    The problem with his article is Gattis is not set to be the teams full time DH in 2018. In fact, if there is an opportunity to sign LuCroy , they are considering non-tendering him. Gattis would cost the Astros $6 mil plus if he is tendered. That's a lot of money for a part time DH/C that doesn't project as a full time player at either position.

    Gattis is very popular. If Drayron were still owner he would be resigned 100%. I'm not sure if the GM will be more calculating with personnel decisions post WS or yield to sentiment a little. I would love it if Luc ended up here

    Ironically, Luc was a HS summer teammate of the guy who was going to be the Astros catcher for years, Max Sapp, 23rd pick overall by Houston in 2006. He was incredible. Best HS player I've ever seen, well, after Zach Greinke. LH with big power and could have been Brian McCann, or better. Got meningitis at 19 and almost died. He was never was the same.

    The problem with Gattis is he blocks McCann from getting rest at DH. He is also a terrible catcher, so is he worth $6 Mil per year? They are looking to improve defensively and also keep McCann fresh because he has old knees. They are also going to give Derek Fisher former #1 pick a shot at the job in LF this spring. That would move Gonzalez back to his role of utility player and splitting time with Gurriel at 1st Base. If Fisher wins that job, there is no room for Gattis and you can DH McCann, Gonzalez and Gurriel.
