    Can’t imagine he doesn’t get called up and Contreras and maybe dubin get sent down- for too many pitches even if not ineffectiveness.

    Yeah, about time to give dumbass another chance, he seems to be next in line for the bullpen scrub rotation.

    They need to do whatever it is they have to do to ensure guys like Montero and Contreras never pitch for this team again. Whitley is probably one answer.

    With as much time and effort as has been put into Whitley, I don't know how they don't put him out there. His stuff is A+ but his head and body don't cooperate. Maybe time with real major leaguers will unlock something special or at least, serviceable. Then again, maybe his pigheadedness destroys our current successful chemistry. So who knows, but I'm willing to try it. If it doesn't work... cue Robert Ford. SEE YOU LATER!!!

    That clubhouse is as fortified as it comes. If he wants to act like a little piss ant, hed get lined out pretty quick. Consider me on the 'lets try' wagon. We need to get something out of him for hemming up a roster spot for so long.

    He's been so disappointing.

    I expected Whitley to be the next great Stros pitcher. Then I realized he wasn't listening to Strom.

    He can't be worse than Contreras, Dubin, Hernandez, and Montero...
