QUICK HITS PRESENTED BY TEXAS STAR GRILL SHOP

Let's have a real discussion about the best Astros team ever

The Houston Astros are headed to the playoffs again and this might be the most loaded roster in Astros history.

This team will ultimately be judged by playoff performance, but the talent on the team can't be denied.

ESPN 97.5's Charlie Pallilo and Raheel Ramzanali debate if this is the best Astros team ever, and further more, if they could be the best team in MLB history. Quick Hits is presented by Texas Star Grill Shop.

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.
