    Just tuning in on the bus home. Valdez has a wicked curveball. Nice work.

    I’d let him go one more.

    Astros young pitchers have grown up quickly.

    Pros:
    Valdez is a legit #2
    Urquidy is a legit #3
    Tucker looks like a perennial all star candidate
    Paredes, Taylor and Javier are rookies who look like they will be roster fixtures for the next 5 years
    Suddenly our bats came alive in the postseason

    Cons:
    Verlander is done through next year
    We finished under .500

    Through 10/6, and not taking into consideration what may or may not happen the rest of this postseason, is this season a success or a failure?

    2 or 3 bad pitches all game. His evolution into a legit pitcher this year bodes well, he's always had the stuff.

    Just need Bielak, Paredes, Abreu, and James to learn from him. And Scrubb.

    Keep him in for the 7th. Have Raley ready for Olson if he gets into trouble early....

    Josh James for the 8th, Pressly for the 9th. I'd be tempted to try and get two out of James if we can extend the lead and he's pitching well.

    I would really feel better about our pen if we could replace Sneed with Verlander, Osuna, Peacock, or Joe Smith. Any of them. This is also where Francis Martes or Forrest Whitley panning out would be nice.

    84 pitches, depends on how he's feeling and what he says to Strom, Canha/Davis/Olson due up...I'd let him face Canha and then go from there, with someone ready in the pen.

    Stros should hire his Dominican sports psycholigist (this broadcast is the first I'd heard of this)

    And I'm not kidding.

    I don’t trust Josh James. Come on Framber.
