guess no one is playing 2B today.


Original_Shovel

Thats more of what im getting at. We got the left side locked down


TomatoRemarkable3721

Diaz can play the entire infield he’s probably at 2nd


TanClark

Yeah they should have him listed as UTL

Permanent shift. I like it.


WhittSmitt

Altuve so owns second that it’s been determined that nobody else can play second, but we can have two SS.


dream_team34

Dusty is so ahead of the times! Double SS lineup is the way to go!


bordomsdeadly

Diaz is playing short, but he will be in the shift the entire game. He'll play approximately where the 2nd Baseman would play.


Thornton__Melon

I like Meyers at 9, a 2nd lead off because Castro is basically me batting blindfolded at this point


ThriftyFalcon

![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|grin)I thought of this comment as soon as he hit that bomb


Thornton__Melon

I know 😂 I was glad to be wrong


RojerLockless

Same with Maldonado but somehow Castro is worse.


Why_Istanbul

Peña and Diaz about to stand on each other’s shoulders while playing defense


LayneLowe

I know it's lefty lefty and dusty doesn't really like to do that But Alvarez followed by Tucker has been solid gold.


CoachWatermelon

“I don’t care about righty lefty.”


bobbydinner

"Hattie. Not Pena."


lacrease

I like Breg before alvarez since he gets on base so much


Belikedis

I’m assuming Diaz is playing 2B


chimp20

I like more AB’s for Yordan.


crusemaister

Double shortstop is a bold strategy


bkcrouchet

It worked


gwatson86

I get Bregman has been hot over his last 10, but I can't see any real justification for having him bat cleanup over Yordan.


TomatoRemarkable3721

I think it’s mostly because dusty doesn’t want too many consecutive righties. Probably explains why Castro is batting 8th and not 9th


HoustonAstros1980

Taijuan has been really solid this season. This lineup suggests Dusty is expecting a close game. Alvarez-Bregman-Tucker will give Mets bullpen fits in late innings.


ImJustDerp

I’m honestly fine with Yordan hitting in front of Breggy while Breggy is hot since nobody wants to pitch to Yordan. When Breggy cools down, move them back to normal.


jyok33

Castro should be batting 10th every game


AstrosDrip

Castro just screams “I have a huge confidence problem on the field”. I played the exact same way he is right now when my confidence was rock bottom, always shit contact and not making defensive plays.


ThriftyFalcon

Please post this before every Castro start


wessneijder

Wtf more Castro I know Maldy needs to rest his knees but come on ffs. Man I miss the Ausmus/Eusebio combo.


veintisiete

remember McCann and Oso Blanco?


wessneijder

Yes I remember him too I was sad when he went to the Braves.


ElSummonero

Brevan McGattis?


bewarethephog

Castro always catches for JV.


Germizard

Two shortstops dusty a mad lad


wesman21

I trust in Dusty, but I like the best four bats hitting top 4. Plain Jane or whatever, give me Altuve, Bergman, Tucker, Yordan. Yordan should be up with one man on damn near 70% of the time. Make that SP throw to those four to start off the game.


extremefurryslayer

What happened to Brantley?

BigShotBuckNasty

2 SS’s i like the perma- shift dusty


electrikmayham

Just means were in the shift all game.


MasterMentorJr

Its a new innovative shift the Astros are trying


XSATC

Getting in those crazy ass shifts before they ban them next year!

Mr. Magoo doing Mr Magoo things. Lol
