    Out of all the pitchers we could choose to start a bullpen game, Dusty chooses Bielak.

    I'm really lost as to the usage of Javier. Because this was the perfect instance to use him. He could have given you 4 innings.

    I don't see how anyone has faith in Dusty's decision making come the playoffs. We are about to waste a championship caliber season.

    Btw, Astros best odds to make the WS from the AL

    Huh, I'm totally okay with burning Bielak on low-leverage early innings. The more the better.

    I don't see this as the perfect usage for Javier at all. He's not stretched out to go 4 innings and I'd much rather see him throw the 6th and 7th innings than the first three innings.

    West would have called catcher's interference on Castro.

    Because his head got in the way of the bat that slipped out of his hands?

    Not stretched out. 55 pitches.

    This was always to be a bullpen game.
