    If you could smush them together at the plate and magically give them minor-league glove skills, they could maybe be a tolerable DH.

    More evidence that Castro shouldn't be allowed to swing

    I don't mind Castro as a 9 hitter vs righties. But I'd rather have Jake or even Tucker in the DH slot and Gattis catching than Castro vs a lefty.

    Altuve is better at hitting baseballs than I am at tying my shoes

    There's really not much you can say about it at this point. The guy is better at everything than we are.

    Glad he's attacking the ball.
    He simply was in a slump and maybe a couple butterflys.

    He won't be back to the minors

    similar to our play a few days ago, the glove bent on that initial tag--I think it was made. Def not enough to overturn

    I don't fault Altuve either--took a perfect throw to get him.

    Would love to tack another run or two and seal this for musgrove.

    I think it's about time White returns that Range Rover he stupidly bought cause he won't be able to afford it too much longer.
