Is it just me, or does it seem that Karstens would rather give a guy a swing at a ball down the middle than walk him when there's no one on base? I'm not going to knock the guy with the 2.61 ERA, but it's interesting. He simply will not walk people.

Make them earn it. Even down the middle with a little movement, you are going to get outs. I'd rather take my chances than hand out free passes.

I think hell just froze over with that suicide squeeze play. A pitcher executing a perfect squeeze play with perhaps the slowest runner on the team at 3rd base. Way to go Karstens and great call by Hurdle.

And for the 3rd consecutive appearance, Watson cant do his job. Our left handers relievers are atrocious.

Hurdle isn't one to fool around . . . wasting no time in getting Watson out of the game with the middle of Houston's order coming up.

Atrocious? Certainly not perfect, but far from atrocious.

Watson has a 3.27 ERA in 14 games and 11 Ks in 11 innings. Moskos has a 2.30 ERA in 20 games. Atrocious?

Ok good point Animal, but it drives me crazy when those two (Moskos and Watson) cannot get left handed hitters out.

No that completely sucked! I hate seeing pitchers bat. That should have been Chili Davis up there. When's the NL going to get with it!
