    Dusty is an idiot so not much hope. That's why he's never won a WS

    His most productive years weren't in MLB. They were with the Cuban National Team.

    It’s odd to me that people still use Altuve’s height as an insult. The childish is stupidity of it is one thing, but calling him short (or a “midget” as hecklers often yell during games) is really just a reminder of how incredible his career has been and how much harder he’s had to work to get there. He wasn’t gifted with the stature of typical professional athletes. He’s listed as 5’6”, probably 5’5”, and yet he’s been AL MVP, ALCS MVP, 8X All-Star, three batting titles, he’s second all time in post season home runs, and on and on…

    Prediction: Yuli goes through the rest of the regular season and all of the playoffs having never been benched.

    This is truly amazing to witness.

    TBF Yordan has been nearly as bad as Yuli for the month of August.

    Highest OPS+, but 2019 probably was best. But he was an asset at 37, not at 38. Like Ruth at 39.

    Since Brantley and A Diaz went down, we can't go deeper than 8 anymore and that's if Yordan starts hitting again.
    Hensley, Matijevic and Y Diaz are just spectators with a great seat.

    Hensley is an athletic 6'7" IFer so playing him at 1B works for me defensively. Great hitting in spot starts so far. If he can play SS, he can pick at 1B.

    Another night, another bum pitcher the Astros will face. Will there be a better outcome tonight?

    And Yuli goes 0 for 4. 2 fly outs to RF. Grounder to SS. Pop out to second.
