Going to my first game tomorrow in 3-1/2 years. Only Astro gear is my 2007 Hunter Pence jersey. To wear or not to wear?
To wear!

Good dude, good Astro, still helping us out by keeping the Rangers mediocre & postponing the rebuild.

Alvarez gets a night off when all he does is walk out with a bat in his hands. Thats wasting your best bat.

It's probably also to give someone like Springer a DH night.

Sounds like a good excuse to make a trip to Academy and buy a new Astros jersey

You never know, that knee that he has bombarded twice in 1.5 months with 100+ MPH foul balls could be a bit sore. And the young man could maybe use a mental breather once in a while.

I think he needs a mental day. He's batting a cool .194 in his last 11 games.

However he still has an OBP of .362 and OPS of .806.... He is such a freak...

Quote:

The infield shift in baseball is a defensive realignment from the standard positions to blanket one side of the field or another. Used primarily against left-handed batters, it is designed to protect against base hits pulled hard into the gaps between the fielders on one side. Originally called the Williams shift, it has periodically been referred to as the Boudreau shift or Ortiz shift since then.

I really don't think the shift works well with a Greinke, kuechal style pitcher

I have zero stats to back this up
