Springer knows his place in Astros lore

While we're all hoping that it happens, George Springer knows he's not Jeff Bagwell:

"I can never put myself in the same sentence as Jeff Bagwell since he's an all-time great. It's nice to know that a player has gone down to Houston from Connecticut and put together one of the greatest careers any ballplayer could ever have. It's up to me to establish my own legacy and hopefully I can follow a similar path by making a significant impact for the Astros over a long-term period."
