    Cool but how do you put Altuve to bat 8th.

    the better thing is knowing that springer, Lance mcstrikeout, and that correa kid are also potential all stars.

    Nice to see two Astros' logo for that starting lineup. Congrats to Dallas K.

    Not too surprising but according to Keuchel, Springer is truly the heart and soul of the team. Gammons follows up that he would of been an all-star for sure if not for the injury.

    Sigh, get well soon George

    Because it is an all-star team?

    Cain in the 5 spot is very strange. Maybe he just wants to give the top 4 guys more ABs.

    Was thinking the same. And a good logo it is :cool:

    Hinch also referred to Springer as the "heart and soul" during a postgame interview. Club Astros and the homerun celebrations in the dugouts are both his ideas. Love his style and enthusiasm. His slight speech impediment makes me like him more for some reason. He's already my 2nd favorite Astro behind Bagpipes.

    Trout deserves his leadoff spot, he's better and it's his spot with LAA. But Altuve should be 2nd. Maybe the manager doesn't think he takes enough pitches or walks enough. ;)

    With the exception of steals, Donaldson has been a better offensive player than Altuve.

    I'd say Donaldson is clearly better, pretty much the entire team is. But speed usually tops a lineup and Donaldson has never consistently hit #2 until this season. Altuve should switch with him, then Donaldson with Cain.

    It's no biggie though

    Me too!

    Happy for Keuchel though! Too early for #CyKeuchel talk?

    Yost says he will definitely only pitch one inning.

    With World Series home field advantage on the line, as a manager, I want to get my best offensive players as many at bats as possible, especially considering Yost is manager of a team that has a legitimate shot to make the World Series.
