7 HR 22 RBI

Not bad for a rookie with only 133 at-bats. Not bad at all! Hopefully he can raise his average up just a bit.

And the one today was a rocket off Iwakuma, who is a very good pitcher. Springer was impressive in this series. Astros' fans SHOULD be excited.

With the way he hit in Seattle, he should ask for a trade to Seattle

Hell yeah they should, I mean they have nothing else to be excited about this year. I remember when Pence was called up I followed every game he played despite not being an Astros fan. I think I will follow Springer this year.

The Mariners could use him. They actually hit better on the road than at Safeco. Weird!

After a bad month of April (14 games) Springer is on fire in May:

75 AB .293 Avg 6 HR 16 RBI

The true story of the day goes to Dallas Keuchel. This guy has figured it out. Here is the stats for his last 3 games (vs Tex, LAA, SEA)

26.2 IP 2 ER 1 BB 21 SO

Living in Houston, most of us can't even watch the games.

You're putting up the good fight along with the cable providers here in LA. It's time to stand up to the providers trying to rape consumers over sports channels.

It's almost as if 2-3 games don't decide his future!
