Glad to see diaz offense picking up... his defense is still sketchy at times but seems to be settling down ..

Haha that’s funny Johnny. Where is the guy that was talking about Springer not being worth a long extension and was way down on Brantley with his injury history at the start of the season???

I’m gonna need him to talk some **** about Altuve now if he is still around

Oh I don’t necessarily disagree with your take. With his age and everything else I would tend to agree with what the analytics tell us. He is playing out of his mind though and destroying off speed stuff this year which has been a problem in the past. If he keeps it up I could see an extension similar to Bregman. Eat up the last two year and something like 4 for 75 million. The only reason I think they could sign him is because if his production and the fact he Is the glue guy of that locker room/ team.

Define resign. I may be inclined to take your bet. I think what got you, was saying that his best days were already behind him. What we are seeing shows he hasnt peaked yet. This isnt just a hot streak. He has been doing this all season long. I think it shows signs of him maturing as a hitter.

Springer will be a free agent after the 2020 season and I don't think the Astros will resign him, though last winter's free agent market made that much more likely than it was a year ago that he could sign a short extension for three years or so for his age 31-33 seasons.

Astros on cheat code at the moment. Made the Rangers look like a high school team and working on the others now.

10-1 in their last 11 games
33 home runs
+55 run differential

Detroit has only hit 32 home runs all year

Yep, trade him for a six pack of Luhnow's choice and a box of Big League chew for the guys in the dugout.

Luhnow was in round rock this week to watch prospects and speak with them. Some indirect comments but he said what’s even more impressive with Yordan is how the pitchers are pitching around him and he is still getting hits and walks like crazy.

Edited:
35 games so far
.410 average
17 hr’s
16 doubles
52 RBI’s

It’s now a matter of when not if

Another good article.. talks of possibly the super two date was moved up this year with all the mid May call ups. Maybe it’s nothing, or maybe it’s everything. We will see how it shakes up.

Mixed feeling on that...
They dont "need" him yet... let him continue to tear it up down there...
Flip side.. get him 'early' show experience to get the shock/awe out of way so he can get to doing what he was doing in AAA...and also give "early' opportunity to see if what he was doing actually translates to the show.

First world problems

Diaz removed from game. Kemp in at 2nd now. No word on what he may have strained. He was grabbing behind his knee the other day on third base.
