Is Storen damaged goods?

I'm not generally superstitious, but I believe there's a black cloud hanging over Storen's head that will continue as long as he's a National. Time to ship him out.

Lol, I guess when the sky starts to fall everyone becomes hysterical. Already plenty of threads to post this to, but the biggest 'WTF?' of all for me is what precipitated this tonight. It's been a couple games since a 'Holy crap, Drew Storen is finished! Finished, I say!' performance from him. After tonight's game, one would think Storen would be the furthest thing from mind.

How dare he allow a run. He's only allowed one a month, not one every three weeks!!! :panic:

It just seems like every time he allows a run, we lose the game

So you're okay with losing? It's okay to allow runs, it's not okay to blow games. He's the definition of a choke artist now. It sucks since he's a nice guy but he can't be trusted anymore in a close game which takes away all of his value.

That's right, everyone knows scoring 1 run ought to be enough to win.  Pitching staff sucks.

Where in my post did I say that? Get the freak out of here with that lame ass sarcasm man. But you know what? Yeah, it is enough to win when you're holding the other team to none! Or am I wrong about that? Because the last time I checked whoever scores more runs wins and throughout the course of an 162 game season you're gonna win some 1-0 games. Drew blew the game, but some of you wusses don't like holding people accountable...that's cool for ya'll but not for me.

Drew is immune to criticism didn't you know that. His dad is popular so he gets a pass even though he is a freaking bum and will never be the same again.

Are you guys telling me we should get rid of a guy who's allowed 2ER and walked none in his last 7IP?  Who are we going to replace him with?

Someone who doesn't melt under pressure.

If we get rid of everyone who melts under pressure, who do you think our #1 starting pitcher will be, Zimmermann or Det?

Drew simply shouldn't be given the ball right now in the 8th of a one run game.   i'm really not going to try and psychoanalyze the guy - he's simple not pitching as well as Mattheus.  he should've mopped up on Saturday, not Mattheus.

Just relief pitchers. We DFA'd Lidge last season. Storen will never overcome his Game 5 collapse

I think he will, and I will bet you a Twinkie in it's original packaging.

Or you could just ignore me because I am smammyjacked tonight.
