  1. I was surprised he wasn't the one sent down when Springer came back.
  2. It's not a Marisnick vs. Tucker situation. If Tucker doesn't produce and Marwin/Kemp do, Tucker could absolutely be sent back down. Let's hope that doesn't happen.
  3. Gattis has been the Astros primary DH. He hasn't played Catcher this season and McCann is hitting .215 so I doubt he would be competition at DH. Marwin Gonzalez could possibly factor in with Tony Kemp getting playing time in LF.
  4. Nice. I did something similar. Drafted Wil Myers (1B, OF), Dee Gordon (2B, OF), Manny Machado (3B, SS) & Zack Cozart (2B, SS, 3B).
  5. I'm going to roll the dice. Houston's offense has been relatively cold out of the gate.
  6. Very solid outing today (5 innings, 7 k's only 1 hit allowed), but it's an obvious benching @COL.
  7. That was the 2nd time today he got called out looking on a pitch that was well off the plate.
  8. I added him this morning because the Pit-Det game got rained out and I didn't have anyone to replace Marte. Nice opening day decision.
  9. I would say it's sustainable because he looked like a different pitcher last year. Risk is definitely there if he gets off to a bad start since he has McHugh and Peacock behind him in the Astros rotation.
  10. The darkhorse is probably J.D Davis. Hinch was interviewed during the spring game today and said one of Reed/Davis/White would likely make the team with Yuli's absence and there wasn't a clear favorite. Davis is the guy in that group that's off to a quick start with a couple bombs already this spring. Still I think Fisher is the guy starting opening day.

    AJ Reed - 1B HOU

    Are you talking this year or long term? I'm at least expecting both Beltran (DH) and Gurriel (1B) to be solid for Houston this year.

    AJ Reed - 1B HOU

    Maybe you should be counting Preston Tucker AB's. 1-2 with a double. So the DH position was 2/3 with a HBP. Marwin Gonzalez did look pretty bad at the plate today, though. Hinch already said Tyler White would be getting the start tomorrow.

    AJ Reed - 1B HOU

    Gattis is the Astros DH. Carter is hitting .182 and has given the Astros no reason to believe he will turn it around. Singleton has been the classic example of a AAAA player: He has dominated minor league pitching but has struggled mightily in the majors. Luis Valbuena & Marwin Gonzalez have both gotten their share of starts at 1B for the Astros recently and both are easily replaceable. The Astros are in the playoff race and have been weak at 1B all year and A.J. Reed could strengthen the position for them. I'm surprised the Astros haven't called up Reed already.
