3-unit Play Take #968 Texas Rangers over Houston Astros (3:05pm EST) As we've shown already, we're going to be fading the Astros frequently in the early going. The hype meter is at an all-time high in Houston. Gerrit Cole will make his Astros debut this afternoon and I'm not particular high on the right-hander. He's gotten worse in two straight seasons and doesn't seem like he has everything between the ears be a dominating pitcher. He's a tremendous thrower and maybe the Astros will get him back on track, but I need to see it first. The Rangers go with Mike Minor, who is back to being a starting pitcher after a successful stint in the bullpen last year with the Royals. Minor posted an excellent 2.55 ERA in 65 appearances while striking out 10.2 batters per nine. He's not going to up numbers that good as a starter, but he doesn't need to. I like Texas at this price.
