    We are not worthy.

    Astros are in trouble. Doesn't mean they can't turn it around but there needs to be life.

    I'm about ready for Gomez to be benched, Reed to come up, Tucker to LF, White to DH.

    Overreaction, maybe.

    Gomez at the plate is not much better than Castro

    Till he breaks out of his slump or we're 20 games out. It's a first one to blink kinda deal. Nobody likes to admit they were wrong. Astros are 1-0 with Marisnick starting CF. Just saying.

    Good! Wait, no, not good!

    But if they keep stinking up the joint, then maybe they'll keep their prospects for a change instead of trading them away for "quick fixes".

    Maybe they weren't really just one power bullpen arm away.

    They benched him several times down the stretch last year

    So why would you think they absutely would not this year?

    He has been really bad, but as someone mentioned earlier a baseball team isn't going to make rash and quick decisions on guys like fans will

    Personally, I would tell him for every time you swing and fall down, you sit a game. He has skills, he is just out of control. This team has zero discipline, Gomez is probably the worst but he isn't alone

    Yea I was laughing today reading the minor league thread

    People want to give up on Valbuena and Gattis and Gomez

    And want Reed here because his slow start is "just a small sample size"
