James is at 40+ pitches. He isn't a long reliever anymore.

This is on Martin for shltting the bed again and Hinch for not yanking James already.

Stubbs was .250/.330/.440 wRC+ of 104 in a hitters league at AAA


That's a vast improvement from Stassi if those stats carry.

Why does it sound like a home game for the Cubs??


Because our stadium is incredibly inconvenient to get to for the majority of fans and every Cubs transplant is at the game.

MMP is inconvenient to get to?

James is either unhittable or he gives up HRs. Nothing in between. His HR/FB% was 18.5% before tonight and he's 2/3 tonight. That puts him at 23.3%

I agree that James hasn't been pitching this many innings .. he's good for 1 to 2 max ..

Yeah I think at this stage it may be better to use him in a relief role..but that would mean McHugh would need to swap back in...or we sign DK, which I'm all for if the price is right

What would you have Hinch do? What's your plan on getting the next 11 outs (assuming you yank him early in the 6th).

Is much easier said then done to want to yank a pitcher after every bad pitch. You simply can't effectively manage a bullpen like that.

I wouldn't have James go more than 1, he needs a tight leash.

Go long with Harris, and then maybe an inning from Framber.

Ok. Steal 2B and get a hit. Not like Bregs hasn't knocked Fisher in from 2B before.

Well there's nobody up in the bullpen, so we are probably getting a little more James tonight.

CAPTAIN ****ING CLUTCH



Almost the EXACT same spot as first one
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

I don't know. That's not my job

But he's gotta know James is not a long reliever anymore. He has to expect him to lose effectiveness when over 40 pitches.

He wouldn't let Pressly or Osuna go that long. Guys have limits.

James was starting games just last year. So, no, I dont think anyone in the Astros organization views him as a 3 out guy.

Also, sometimes just just gotta stretch a guy a little to save the rest of your arms.
