Tie game I wondered if Musgrove would have gotten the ball first.  I'm not saying he would have been great but has anyone been worse than Giles?

Pretty much none of the regular relievers. The call after Morton should have been to McHugh to finish out the game.

Wasted a valiant effort by Morton tonight. The stench from the offense was putrid and Giles went out on the hill to toss batting practice to the dodgers.

That's what I want to know. He pitched good in his appearance against the Yankees.

That’s what I’ve been wondering. That game in the ALCS didn’t earn him any faith? Not to mention how he finished out the regular season.

I would literally rather see anyone else than Giles going forward. Even Liriano. Fuck it, if JD Davis was on the roster even him.

When Springer went yard, I thought we had a great chance.  But the plan seemed to go to the regular bullpen roles --- that was always destined to be a risky strategy.   

I do think we can look at McCann, and be thankful for his ability to get the best of out the staff.  Tonight was a gem by Charlie.

Forsythe doesn't get that hit and maybe the dojers keep pressing.

I definitely agree that he should not pitch again until spring training. Will he ever be a closer? Remains to be seen. He has to learn how to pitch. To me he seems to just come in and sling it. Too soon to talk about next year but we may have to develop other options going forward.

As much as I've never been a fan of his I'd still pitch him this series.  It would have to be no later than the 8th, preferably earlier.  Never in the 9th or extras unless no one is left.

If he doesn't pitch again though if you're the GM how can you keep him?

When this is over, if they don't invest in the bullpen in the off season they're not as good of a front office as I think they are.  I know in the past they've had trouble getting people to come to Houston.  That can't be the case now.

I’m sure in a few weeks we will hear that it turns out Giles had some injury or other - “rest, no surgery, he should be ready for Spring Training” in an attempt to salvage some of his psyche and/or value for next year.

But by no means should they proceed as if he’s the closer.

Well they could have won with just the one hit.

I saw a stat that said the Astros had 10 batted balls of 95mph or higher but only the 2 hits.  Balls hit that hard are more often hits than outs 80% of the time.  Some bad luck there.

Quote from: AJ Hinch in the Thursday Chronicle
And I did say Giles did play a pivotal role, not in giving up the run but in the outs he did get. That's part of my job that I feel good about. ... I think Ken Giles is going to get another save in this series. I think he's going to get some really big outs. I think when the crowd is standing in this ballpark over the next couple of games, if we can have the lead and he's the right matchup, he's going to get the last out. He's done it

Sure, it's possible to get no hit and win. But run that strategy out there and see how it works. A couple of well struck balls found leather, but by and large the Astros did not have good at bats. They were patient, got ahead in the count, and its like they went into protection mode, like they were down 0-2. Lots of weak swings. Didn't help that Wood was getting 4-6 inches up, down, in and out.
