Would like to get Alvarez in the field, Tucker or Straw in CF and Yuli out of the lineup.


Sorry, but I have to laugh. Pining for White all season but ready to dump Yuli?

Why are so many putting Bregman in front of Altuve?

I'd probably swap them, and put Alvarez 5th, Correa 6th behind Brantley.


They'll never do it but I'd go...

1. Altuve
2. Bregman
3. Springer
4. Brantley
5. Correa
6. Alvarez
7. Chirinos
8. Reddick
9. Gurriel

Don't you do it Yuli

Some of you guys don't have a lot of reading comprehension. I'm not pining for White, just saying we shouldn't give up with no return. If Yordan keeps hitting clearly he has to go.

Take a look at the numbers, you'll see Yuli is not much better than White. This is already been discussed ad nauseam.

As good as they've been since putting springer in the lead off spot it still surprises to see all the internet managers who'd hit him elsewhere.

Yuli does not hit well enough to be in this lineup when we're healthy unless he's the only option we have at 1b.

I'd rather have Diaz in there.

You've said over and over that White was going to be a productive mlb player.
Harry Dunne
How long do you want to ignore this user?
And I still think that, but that's not pining over him. That's just agreeing with what everybody in this organization still thinks.

Also a big difference between a "productive major league player" and what we have, which is one of the best lineups in history when healthy. Right now he's overweight and can't play the field and you're out of your mind if you sacrifice Yordan's development for him.

That's probably not far off what you think but it's always easier to make fat jokes than to actually read.

Josh James nibbling at guys with 2 strikes and a 4 run lead.

James doing James things.

27 pitches to get 2 outs

Having to watch O's broadcast and Jim Palmer is their color analyst. He was losing his mind with James toying around with offspeed stuff with a 4 run lead and needs 1 more out.

Said he still has that starter mentality and thinks he needs to use all 4 pitches instead of ending the game

xwOBA - .309

He's clearly better across the board, but he's not exactly lighting it up.

Since you accuse me of not reading, I'll try to recap your position and my comment that reignited this topic.

Yes, you have been consistent that Tyler shouldn't be dropped for nothing, and that he and Yuli have been (or will be) similarly productive. Also, I believe you've stated (paraphrasing) that due to his increasing age Yuli is less valuable than Tyler, at similar production. Then in your lineup you leave Yuli out.

My comment was more about how I perceived your willingness to be patient with Tyler so far this season, but instantly ready to remove Yuli.

Just struck me as a little funny. Don't mean to start a real argument.

Will we ever get healthy?
Harry Dunne
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Yeah, that about sums it up.

I think everyone is pretty tired of rehashing this argument, myself included. I am officially retiring as White's public defender.

Go Yordan, Go Stros.
