    Who else would it be? Paredes would be the only other pitcher we have to do it and hes just a baby. Hard to trust a young gun in a playoff situation.

    Same bs from Dusty again. Using our only closer to pitch in a non-save situation. Who’s gonna save a game for you next 2-3 days Dusty? Too old to remember what happen against Angles 10-11 days ago. Dammit!!!

    When Josh James pitch, good or bad, the Stros suffer.

    Yes.

    The guy is not that far removed from getting key outs in playoff/LCS/WS games. He doesn’t have the stamina to be a starter. He probably doesn’t have the stamina to pitch back to back games.

    After a hot start Correa really hasn’t done **** at the plate, has he? Maybe he’s due for one.

    If you can't throw consistent strikes, and he can't, then...

    We could always trade for Kenley Jansen.

    He can... and has... when given enough rest in a set role. This year, whether it was no ST, mis-cast as a starter, not getting laid, getting laid, whatever... its been different.

    It’s either mental or physical. If he’s right physically then get him in the right frame of mind to succeed.
