With a day off everyone should be available in a close game against a terrible team unless there is an injury issue.
I forgot about the day off. So it should have been Strahm, Schreiber and Houck. One of them goes two innings. Cora has been having a down year.

A quick question for those in the know...Who's the best reliever in Wooster and is he any good?
Do they need to be good? I'd settle for "can throw the ball in the general vicinity of the zone".

I still can't believe Cora trusts Robles in a close game. He used to be effective, but not for a long while now. Bring him into a game where there is a 7 or 8 run lead if you are tying to get him back on track.

When is Taylor supposed to be coming off the IL? Winkowski might be wonderful in the bullpen if we didn't need him to start. (I realize I don't know enough to answer your question.)

Dean Chance, before he died in 2015. He won the Cy Young in 1964, albeit as a starter.

On the former, very soon I believe. As for the latter, I'd rather he stay in the rotation ATM. I think he would be a fine addition to the pen, but being stretched out as a starter it might be a while before you can use him in back to back games or even 2 out of three games.

I don’t think he really trusts him, he’s been used in low leverage situations. It was the 6th inning against the bottom of the order.

It’s really difficult to get 13 outs when you only trust 3 or maybe 4 guys.

It almost feels like Cora is letting these shitty relievers reveal their suck so bloom will do something

(Not saying that’s happening but it feels that way)
