Three straight off-speed and Bobby has no clue what’s going on

E-Rod is executing the fuck out of some of these pitches.

Nasty change-ups and cutters while down in the count.

Great now we get to watch this ugly POS foul off a bunch of pitches.

Arroyo can’t possibly be a worse 1B and is obviously a much better hitter. As long as the Kiké to Duran and Kiké to 2B transitions go smoothly, it’s a nice solution that doesn’t require giving up any assets.

Best game of the season from E-Rod? Really strong. Really good command. Between this and the A's game, I'm starting to feel like he has really turned a corner.

Both Torres and Locastro struck out with ridiculously unlevel swings and follow throughs that somehow aimed down into the ground.

He got the outs but way too many balls. He should be easily going another inning or two.

My reluctance in going to the pen so early is this stretch of games with no day off. If you're trying to nail this one down for sure, I guess you pull him now.

I tend to agree. One more inning would be huge but know he's likely coming out. My concern is that I'd rather leave him in an extra now than be forced to leave a Richards or someone in who has given up 4 runs in the 3rd inning.
