Spring training baseball at MLB prices

It is doubtful that this will be a popular post and that is your prerogative.

If you are buying tickets to this extended spring training season you should be hailed as the greatest Astros fan ever.

1B – Carlos Lee - somewhat auditioning for whoever he is traded to or for his next team in 2013.

2B – Jose Altuve - one of two (maybe 3) players on the current roster that has a chance to be around when the Astros are contenders again.

3B - Chris Johnson – a placeholder for the next real 3rd baseman that the Astros find.

SS – Jed Lowrie – another placeholder for Jiovanni Mier. If he can hit with any consistency and still flash the leather.

LF – J.D. Martinez – Should be at least "one of" the best players on the team when we are competitive.

CF – Jordan Schafer – Placeholder for George Springer but still potential 4th OF in 2014ish

RF – Brian Bogusevic – Placeholder for Fernando Martinez if he keeps hitting in AAA. (.347/3HR/14RBI/4BB) (GOOD GRIEF WHY ISN’T HE HERE NOW???)

C – Jason Castro - Who needs to figure out what that stick in his hand 4 times a game is for, or he’ll be a placeholder for Ben Heath next year.

To pay to watch this team is extraordinary. It’s hard to watch "try outs" at the major league level let alone pay to see it. As it is said about the NFL every year; "Pre-season football at regular season prices." That’s what we are getting now; spring training baseball at regular season prices.
