Tonight Eaton can convince me

To wait one more week to see if he is for realsie reals.  I have no idea what to expect from this perennial  underachiever.  Currently he is 0-0 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP.  His K/BB ratio is pretty poor at 7/6 however.  I think tonight is the perfect test.  Houston is about league average offensively (maybe a bit worse) and is the type of team I want my Adam Eaton to succeed against. 

If he gets lit up by the Mets or Braves, I can deal with that because I don't expect him to be able to beat those teams.  It is the Houston Astros, the LA Dodgers and the Cincinatti Reds that I want him to succeed against.  And if he can throw in a win against an upper tier team, then all the better.

I actually expect another decent game from Eaton.
