Even though the Rockets are currently the #1 seed in the West, their TV ratings are down 20%. James Harden's colossal collapse in the playoffs last year might have something to do with that, but this is a different team. If fans aren't watching the Rockets now after winning their 16th straight game against the Thunder last night, you have to wonder if they'll ever warm up to this year's team.

The Astros have now lost five straight games and the starting pitching and bullpen have let them down over that stretch. Cristian Javier was recently demoted to help him build up his stamina so that he can pitch deeper in games as the team's 5th starter when the schedule demands a 5-man starting rotation. But in the meantime, the Astros could desperately use his help out of the bullpen, and he's likely headed for relief duty when Framber Valdez returns from injury anyway. So this begs the question, is a role as the team's fifth starter the best way to maximize Javier's abilities? Check out the video to find out.
