and all either have bad splits (the OFers)or are limited offensive players whose value is in their glove (Cozie). The biggest problem isn't doesn't Dusty being unable to key in the right combination...its not having the right pieces to key in. This is not a Dusty problem, imo, it's on Walt to get him the players. Sometimes Walt's patience drives me batty but then again...were I GM the roster would shuffle like a dog eared deck of cards...so I guess I'll just hope some kind of LF help is forthcoming. Really though...have you been watching? You really think the 2 hole is hurting this team more than the lack of another lock down bullpen arm? Most recent losses looked like implosions to me.
Very nice first post though...did not mean to pick at ya...hope you didn't take it that way!
I did not take it any way. I agree the bullpen is another major issue. When a healthy Marshall comes back, I believe the bullpen will be much improved. I still believe the number 2 hole is vital to the overall success of this team and that Paul is the best choice available.
