Fixing the Houston Astros’ Lineup
I took a lot of guff recently from Astros Reddit for my projected lineup in a recent post. A post, mind you, in which I picked the Astros to win the World Series, so you’d think they’d have cut me some slack. Nope.
I will admit that upon further consideration my initial thoughts about the Astros starting lineup leave some things to be desired. I’m not going to use this space for an impassioned defense of a hypothetical batting order full of players who happen to be healthy right now for use in 1 out of 162 games. I admit, I made some mistakes.
It seems like making an Astros batting order might be a pretty difficult thing to do, considering that real life manager AJ Hinch made an absolute mess of it on Opening Day.
