Some of us said earlier this season that Stubbs had way too many PAs last year. The result was pretty disastrous. It took a long time, but now at least Dusty is spotting his starts, which makes sense. Why they chose a lefty game in Houston to sit him is another story.
Heisey's two homer game probably helped him get the start tonight. Play the hot hand.
Cards with Wainright getting pummeled again in DC, 5-0.
