No true Astros fan, but the strawman is strong around here, and I don't mean Miles.

There's nothing wrong with saying Tucker doesn't pass the eye test. That's not rooting for him to to fail or saying pull the plug he's done ship him out.

He reminds me of Hunter Pence. Looks like a string bean, swing looks out of control and awkward with no batting gloves.

He's one of the best hitters in AAA, the top Astros prospect, and young.

He looks like Hunter Pence...as if that's a bad thing...?

What doesn't pass the smell test?

I'm very happy for Tucker. That was pure joy on his face after the HR. I am also extremely excited for our future, the front office and management has made great decisions at every turn.

I trust the FO and think his development has been handled properly. Seems odd that Tucker is so divisive around here, it is like he is Trump, you are only allowed to love him or hate him, no middle ground allowed. Any criticism is met with howls of hate, why must reactions be so superlative? Astros are 91-50 and have protected their #1 prospect through some big deals.

Good post squirrel, I hope he hits so well that he forces his way onto the post-season roster, but I know we can't count on it.

Some people rag on him for loafing in the outfield last year. I don't remember those plays myself, but I think that's part of the controversy he seems to generate.

He was actually right about average in the PCL, except in slugging

Quote:

The average batting average in the Pacific Coast League this season is .277. Tucker is batting .267. The average on-base percentage in the PCL is .354. Tucker has a .355. The average slugging percentage is .480. Tucker has slugged .555, the only thing that has set the 22-year-old's bat apart in an offense-crazy league. Ultimately, he has been only 12 percent more productive than the PCL average.

You know what, gfy. I said he was average. If you want to get your panties twisted over facts, that's on you.

Crowded sports night. Astros at 7. USMNT plays Mexico at 7:30 with urine bags and laser pointers at 8:00.

Tomorrow isn't better. Ags at 2:30 and I have tickets to watch JV at 6.

It's a tough life.

Tucker had a great night but the guy he would replace had an equal if not better night. Reddick was 3-3 with a dong, not sure why AJ summed for Reddick instead of Ted

But kudos to Ted, I have been riding him but Reddick still finishes with a higher average and WAR
Part of his development... Get him out there when there's likely someone on base and teach him how to hit with pressure.
