So, George Springer? Was there any other way to start House of Shlain this week but by bowing down to our new overlord King George? Um, no! Springer has 10 home runs this season and all of them have come in May. The Twitter hashtag #SpringerDinger is getting plenty of use. People are starting to not treat the Astros like the Indians in Major League and while the rotation coming together nicely (Dallas Keuchel, Colin McHugh, Brad Peacock, Scott Feldman) has helped, Springer is absolutely crushing the ball and giving the offense a major boost. His homers have been deep bombs and rising line shots. He's destroying baseballs this month and making sure everyone who dropped all of their FAAB on him is getting their money's worth. In a year without players like Jose Abreu and Masahiro Tanaka, Springer would probably have the early lead in the AL Rookie of the Year race.
