That's fine, and I agree, a .593 is not an accurate depiction of the Astros future DH OPS without Reed. You did say " Gattis has a .745 OPS for the year and 1.039 in the 10 games since being called back up. So, no, Reed probably won't do better than that. " I''m not sure how to interpret that . I do think Reed can do better than that unless you mean a 1.039 OPS int he majors for the rest of the season which I dont think he or Gattis will do.
I think we agree Reed should come up and be the primary 1B. I do believe he is better than what is there now. Whether he or Gattis will be better the rest of this year is debatable. I would give Gattis the edge, because of experience vs a rookie. I would take Reed over White/Gonzalez right now
