Might as well start warming up Doolittle.

We're still good with a slam each inning.... so that should be good enough?!?

Pete Medhurst as Jageler isn't working well.  Just got the score wrong.

Seriously, what would happen if they gave everyone in the bullpen not named Doolittle their outright release and replaced them with replacement level players? It would be better than this, no?

I think we're still recovering from giving all those replacement and replacement+ bullpens their release last year for somehow killing the team's chemistry.  Finding 3-4 replacement late inning relievers isn't as easy as it sounds and that's the problem.

Replacement level players are, by definition, easy to find.

He's usually hrumphin' about how difficult it is.     I guess 14 runs scratches that 3 X 5 card.

Let McGowin finish.  What this game needs is a save.

Does that follow to relief pitchers?  Where do you find a bunch of relievers that are capable of being above water WAR?   Doolittle is our only one at the moment.
