You’ve probably heard the news. Yordan Alvarez, Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, Robel Garcia, and Martin Maldonado have been place on Il due to COVID protocols.

In their places the Astros have promoted Taylor Jones, Garrett Stubbs, Abraham Toro, Alex De Goti, and Ronnie Dawson.

WE’RE NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE POLITICS OF COVID TONIGHT, DAMN IT. OR ANY OTHER POLITICS. GO ON TWITTER FOR THAT.

Frankly, the way they’ve been playing lately, this might just help them. Not really. I’m just depressed about the whole situation.

Here’s the lineup.
