Jason Castro’s August performance was absolutely stunning. As we begin September Jason is out with a right knee injury. It is the same knee that Castro had surgery on in 2011. It poses Andy and Ray to ask the question, is another defensive position in his future?

Some of the other highlights include:

-Andy finally has CSN Houston! What are the three biggest things he notices when getting to see baseball again.

-What is going on with the Astros and their base running?

-How awesome is it to have six teams in the minor league playoffs this year?
