    If you know a pitcher that can hit the corners on a curveball every pitch, give Click a ring so we can sign the guy.

    :D

    It looks as if Dusty may relegate Meyers to the bench. I am really ready to see an "under new management" sign.

    He stopped being an everyday starter.

    Once Brantley returns, there is only going to be room for one of Chas/Meyers/Siri to play everyday in the field.

    BABIP regression was inevitable. Pitchers are adjusting. He's been over-adjusting with huge changes in his aggression on swing decisions. I think he's probably in a good place right now regarding swinging at strikes and spitting on balls, and good results will come if he keeps up this plate discipline.

    Who would’ve thought that after losing Springer, we would have such a log jam at CF? Myers, McCormick, Siri, Leon?. I think all of them have bright futures in the majors here or elsewhere. Who is it next year? I”m guessing McCormick starting and Siri on the bench.

    Oh no doubt about it

    The bright lights do not intimidate this kid.

    I think he is going to go off throughout these playoffs.

    Kid had a great approach to his ABs. Looked playoff ready. Fit in with the Astros way.

    Also, Lynn is a great matchup for him: kid loves to hit fastballs, Lynn throws only fastballs.
