Astros Need an Htown Beatdown from their Bats

If the Astros have to out slug the Red Sox and they probably do, the lineup tonight should be


Altuve

Tucker

Correa

Alvarez

Gurriel

Brantley

Bregman

Castro

CF- Pick one, whoever looks best in batting practice, the differences are small for tonight, maybe Meyers if healthy. I will default to McCormi


It's time the Astros force the issue offensively. I have written before about a runs predictor / lineup analyzer tool I like at https://www.baseballmusings.com.


In the table below, I show the standard lineup, my lineup, and the Baseball Musings lineup (it pays no attention to R/L splits). The current lineup is predicted to net 5.421 runs/ game and my lineup is predicted to net 5.658 runs/game. Let's do it!
