5 Deep beat me by seconds. I know that FODB isn’t going to mess with the lineup today and get the new guys in. We’ve just been rolling on offense and hanging runs left and right. It just wouldn’t make any sense.

Click: “Trey is a guy that we had had our eye on for a while, just one of the better hitters that we felt like we would have a chance to acquire at the Deadline, somebody who can hit lefties and righties. Gives you a very professional at-bat, can play first base, can play DH, can play corner outfield. We were looking for versatility and we were looking for quality bats and having him in whatever role we end up finding for him we felt lengthened our bench.”


Hey FODB, Mancini lengthens the bench by putting Yuli on it, not the other way around!

quote:

Click: “We continue to have faith in Jake Meyers. Jake was a big part of this team last year. We know how valuable he is to the lineup and certainly to the defense, and we are going to continue to work with him on moving him back into that form that we saw last year when he was just an elite defender in center field and brought a lot to the game. We were looking at upgrading any part of the roster we could. That certainly falls under that. There were lots of different options on the table because of the different personal fits we had on the roster.”


Sink or swim time for Jake.

quote:

Click: “Hunter is somebody I think about a lot making these decisions on the Major League level. He is having a tremendous amount of success in [Triple-A] Sugar Land and I think he has a very bright future with the Astros. We make decisions up here with that in mind. Some of the willingness to trade away starting pitching is a reflection of Lance McCullers Jr. [nearing the end of his rehab] and some of it our starting pitching depth we do have in the Minors. It is a factor in the decision and we’ll continue to have those conversations going forward.”


Hunter Brown call up imminent.

Interesting though, no comments on Vazquez.

This is what you get when an owner directly hires a manager before he hires a gm. Total misalignment.

Altuve and Peña will be rested today after their multi hit performance

This is what you get when MLB forces an owner to directly hire a manager as a PR move before he hires a gm. Total misalignment.

I don't believe it was forced. This is a crane special. Just like hiring Porter.

It's like a 3-year episode of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Year 3 of FODB. If history follows course he's on the verge of doing/saying something more stupid than normal and getting run off.

Ideal scenario: The Astros win the World Series and Dusty rides off into the retirement sunset on a cloud of weed smoke. Espada takes over as manager and Yuli hangs up the cleats to become the new bench coach.

Not having Tucker at least attempt a bunt last night, shows just how far FODB head is up his ass.

Mancini has 99 career starts in RF. Would like to see him out there a little to see if he's a serviceable option and if a Diaz/Tuck/Trey OF is an option down the road.

Kyle Tucker has played center before. Could he be an option there?

Click: “If we are going to explore that possibility, it is something we’re not going to take lightly. That said, Kyle is one of the best defensive right fielders in baseball and he has all the ingredients I think could lead to a very successful defensive center fielder, but we can’t let that take away from the other parts of this team and what makes him successful.”




So... can Diaz play CF? And Mancini LF? They seem to have no intention of moving Tucker (he isn't Ted until he remembers how to hit) off of RF.

I took that more as Click knows damn well he can do it but then making excuses for why they don't.

I took it more as "of course Tucker could play CF, but Dusty is too stubborn to move him there because he's been in RF all season, and Dusty is a big believer in baseball mojo."

Looks like Vazquez behind the dish and Trey at 1B.

FODB.

ETA: Batting 7 and 8 in the lineup.
