There are 70 games left on the season. Yordan has played 21 so far with 9 HRs. Let's assume he plays in 63 of the 70 remaining games to account for NL parks and random days off. That would put him at 27 HRs on the year.

Y'all taking the over or under on that?

Edit: I suck at math. It's 27 more HRs in the remaining 63 games. So it would be 36 total for the year.

This is a good question. I keep wondering if teams will adjust and find ways to work him. Then watch a game like last night and he says **** you and pulls out the 9 iron. I will take the under but not by much.

Definitely taking the under. I'd love for the over, but pitching staffs will have more tape on him and he'll start to slow down.

I'd say Yordan ends up with about 23 HR and 65 RBI at season's end.

He will go through a slump like every player does, and pitchers will adjust. But those numbers will be really good for a rookie.

my fear is that Hinch is so stubborn, he won't move Altuve down in the order.

can't have Yordan and Yuli hitting 5th & 6th with as hot as they are right now


The numbers indicate that batting order has almost no impact on the game's outcome.

I agree with that give or take 3-5 HRs. If he plays 63 more games he will have played in 84 on the season so about half a full season. Mid 20s HRs and 65ish RBI is pretty elite for a 22 year old.

Expectations will be extremely high for him next year.

If he can continue to lay off the high heater he's gonna be incredible. That's the only spot that seems to be a slight weakness.

and it looks like folks are coming around...to the realization that catcher is on Luhnow's trade deadline shopping list
Weren't you the "JT who?" guy like a month ago?
it may end up being a lose-lose for the Astros and the fading Phillies (47-44).

I think Chirinos can be okay for the playoffs, but he needs rest. The front office is wearing him out in large part because Stassi can't hit

We look like a tired team and we are just off the all-star break. From Framber not getting out of the 1st inning last night to the all-around bullpen meltdown tonight, I'm definitely concerned about the pitching staff. We definitely have 4 better starters than Framber (once Peacock is back) but we have to find someone that can give us some innings in the 5th spot. I don't understand why Framber stayed up and Sneed was sent down.
and the Astros don't have a day off until July 25th.

btw...apparently Framber is starting again in Anaheim, because Sneed cannot be called up for 10 days (according to the Chronicle this morning)

at this moment Yordan leads the team in batting average, on-base %, slugging %...all the slash lines categories.

and he's up to 90 plate appearances

I really hope the Astros win tonight... the line in here for the cliffs looks to be getting long. Haha.

and going back in Astros history...

what's happening with Yordan is reminiscent of when Roy Oswalt was called up in 2001.

he came up in May of that year and his first 8 appearances were out of the bullpen. Roy O. got his first start in June and beat the Dodgers. Then he beats the Twins, Rockies, and Brewers to finish the month.

by the end of July he was the ace of the staff

I agree with all of that, but Stassi has never been able to hit which is why I thought the "JT who?" take was silly.

If Tucker looks anything like Yordan then it was good we didn't make the trade but that has nothing to do with Chrinos, who was a nice pick up and started hot but is who we thought he was - a good platoon catcher. JT on the other hand is once again an all star who can play the majority of the season @ catcher giving you some of the best defense in the league along with offense that by the end of the season will be a significant upgrade on Chirinos.

That's true, which is why I said there is nearly no effect. Batters at the top of the lineup get between 0 and 1 additional plate appearance in the game. Compared to those at the bottom, but the impact is very small on average.
