And I think he can be really, good in that role.

I don't disagree with you there.

Ugh. Once again our pitchers are failing to minimize the big inning. These are the types of innings that lose games. Not that we're really in this one, but still...tough to watch.

He's a back of the rotation pitcher (probably a number 4). I'd have no issue with him being the 4th man out to the mound but to suggest he is any better than that is ridiculous blind fan boy infatuation.
Pretty dead-on here.  Lannan had a FIP over 4.5 last year, which suggested that he'd regress this year.  He'll most likely sit in the 4.5-5 range for ERA through most of his career, which is good, but as you said, not something you'd want for a guy who's anything more than a 4 starter.

Hopefully, Strasburg/ZNN/Martis end up being a good 1-3 so that he can sit there.

I wonder how many WNFF cool points Dibble just lost for saying he loves the Lerner family :lol:

This game should be called now because it's over.

I can't believe someone hasn't just straight up shamed Carpenter into being quiet until the ball falls.

And you know Ryan isn't moving another step.  This inning will end with him at second base.

great at-bat :clap:, I thought he was going to get KO'ed for sure.  Now we need Dukes to deliver, this could be the game right here.

How is it possible that Carpenter still gets excited about routine flyballs?
