At this point I'm just glad it's been fun for this long. Worrying about getting to and killed in the playoffs is just not going to make me lose sleep. This team has holes throughout the whole lineup, the starting staff, and the bullpen.

It's just not a good enough team to worry about in the playoffs.

Even if they somehow win this game, they absolutely wasted a great 7 inning start by Homer that basically gave the bullpen a day off. With so many days until the next off day, something like this has a horrible ripple effect.
