    Man, I shudder to think of what might have become to professional baseball in Houston if that happened...I knew it was super close. I remember being so insanely relieved reading the Chronicle the day after he signed.

    The legacy of second basemen in Houston is just as strong as our legacy of centers...
    Morgan-Biggio-Kent-Altuve is as high performing as Elvin-Moses-Dream-Yao-Sengun :)

    He is not in the HoF for one. Kent is not either, but was a closer call.

    Nothing was mentioned about having to be in the HOF. "The legacy of second basemen in Houston".

    Bill Doran surely belongs on any list of Astros second basemen. Period

    He was my favorite player for a few years when I was a kid. Loved the way he played.

    No mention of Kaz Matsui.
    I can't fissure out how he missed the cut.
