All these reactionary takes at such a small sample - It's a long season!

He's not going to finish the year with a 400 OBP and he's going to hit some HR. He's probably going to end up being more of the 20 HR, 750-800 OPS type of guy he has been over the course of his career.

"Tyler White sucks" takes are going to age about as well as they did last year.

I think White over performed last year. I doubt he'll match it, but I agree he's not terrible. He gets on base well enough. He has a little power. He'll probably be sub .800 OPS, but still be decent. I hope we could get more from the DH spot. It's one of the few areas where there is room to improve significantly.

White is good enough to keep his spot. He's not anywhere near an everyday player so it's good the Astros like to move the DH around to give guys a breather in the field. White isn't a position player at any spot on the field. But even though he wasn't hitting the ball he was seeing lots of pitches which speaks to his ability as a hitter. All that being said, he's keeping the spot warm for Alvarez.

Its pretty dumb to pull Miley after the night he ended up having. He had 1 more inning left in him

Hector looks awful

We are really missing a key 7th inning reliable pitcher

I wouldn't say awful. The pitch he threw Buxton was a great pitch that he just stuck his bat out and poked it through the shift.

I don't think Rodon looked that bad.

C'mon Jake. Score a run and put Hector in line for that W he so richly deserves!

Maybe so, but there were only 34 guys in the entire AL last year with enough ABs to qualify that had an .800 OPS, so maybe .800 is a little better than you think it is. George had a .780 OPS!

Just think about that - White's career OPS is about the same as George Springer's 2018 season.

Good sac fly and great base running by George.

That was some speed coming home. An on target throw wouldn't have gotten him.

Rondon gonna get Miley's W. No justice.

Miley could have not given up 3 in the first as well. Not completely on Rondon.

Nice stroke by Brantley right there.
