Astros Open Forum: Key takeaways from Games 1 & 2, ALDS.

Astros Open Forum: Key takeaways from Games 1 & 2, ALDS.

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports What have we learned so far. What do you think? What have we learned from Game 1 & 2? I will offer a few of my own random observations, but this is really about what YOU think. Carlos Correa had three hits but he has also looked bad striking out four times in eight AB’s. He also made a tremendous fielding play to start Game 2. Is his back OK? I say yes, but with so little playing time in the last six weeks, he is probably trying to regain his timing at the plate. Let him play even if he stumbles again, unless he gets hurt, of course. The Astros came...

The Starting Nine: Who do you think should bat for the Astros with a playoff game on the line?

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports A lot of good options. Who do you trust the most? Game 7. Score: 4-4. Two outs, runner on second, bottom of the ninth inning. Who’s the best guy to win the game? The Astros have a lot of firepower. Let me suggest a few options. George Springer: .292/.383/.591 (BA/OBP/SLG) Yuli Gurriel............298/.343/.541 Jose Altuve............298/.353/.550 Alex Bregman........296/.423/.592 Michael Brantley: .311/.372/.503 Yordan Alvarez.......313/.412/.655 Carlos Correa.........279/.358/.568 Jake Marisnick........233/.289/.411 OK, maybe not Jake.

Houston Astros: Aledmys Diaz should be Carlos Correa’s insurance policy

Houston Astros infielder Aledmys Diaz should be carried on the postseason roster just in case Carlos Correa can’t go in the ALDS. Why? Let’s examine. The Houston Astros just have two more games to go before it’s time to gear up for the postseason.  They’ve reached so many milestones this season, it’s hard to keep […] Houston Astros: Aledmys Diaz should be Carlos Correa’s insurance policy - House of Houston - House of Houston - A Houston Sports Site - Texans, Rockets, Astros, Dynamo, Cougars and More!

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Wade Miley pitches for an Astros clinch with a win tonight. Join the discussion. After two abysmal starts earlier this month in which Wade Miley could only get one out, his last start was a bounce back of sorts, going six innings allowing only two runs. Has he righted the ship? Is he “playoff ready?” Tonight’s performance might shed light on those questions. Carlos Correa is baaaaaaaaaaack. Two home runs last night, so the preliminary verdict on whether Correa is “playoff ready” after his injury is a YES. Facing Miley tonight for the Angels is...
