    Astros are unbeaten against the Cardinals since the hacking scandal. Sweep.

    Need to keep moving Altuve down in order. Don't want to risk him getting max AB's.

    Worth 2, Altuve 3, Correa 4. Let's hope all guys can contribute and drive in runs when they get the opportunity. Correa has had some clutch hits recently but has also failed in several spots throughout the season to drive in runs and get a big inning going. Way too many LOB's on this team. Hopefully LOB City is no more.

    Hinch is a jackass. Keep Altuve 2nd in the order and bat Worth 8th or 9th until he gets going.

    suggest you write a book of the non-jackass moves so that all managers can be smart enough to manage baseball

    Worth is not some young kid that they need to foster his development/psyche.

    This is his 4th or 5th trip up. Put up/shut-up time while they wait for the mythical super-2 status to clear. If he truly has turned the corner, and is a late bloomer, they should get max benefit of batting him as much as possible.

    He hasn't shown anything in the majors that warrants him to bat 2nd in front of Correa and Altuve. His last major league stint wasn't good. I would have batted him 8th in front of the pitcher until he proves otherwise.

    Because the rest of our lineup is so good?

    The rest of the lineup sucks as well (after Correa) and they are slotted where they should be. Just like people said Kemp shouldn't be batting 2nd when he came up, Worth shouldn't either. You cant have it both ways.

    God I hate Hinch. You don't know how bad I hate him.
