    Lowly? They have a better record than us against a much tougher division.

    I don't see them losing every game to the Pirates.

    Woody Williams......how much are the Astros paying this guy?

    When he pitches I feel the chances of winning are about the same level as Tim Redding.

    To be fair, Lamb hasn't been bad against lefties this year - he's actually 4 for 7, so it probably was a situation where the benefit of using Loretta there is just not very much. Lamb against a lefty is probably better than anyone on the bench against a righty.

    Though Loretta batting where Ensberg hit may have been a better bet given Ensberg's terribleness.

    Where were you during his last 4 starts? Prior to today, he'd pitched 5 quality starts in 8 total starts, including the last 4 straight.

    I agree... don't really have a problem with Lamb. I'm just saying if Garner is desperate to use Ensberg somewhere, it should have been against a lefty pitcher (who's insertion was pretty obvious given Bochy warming up a lefty all inning).

    Yeah, the old quality starts stat....where it is ok to give up 4 runs in 7 innings.....

    Lower expectations I guess.

    5.10 ERA now, Yea, he is doing GREAT. :rolleyes:

    The top of the lineup for the 'Stros is 0-12 tonight. Just imagine if we could have gotten a few runners on for Carlos.

    Giants are 20-5 at MM park....probably 21-5 after tonight, that is PATHETIC...

    The Astros at home this year have been well below par....they need to protect that home turf.

    So much for 1-6, eh?

    Yeah, I think he's doing exactly what the Astros expected - give them decent starts with a few blowups here and there. Over the course of the season, I expect a mid-to-upper 4's ERA, which is about what is expected of a #3 or #4 starter.
