Why would you trust him in a tight game out of the pen which he is not accustomed to?
My 2 cents is that he starts or he sits at home.
This.

I wouldn't.  I wouldn't have him in the postseason roster.  But the Astro don't always listen to me.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Yesterday's outing was especially bothersome and maddening when it comes to the postseason roster decision.  He pitched tentatively and go hit hard then buckled down the 2nd two innings but still looked mediocre with long counts and not really fooling anyone.

Urquidy’s excellent start tonight certainly doesn’t make Hinch’s choice any easier. Or maybe it does.

I think it became much easier. If Miley showed any sign of getting outs, it would be different.

It really sucks because Miley was such a pleasant surprise all season.

I feel bad for Miley. Most of the season he looked like a solid #3 and then when Greinke came he really looked solid in the #4. But,

It must have been hard for Miley to watch last night's game and see his chances for a playoff roster spot evaporate. Urquidy's performance last night slammed the door on Miley. It is sad to see his season end. Also, he was cruising toward a juicy contract next year and that looks unlikely now.

I think at this point, his confidence is shot and once the confidence is gone, you're done

This seems most likely.

Before the collapse Sparks commented that for guys like Miley it can be tough to put guys away with 2 strikes.   "Hard to get them living on the edges" or something like that.

Miley is one of those guys that, when he's good, he lets guys get themselves out.

Dallas Keuchel is perilously close to being like Miley. I noticed that Keuchel is 8-8 3.75 going into his next start. I don't know how big of a contract Keuchel & Co. will be expecting for this year's effort.

I don’t think it’s just trusting his stuff. These guys have been teeing off like they know what’s coming.

I know. He said he reviewed film and did not think he was tipping pitches. Sure seems like it though.

There's tipping and there's also recognizing it out of the hand.

Thursday the 2 rbi hit  came after the batter fouled off several 2 strike pitches and Wade let one leak over the plate.

This. This right here. This is nothing more than regression to the mean. Wiley has to be perfect in order to be successful because he lacks that out pitch as well as velocity. I'm telling y'all-Keuchel is not going to be far behind him.
