He needs 30 more at bats before he's ready to hit in a big league game.  His defense, however...

So, right now, he’s just a really good shortstop. 
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Yep.

Defense is worth it while the bat comes around.

Yep. 

Thought it was weird he started taking his gear off at the plate like it was the 3rd out.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Kiermaier played for the Canberra Cavalry in the ABL, and that is unforgivable.

T3:

Kiermaier...0-2...flies out to shallow CF
Adames strikes out swinging
Diaz grounds out 6-3

No score
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Which is nothing to sneeze at.  But he's just not going to  be productive at the plate in the postseason.

Right on cue,  a nice play to end the top of the 3rd.

I think the pitch hit him, so he thought he was getting a base.

That has a ring to it, it could catch on.

Replay showed it was nowhere close.  That much deviation off the bounce would be devastating in cricket.

Maybe it's a residual stink left over from his Mariner days but I don't care for Mike Zunino.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

B3:

Maldonado...2-0...2-1 on a pitch over his head...2-2 on a pitch even higher over his head...3-2 on a pitch 5 feet off the plate...takes a fastball belt high right down the center of the plate.
Springer flies out F8 in shallow RCF...crowd goes crazy
Altuve...3-0...3-1 on a pitch at the shoulders...3-2...doubles to LF
Brantley...quickly 0-2...1-2...2-2...strikes out swinging at a pitch in the dirt, ball gets away from catcher towards the dugout, Brantley doesn't realize it and doesn't run at first...now he does, catcher runs it down and nips him at 1B

Astros with another LOBster in scoring position...no score

Snell threw 11 pitches to Maldonado and Brantley, only one was a strike...he struck both out.

Couple of tough breaking balls in that Brantley AB.

Then you should be glad that d'Arnaud is catching?

The Machete 2-0 swing was infuriating.
