Once again the Astros snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by blowing a 6 run lead at home. A big reason for this is Brad Millsnot making moves when he has a chance and making foolish moves late in games when he should stand pat. It was obvious that Brett Meyers was struggling in the 5th yet he got through only allowing 2 runs. Brad Mills has the opportunity to get him out of the game but instead leaves him in to allow 2 more runs. This insistence of Mills to leave pitchers in, use the same pitchers in later innings regardless of the situation and not making defensive substitutions late in games (ie Carlos Lee to the hot dog stand where he excels) is exactly why he should be fired. I had hoped that when Brad Mills came to the Astros we had a "thinking" manager. But instead we got a young Jimy Williams.
Mr. Crane!!!.....How many games will you allow him to miss-manage before you show him the door?? I hope not many and I truly hope he is your first termination as owner.
