    And if memory serves, all three lossses can be blamed on the bullpen.

    As must as no one likes it, over the course of a season you are going to have to use average pitchers in higher leverage situations.

    Today was one of those days.

    With a 3 run lead vs. the Cubs, it wasn't a bad time to use Ondrusek. He didn't get the job done, it's on him.

    On the brighter side, maybe BP can extend his hitting streak now

    And, without looking, probably some wins then as well.

    Double switch.

    Hoover in to pitch, Lutz in left

    Dusty always leaves pitchers in too long. It's been one of his biggest downfalls.
    Hoover did start warming up during the 8th. But not at the START of the 8th.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    Not a good start. Barney doubles to left center.

    A good way to start the inning.

    Can't believe Dusty didn't have someone warming to replace Hoover and pitch to Barney. Preposterous!

    Hoover is rusty. Dusty hasn't pitched him enough.
