    We don’t have a 8th or 9th inning arm.

    Best team ever my ass.

    Kimbrel blows. He has for a while. This is problematic.

    I’m beyond annoyed at our entire bullpen.

    They did navigate 2013 with Breslow slurving his way to greatness and Tazawa holding on for dear life.

    But they also had an assassin in the 9th.

    Kimbrel, Kimbrel, Kimbrel. A .161 hitter just beat you.

    It's very fucking simple. If you fucking walk people, eventually someone is going to get a hit, and the other team will score runs. If you force them to actually get fucking hits, they usually can't string enough together to score runs.

    This team is going to win 108 games and lose in the playoffs because they have NO pen.

    DD speciality.

    I’m sorry I ever said I wanted a pen of flamethrowers. All of these morons throw arrow-straight fastballs, can’t spot it for shit, and never have a functioning off speed pitch.

    ...and we were complaining about not using Kimbrel in the 8th. This bullpen is toast.

    Kimbrel’s zone% down to 37.3%. Absurdly low. There is just no reason to swing.

    Now he can’t use the awful curve with the runner at 3rd. That’s a good thing

    I think the league really has adjusted to his stuff and that is part of the decline.
