A Look at Fantasy Baseball Through the Lens’ of an Astros Fan
Here is how I did in Week 9:
Week 9 Hitter:
Carlos Correa– 12/29 H/AB, 4 R, 0 HR, 7 RBI, 0 SB, .414 BA
With George Springer and Jose Altuve switching spots at the top of the lineup, the Astros offense seemed to switch on winning six of their last seven games. The main recipient of that switch was neither Springer nor Altuve.

After getting a pinch-hit three-run home run that ended up winning the game against the Angels on May 29th, Correa’s bat seemed to heat up.
In this past week, Correa, raising his batting average from .250 to .267, has 12 hits in 29 at bats including four extra base hits. He was productive from the third spot in the lineup, driving in seven runners and scoring four times. Although his home run power has not shown since his game winner in Los Angeles, Correa has hit his first three triples of the year in June.
As the Astros go into a critical series in Arlington, Correa needs to be the same run producer as he was in the series win against the Arizona Diamondbacks and the sweep of the Oakland A’s. If he does continue to hit and drive in RBIs for a red-hot offensive Astros club, Correa is a must start.
