It took King and Ayala 1 inning to give up as many runs as Perez did in 6.
Okay, I know I promised on page 2 to post nothing but lolcats in this thread, but I've got to break the vow. It's becoming pretty clear that the starting pitching is not the problem. We would all be just plain in awe of the starting pitching right now if our offense scored and if our bullpen were airtight. Case in point: Odie is going to take the rap for this loss because he made one bad pitch that allowed two runs to score in the first of six innings. On most other baseball teams that would be good for a win - and I think if our offense had the balls to just score a few runs, we'd all be happy about how awesome Odie does every time he gives us a start.
Don't take this as me criticizing you, spidernat. It actually sounds like we sure as hell agree. Let's stop carping about starters: the offense is losing our games.
