SPORTSMAP ROUNDTABLE PRESENTED BY TIGHT ENDS SPORTS BAR & GRILL

Here's our midseason GM report card for Bill O'Brien

Now that half of the Texans season is almost in the books, it's a good time to evaluate the job Bill O'Brien has done this year.

But instead of talking about his performance coaching the team, let's talk about the moves he's made as the general manager.

ESPN 97.5's John Granato, Lance Zierlein, and Raheel Ramzanali grade Bill O'Brien's performance as Texans GM at the midpoint of the season. SportsMap Roundtable is presented by Tight Ends Sports Bar & Grill.

After Yordan Alvarez suffered an injury on Thursday from colliding into Jeremy Peña in short left field, many fans and media are questioning whether Alvarez should DH exclusively to keep injuries like this from happening.

While this may prevent injuries from happening in left field, there are numerous ways of getting hurt, such as running the bases, and we saw Alvarez miss some time recently with a hand injury from swinging the bat.

Plus, playing Yordan in left where he's at least an average outfielder, allows veterans like Michael Brantley and Jose Altuve to slide in the DH spot to get some much-needed rest over the course of the season. And there's an argument being made that Yordan is better at the plate when he's playing the field.
