    Good! White has a chance to be a very good MLB hitter, but needs to go down and play everyday right now

    Had to be done. The next 1B that should be called up from AAA has to be Reed.

    When the "professional hitter" stops hitting, gotta go. :p

    Oh, it started so well! You were hitting, people were giving you nicknames, they were going to games in shark costumes, then it all came crashing back down to earth.

    When they showed other Astros rookies that had similar hot starts to White (unknown guys like Josh Anderson, J.R. Towels, James Mouton...), I gotta admit I had my concerns.

    White can be a productive hitter... but he has some serious things to work on.

    He did not looked good, definitely Reed is going to take first base and not White.

    Yep. Needs to keep his elbows in, he had no chance to hit anything on the outer 6" of the plate.

    And he just looked totally lost up there lately

    Wonder if hitting all the HR's early had a negative affect. I know that sounds dumb, but he came in not known as a big power guy, but a guy who would make good contact and have a good approach. Then the year starts and it's bomb bomb bomb....maybe he started thinking "man I could hit 25 HRs" and changed approach some

    As for Luke being back, this is really the first time since he was demoted that the entire pen is plenty rested and ready to go. Will be interesting to see how Hinch uses them without having to worry about who is available and who isn't

    Of course would be better to have a 6 run lead late and not have to worry about it

    He was trying to pull everything, and that is absolutely not his game.

    Yea if he could just hit .280 with some walks, doubles and a few dingers he could help this lineup a bunch

    Hope we see him again later in the year with a better approach
