    Disagree. Johnny's settling down and he's got a VERY nice & low pitch count. Our bats have been on fire lately and we're starting to get a handle on Wandy. Wandy's pitch count is already over 100 and the 'stros pen has been very hittable.

    That was my train of thought also. No need.

    Day off tomorrow as well. I'm ok w/ Cueto staying in just because his pitch count is low....and he needs to learn how to pitch deep into games.

    If it was a pennant race....I think Dusty would have pulled him.

    Well he almost showed why he should have been pulled....and this is not an isolated thing. Dusty did that a few times with Arroyo and Harang.

    But i do see...the Cueto has to pitch deeper into games so it might as well be now theory.

    For me, it's more of a quesiton of which you consider more important. This one win late in a season already over, or buiding up the confidence of a young cog of the rotation for next season? I'd take the latter. Especially with him coming off his best inning of the game.

    Cueto has had an issue of being overworked. That has to be considered in to the decision process. He probably has one more start this year. It's Houston, its hot. Not the time for "teaching lessons".

    Dusty tends to script his game plan the same way, no matter who is involved.
    That really bothers me (among other things about Dusty).

    CF hits first, SS second, C eighth. SP goes 7, and if I can squeeze 8 out of him, better.

    Cueto, and Bailey still have to be coddled a bit, IMO.
    Volquez, too...if we get him back.

    Wandy was gone an inning ago. Fulchino pitched the 7th.

    BTW, nice play by Janish.

    Cueto's already missed several starts in a row a month ago. He's fairly rested. His pitch count is quite low. And the roof's closed. They're playing in A/C. It's quite cool in there. I would've been ok with it either way, but it's kind of hard to be too critical of Dusty on this one.

    D'oh! I knew that. :O)

    2b for Tejada. around 95 pitches for Johnny. He should be on a VERY short leash now.

    Berkman k'd to end the inning. Nice outing for Cueto.

    7 innings, 5 hits allowed & 5 k's. The 4 walks hurt but I think only 2 of them were deserved. The ump was VERY tight with Johnny early on.
