Debating the biggest decision the Astros have faced in years

Earlier this week, Justin Verlander participated in a simulated game as he works his way back from an arm injury that's kept him out for almost the entire season. Sure the Astros would love to have Verlander back, but it does come with a decent amount of risk. Should Houston rush back Justin Verlander to pitch this season or should they rest him and hope he's ready to pitch in 2021 which is the final year of his contract? Check out the video to hear both sides of the argument.
