    AJ Reed - 1B HOU

    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

    AJ Reed - 1B HOU

    My point was that the .593 OPS was not a true reflection, because much of it was without Gattis in the lineup. His current .745 OPS is more reflective of their true OPS. He only DH'd 28 of their 49 games

    AJ Reed - 1B HOU

    What exactly is Reed showing right now you that makes you think he'll be any better than what's currently up in the big leagues? The DH position has put up a .593 OPS for the Astros this year. So if you think Reed can beat that then he is an improvement. Gattis is the main DH now, and he is better than Reed, ATM. 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. Your better argument is for 1B and DH when Gattis catches once or twice a week, but that will have to wait until after super 2
