Josh Reddick saves Astros with great plays | MLB.com

Gardner, no slouch on the basepaths, ran from home to third base in 11.24 seconds, his third-fastest time this year—just not quite fast enough.

Astros outfielder Josh Reddick discusses his key defense in Game 2, including a leaping catch at the wall and an outfield assist.

“I was just a little out of whack running from second there,” Gardner said. “I still caught the inside of the bag, but I wasn’t able to push off it like I needed to.

“I knew I was out by three or four inches. I slid to the outside of the base and knew it was going to be a close play, but it was a good relay throw.”

In the same way he was stationed for Gardner, Reddick played Headley in the gap, allowing him to take an ideal route to the wall.

“That was an awesome play,” Astros left fielder Marwin Gonzalez said. “Who knows what was coming after that? He’s one of the best outfielders in the [Majors]. What can I say about our defense? The way we’ve been playing, it’s incredible.”

Josh Reddick: the Astros are “down in the dumps” about the team standing pat at the trade deadline

Still, there are many who believe that the Astros failing to land a starting pitcher such as Justin Verlander, Sonny Gray or Yu Darvish bodes ill for the team’s chances and these folks have spent the past two weeks feeling kind of deflated. They’re not just fans, either. Some of the disappointed folks are Houston Astros players.

Astros outfielder Josh Reddick was on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM yesterday and he had this to say about the front office’s lack of moves:

“I think deep down everybody in that clubhouse knew we were going to make some moves to make us a really great team to a team that put us over the edge, especially with all the moves you see moving around the league. It’s nothing against our guys, we are a great team, but any time you can make your team better you feel like should have the opportunity to do that and take full advantage. I think deep down, we all were, I don’t know if you want to say disappointed or upset, I guess we were just kind of down in the dumps because we feel like we had a pretty good shot at getting somebody to help this team get over that hump to where we needed to be.”

The Astros could still make a trade — Justin Verlander has cleared waivers and could be had, albeit for a hefty price in terms of prospects, salary obligations or both — but I find it odd that a player has the same viewpoint of fans who think a strong team MUST make a big deadline deal.

Josh Reddick Remains the King of the Unclutch

Josh Reddick is having a career year at the plate, but he continues to struggle in high-leverage situations. It’s part of a near-decade-long trend that both lacks a clear explanation and calls into question what the Astros outfielder’s true value is.
