I hate to criticize an organization like Houston, though. Any franchise that can field a lineup with two offensive cyphers like Adam Everett (OPS .642) and Brad Ausmus (OPS .593, not a typo, .593) year after year must know what they're doing.
There was no point of putting him out there today especially against the Cardinals. At least he isn't on my fantasy team.
