Radke pitched well.

I know that seems counterintuitive since he gave up 8 hits 2 homeruns and 4 runs in 6 innings last night. But would those homeruns been even hits in any other park. I think they would have been easily caught in the Dome and would have been hits probably only in Boston.

The LF porch in Houston is ridiculoulsy short and makes long flyouts turn into homeruns. Then again he did give up 1 long drive to CF which could have been a homerun in the Dome. the CF has just the opposite effect and flyballs go there to die.

Houston would not be good park for a flyball pitcher like Radke to play his home games in.

Why can't managers juggle their rotation better to make the pitchers who are better suited for different ballparks pitch in those ballparks. In this situation it would be difficult but generally why couldn't his be done?
