Here’s what stands between Yordan Alvarez and the AL Rookie of the Year award

Yordan Alvarez is off to a smoking hot start to his career with the Astros, but where does he stack up in the AL Rookie of the Year race?

Alvarez is posting numbers that compete with the rest of the front runners for AL ROY, and he's only played in about half the amount of games as those players.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank talks about the incredible numbers Alvarez is posting, and weighs in on who should be the favorite to win AL Rookie of the Year.

Point Blank is presented by Fitz Roofing.

A move like this would involve trading at least one first round draft pick (you have 4 over the next 2 years) and perhaps more. But considering the Saints never had less than 7 wins with Sean Payton in charge despite being in a competitive division, they never no-showed in playoff games. Though they were let down by Drew Brees in a few of their last few appearances.

Payton successfully designed an offense to maximize Brees; a short, largely immobile QB with a chronic shoulder problem (but a great QB, especially in the first half of Payton's time with the Saints).

New Orleans had been a joke franchise for its entire existence before Payton's arrival, something you could argue the Texans are now.

Shouldn't Cal McNair and Nick Caserio strongly consider trading draft picks for Super Bowl 44 Champion Head Coach Sean Payton?
