    Familia, Soria, Jake Diekman went for a 24 year old A ball reliever, Brad Ziegler, Keone Kela, Oh all would be upgrades in late innings.

    He has played very little lately, he has to play regularly. Nunez is not the answer

    Joe Kelly's stuff fucking sucks. His FB is straight as an arrow and his breaking pitches are mediocre. The only thing he's got going for him is good velocity.

    This Houston team is douchey as fuck with the cow milking or whatever that is. I don’t like them

    Geesh I got snapped at last week when saying it was unforgivable that Dombrowski didn't acquire a deadline bullpen arm. Now a lot of folks are coming around. (To be fair I didn't help myself by saying Mazz has the same opinion.)

    Just a mix of bad luck, bad defense, meh pitching plus not quite enough on offense

    Complete team loss. Meh.

    Would love to see a rally against the latest wife beater

    Rondon was a great signing. 2/8.5. Would have been a nice pick up in the offseason.

    I too had been saying that and getting flak for it saying I was being too negative. Well, in a big spot against a playoff team the bullpen completely failed.

    1-9 RISP, Mookie was not a part of any of them.

    Get out of this half an inning and then walk it off against that POS Osuna.

    DD was blinded by the flashes of good pitching in spurts from Joke and Barnes. And Brasier looked good for a while.
    Let’s hope the starters can go deep in the playoffs.

    Thornburgh makes some real good pitches, but needs more consistency; maybe he could get there in 3weeks.

    JoKe failed his audition tonight. BFD. It’s no more than that. A little BaPiP was helpful tonight for the Astors. A lot of people are going to want to make a lot out of this night. I think that is misguided.

    Should have intentionally walked Kemp in the top of the 7th to face Marisnick. That way, we'd still feel ok about Brasier and could direct all of our ire toward Kelly and Thornburg.

    And we'd only be down 4-3 now.

    WRONG. SKY FALLING. SEASON OVER. I mean, you are acting like the Sox won the WS by getting some outs out of the gangrenous arm of Curtis Leskanic or something...

    I dunno. It has been a full-on meltdown. One different managerial decision wouldn’t have made much difference.

    Let’s get 3 here.

    That was a terrible decision, JoKe is not a high leverage bullpen arm.

    If Altuve hits that’s chopper last inning instead of right up the middle, it’s probably still 3-3.

    Agreed. Not much head's up situational hitting from Beni in big situations tonight. The Leon Moreland Nunez was especially terrible as well.

    I’ve got a great idea
    Since we didn’t trade for a 7 th or 8th inning guy tell our starters in the playoffs to throw 2 or 3 less warm up pitches an inning
    Hence an additional inning to throw
    Yes I’m drinking but I’m on to something

    Love this post bc I want to believe it, but who is going to get the big outs in this pen in oct? I don’t see anyone I trust besides Kimbrel

    Another flaw with this pen is Cora can't play matchups because every reliever outside of Kimbrel is the same pitcher. Kelly, Barnes, Hembree, Brasier. What is the difference? They are all the same guy.

    I have never seen a bullpen with less variety. Just a really poor job by Dombrowski in building a pen.
