Coors Light Hot Take

Holly Seymour: Don't fix the o-line for me, do it for Deshaun!

Despite the Texans making some decent free agent signings, they haven't done much to help Deshaun Watson. Adding the Honey Badger is great and all, but he doesn't play offense. Not only have the Texans failed to land a starting left tackle to replace Duane Brown, but they also need to find a blocking TE after C.J. Fiedorowicz was forced to retire due to concussions. Houston finally has the coveted QB position in good hands, so Texans GM Brian Gaine needs to do the best he can to keep it that way.

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.
