While the wife is in the bathroom I did want to chime in and flip-flop around with this Paulino decision.
1: Paulino had three strong starts. Moehler has had four weak innings. Based on merit, and based on what I would hope to be the long-term goals of the Astros, Paulino should stay in the rotation.
2: That said, you're telling me that the bullpen doesn't need a solid arm who could go two or three innings?
3: Let's face it, this will be a temporary move. Someone else will go down and Paulino is your SP6.
