5-8 weeks would suck, but the goal is to be healthy in September.


I'd say missing Altuve, Brantley, McCullers and possibly Yordan to start the season would qualify as a big suck.


On the bright side they'll be less worn down in Oct.
on the down side those kinds of injuries are what makes the difference in being in 1st and getting a bye and playing in a crapshoot WC game.


Maybe but we had a bye by 14 games last year.


Your lack of concern is noted.


Not lack of concern. But just not jumping off any bridges yet.

Who is jumping? I said it would suck. I didn't say postseason hopes were over...

Looking forward to the nerd haters gloating about Jose's injury being disappointed when the Astros keep kicking ass.

And I was just finding the positive in a bad situation.

Bard might be the most hated person in 2 countries, tonight.

Not worried about playoffs without Jose for half a season - but may have to go place a bet on the under 97.5 games.

Who knows if we do this... But I didn't realize he hasn't signed anywhere

If it's 8 weeks from today, that would be May 13th. Round to the end of the road trip and that would be 40 games out or about a quarter of the season.

Hensley is the next Ben zobrist

He is better than Profar today

Having a 6'6 2nd baseman fill in for our 5'6 one would be hilariously awesome.

There is only 1 2nd baseman that's over 6'2.

****ing Bard. POS. Some highlights from his illustrious career.

2012/2013 - Boston minor league system. 47.1 innings in 47 appearances. Managed to walk 56 and give up 36 runs while hitting another 10 batters and having 20 wild pitches. That's a 6.85 ERA, 2.13 WHIP, and a 10.65 BB/9

2014 - Rangers minor league system, recorded only 2 outs in 4 appearances. Gave up 13 runs over those 4 appearances, walking 9 and hitting 7 in only 18 batters faced. Didn't allow a single hit because everyone just walked. Had one strikeout and one in play out. That's good for a 13.5 WHIP, 121.5 BB/9, and a 175.5 ERA.

2016/17 - Cardinals and Mets minor league system. 12.1 innings over 18 appearances. Gave up 22 runs by walking 37 and hitting 9 batters while having 13 wild pitches. That's one wild pitch for every ~6 batters he faces. Or about once per inning.. Good for a 16.05 ERA, a 27 BB/9, and a 3.73 WHIP.

This dude has never known where the ball is going. **** him. He's cleaned it up a bit in Colorado but clearly regressed under the bright lights. Trash.

terrible news about Altuve.

hopefully he's out for less than a month.

get ready for 300 AB's for Dubon...ugh.

I guess Pena to the leadoff spot.

at this rate Tucker will be batting 3rd and Abreu 4th

and this is not a good development for Altuve's quest for 3,000 hits

Agreed. It would be dumb to sign anyone at this point. Good opportunity to evaluate Hensley and see what can do in a more regular role.

Been at WP this weekend. Yordan is hitting. Brantley was just hanging around.

Yeah. Haven't seen Brantley pick up a bat. Thought for a moment he was taking fly balls on Thursday, but I guess not.

Hensley at 2B over Dubon or we riot.

Diaz in left is interesting. Has he done that before? Dirden getting some extra looks, too.

Dirden is making the roster now, IMO, at least as a LH PH option and defensive replacement.
