Really stupid to lose this game. Shawaryn v. lefties an unforced error. Vazquez can’t squeeze. Brasier soiling his pants. Get it back.

Yeah, they need help. They haven’t been bad, overall, but holy shit they need help in the bullpen. I don’t know where the fuck it’ll come from but Jesus Christ find it. I don’t care if you have to drag Papelbon’s insane ass out of retirement or reanimate the corpse of Rod Beck.

This season now lies squarely on DD's shoulders. If he does not address the bullpen prior to the trade deadline (after going all offseason not doing so) this team missing the playoffs will be his fault.

The only person with less confidence in Ryan Braiser than me, is Ryan Braiser.
Awesome. I saw John Entwistle perform back in 1996 at the old Mama Kin Music Hall on Landsdowne. My line after the show, and for years since, was "The only person drunker than me at the John Entwistle show was John Entwistle."

Barnes being bad is a real problem now. He was great the first 2 months or so but now he's walking a ton.
I’m surprised his arm hasn’t fallen off. The problem isn’t that there is no talent in the bullpen. The problem is that there are only 3 trustworthy guys right now and sooner or later that shit’ll catch up to you.

It's going to be 6 up, 6 down, isn't it.
Jays get one more in the ninth, we get one back in the bottom half. Trailing 9-7, we manage to get runners on 2nd and 3rd with nobody out. Next three ABs: pop out, K, fly out just shy of the warning track.

Or maybe he's a headcase, pretty much like he always has been.
If he were a headcase he wouldn’t have been so good in October last year. It’s one thing to be pissed off at his performance today but the whole psychoanalysis shit we like to do here can go away forever.

Why not? These guys can have nice stretches but for the most part he doesn't have the make-up to be a hi-lev guy. Look at JoKe. He was awesome for parts of last year too but that was the exception to the rule for him too.

I disagree with the head-case analysis. He has been overworked. I understand entirely why they didn't want to pay for Kimbrel, but they needed to get more experienced relief pitching.

I saw The Repacements at The Living Room in Providence in 1987 and they were too drunk to play. They just sat on stage with their feet in a kiddie pool.

I forget. Is Giles a bad pitcher and shitty human being who was traded for another shitty human being, or is he simply a bad pitcher who was traded for a shitty human being?
