    Building a Bullpen, 2019 edition

    Not defending DD here but he did bring in Cashner (which you figure helps the pen by reducing workload), and added Eovaldi and Hernandez. So it’s not like he did *nothing*. Meanwhile he’s right that if they could get consistent starting pitching they’d be in a much better position. If they...
