This season has been difficult.

Houston cannot have more than one successful sports franchise at a time...

Haven't been able to catch a game in weeks, might try to tune in to some of this one because I have a self-destructive nature.
We watched the tragedy unfold. We did as we were told, we bought and sold. It was the greatest show on Earth...but then it was over.

Astros came up short but still had a terrific season, and even though I'm not sold on the Texans at all, they have had a surprisingly good season as well despite starting out 0-3. I never thought it would be the Rockets that would fall off so hard after the season they had last year...guess they shot their wad and it wasn't quite enough to slip one past the goalie and now they can't get it up again.

Oh well.

I need the Astros to overpay for Realmuto so they can cock block the Stankees and the stupid Braves from getting him. Go Astros!

This team has four rotation caliber players

I know it goes against the D'Antoni system but we should use Capela to pound it inside a lot more than we do

Nah.

Capela is not that type of player and isn't really physically built to be.
Also, doing so would compromise what he does best as a rim running lob target who spaces the floor.

The Rockets have developed Capela into the prototypical modern center and he's excelled in that role.
He's a near All-Star caliber player and probably would have a great shot at making it if not for the disappointing team record so far. I don't see a rational reason to change that now.
Evolution is a process.

Stay tuned.

I'm good on this one. That's a waste of his PnR talents and he's putting him in a worse position to succeed
