So he was pitching so good that you wanted to get him out of there...can you imagine how Dusty would be skewered if he had said this?

"Houston starter Jordan Lyles was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the game. He lasted six innings, allowing four hits and three runs with three walks and four strikeouts.
"He threw the ball well," Mills said. "He threw the ball so well that we wanted to get him out of there with a lead."

Really? No Dusty bashers -- and there are plenty of them on this board -- can confirm or deny that this would have gotten him crucified? I think I know why there is one big "no comment".

Then their manager does stupid things too. Houston's message board was probably as frustrated with that comment as we can be with Dusty's on occasion. Stupid is stupid.

And I still haven't heard a comment by a manager as dumb as Dusty's 'bases clogging' quote.

I find it difficult to believe that people want to try to justify something by pointing out that someone else did the same thing. You wanna know why there was no reaction on this board? Because nobody on this board cares what the Astros manager does or says. This is RedsZone, not NLCentralZone or NLManagersZone. Furthermore, when do two wrongs make a right? Another manager says something dumb and this somehow is justification for Dusty saying dumb things?

Ned Yost recently "We are not playing poorly at home, we just haven't won any games"
0-10, may qualify as playing poorly?

Taking a rookie out with that stat line is perfectly reasonable and probably the best option, but that's a pretty bad choice of words. There are two things that fans never want to hear out of managers: reliance on outdated statistical ideas and making a management decision based on anything other than trying to win the World Series.
