    Reading the comments starting last page is so depressing. Multiple people called exactly what happened. Does Dusty know oppo managers are allowed to pinch hit?

    what a joke.

    Can we just cut Raley like how we got rid of Straw so Baker can't do this crap. We have so many good pitchers now and Dusty keeps doing this crap

    Once again, this wasn't predictable at all.

    It's almost like Dusty doesn't understand the 3-batter relief pitcher rule.

    Yeah, not for Raley tho. It’s on Click at this point for allowing this to continue. This crap could cost the Astros everything. The division isn’t over by a long shot.

    I’ll put in Raley to protect a one run lead...said no one ever (except Dusty).

    I guess we’ll see Raley on the playoff roster.

    I wouldn’t say that. I like Graveman and Yimi. Raley not being cut by now is one of the biggest mysteries tho.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that he didn't tell Raley to do that. "Be careful with him and go after the next guy" would be my guess.

    It’s criminal that he doesn’t.

    There is no role for a LOOGY on any team in 2021. If you don’t trust him for the subsequent hitters or potential pinch-hitters, you can’t bring him in.

    I seriously think Dusty might need to hang up the cleats and ride into the sunset. He has contributed to this game and owes it nothing else. Your a good guy Dusty but you can’t coach anymore !!!!

    Like I said earlier… good piece of hitting by Moore on a down-in pitch that he fisted out.

    Still caught too much of the zone and Raley doesn’t have the type of stuff that can outlast a good piece of hitting.

    I hate Brooks Raley. What I really hate is the inevitability of it all. This game is like just about every other game the Astros have lost this year. They can't get a clutch hit, strand a boatload of runners and their relievers sh!t the bed. Rinse. Repeat.

    Graveman I like but the verdict is still out on Yimi for me.
