10 runs with 3 mvp caliber players on the IL, is that good?


The real question is: Are the Astros this good or does our division just suck as bad as the AL Central?


I think we are really good, but probably not as good as being able to win this many with all of these replacements so consistently.

I will say we had a damn good record that first month playing no teams under .500, the pitching off to a bit of a rocky start, and the bats not firing at the same time.


With this roster right now, the Astros have a good enough roster to play .500 ball against average competition. With the soft schedule, I think they are doing better than expected.

I think when healthy, the Astros are the best in the league. I


I agree with you. I was thinking more of the when healthy team, but yes, even this roster could probably play .500 ball. That's just sick when half the line up consists of players just called up from AAA

Is this 2 nights in a row for Devo?

I think at this point, with the lead in the division, you rest Altuve as long as possible to make sure that surgically repaired knee is truly ok.

Guduan could get the win for blowing it if we pull it out.... Useless stat

If Yuil could have been ready, Spiderman would have had a double play!

What has gotten into Reddick this year?

You want him on that wall. You need him on that wall.

It's so cool knowing he's wearing that Spider-Man shirt under the jersey.

No extra innings if we play the Ms ever. Vogelbach and Tyler sumo it out after we end 9.

Reddick better get a gold glove this year. Marisnick should at least get an asterisk mention. Both dudes have been so clutch so many times.

Trade Kemp and White for A ball lottery picks. Keep Straw (unique weapon) and Fisher (very high upside). Drop one reliever and call up Yordan or Tucker.

I'm not sure how much trade value Yuli would fetch, but that wouldn't be too surprising.

Is Alvarez any good defensively at first?

I know we are only two months in, but this season is so much more fun to watch than last season. The last time I enjoyed watching them this much in the regular season was the first half of 2017 -- before they struggled in August.

I'm starting to wonder about Yuli...and how safe his spot is.

his brother plays in Toronto...thinking ahead to a Stroman deal

I would assume you would have a lot of Diaz at first along with someone else filling in. Alvarez could DH and Fisher could pick up spot starts in the outfield.

I would be okay with trying out MB at first.

Straw will start at SS as we transition Correa to 1st.. for the 12 games he plays before getting injured again. Then we call up AJ Reed to fill the fat guy role.

I want to see Straw try to catch Kemp on the bases.

I was thinking about Yuli as well

But not sure we have anyone that can play first every day that deserves to hit every day

But I found this, would be interesting

Definitely the AAA Astros. Rodgers into pitch and the ball finally found Straw!

Have been having very similar thoughts. Feels much more like the 2017 team.
