Astros will pay one way or another. Either directly by resigning Cole, or, with prospects like we're about to do because no Morton.
