Only 1 error for the Astros in the game? Seems low.

Yeoman's work by Harris there after some tough breaks.

So our Rookie slugger who is only an outfielder (even though he is built like a first baseman, on a team that needs a first baseman, for an organization that is weakest at first base) isn't playing in Coors field because the outfield is too big.

I don't get any of that! It seems so obvious. He must play first. In a few years with a few more pounds put on it will be his only position.

Altuve has had 2-3 himself... But the hometown scorer has been giving them a few hits. No reason for Harris to have an ER in that inning.

Top of the order...get 1 or 2 here and we're still right there.

Alvarez is not an option at 1B. It's obvious they have assessed his abilities and be can't do it.

Let it go

Personally I'm starting to think it's ok. He's tearing the covee off the ball and looks very comfortable so filling his plate with learning first may F that up.

My first game here. Obviously not unexpected, but it is amazing how the ball carries here. Springers double looked effortless.

Altuve made up for one of his fielding mishaps.

Just throw your bat at the ball, Jose.

He hit it off the plate
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

I'm okay if the don't play him there this year to focus on his batting. He is only 21, he can be taught to play 1st base almost assuredly. But long term that's his position.

I thought that was going too get caught easy. I swear he hit it off the end of the bat.

Three consecutive doubles. Nice.

No doubt

I just don't think they wanna throw that at him during his first season.

Same with Yuli when he first got here. He didn't make the move to 1B until he got a full off-season work at 1B.

Back-to-back-to back dbls!

Is Colorado on every pitcher's "no trade" list?

I'm going to revise this statement. First to 12 wins. Maybe.

On a different note, I hate these two day road trips.

And Shaw is a great example of why no pitcher should ever choose to play in COL.

He was pretty damn good in CLE with ERAs in the 2-3 range until he went to COL and the ERA shot up to 5+.
