    Any list that doesn't feature Bill Doran at all 9 positions is flawed and must be disregarded.

    Si can thank the '93 Rockets for all these microtransaction issues.

    Dang... Wagner's post seasons stats for his career:
    14 games, 11.2 IP, 13 ER, and a 10.03 ERA

    Makes me wonder... All-Time Astros Playoff Team (edited)

    1B - Berkman
    2B - Altuve
    3B - Bregman
    SS - Pena
    LF - Brantley
    CF - Beltran
    RF - Springer
    DH - Alvarez
    UTIL - Gonzalez
    Backup C - McCann
    4OF - Tucker
    MIF - Correa
    CIF - Gurriel

    SP1 - Scott
    SP2 - Oswalt
    SP3 - Ryan
    SP4 - Keuchel
    Spot - Cole
    Long - Verlander
    Mid - Javier
    Mid - Stanek

    Thought about Cole as my set up man... but TOO SOON.

    Correa doesn't even make the team?

    Pena had a hell of a rookie season playoffs, but better than: 18 HR, 59 RBI, .849 OPS in 79 playoff games?

    Coin flip for me... ALCS/WS MVP is really hard to ignore... and Correa has some regression with each stage of the playoffs...
    OPS
    Wild Card 1.017
    DS .985
    CS .810
    WS .724

    I can respect your explanation and your opinion

    To me, In order to put a guy with 13 career games over a player with 79, the youngster must be great AND the veteran bad.

    McCann with his .477 OPS over Ausmus and his .680+ in more games?

    I'll accept that... especially since Garner trusted Ausmus ahead of Bagwell in the 18 inning game...

    Ausmus actually had a surprisingly good playoff career with the Astros.

    (considering he has a reputation of not knowing what a bat is for)
