Dear Dave,

Nice job with the pen this year.

Nice job signing Sale to a long term contract when he was on fumes from August onward last year.

Nice job all around.

So, here's an idea, since he actually seems to know how to get guys out:

Make Taylor the closer, slot Barnes and Brasier back into the 7th and 8th where they belong, and go from there.

Cora, stop trying to make closer by committee happen. It's never going to happen.

That's not really the philosophy he's working under.

Any chance of winning either game in London? Will be very fortunate to not have a three-game losing streak by the time they get back.

It's time to make a call on this team and the call, from where I'm sitting, is that they just aren't good enough and any chance they had was eroded by piss poor planning heading into the season and an overworked bullpen that has never recovered.

Start working on the 2020 team.
