    Todd Coffey is a Joke!

    I know that this is an unpopular stance around this board, but i'd just like to note that todd coffey once again gave up a big hit in this game, that basically put them out of it with the weather conditions. It just seems to me that every time coffey gets put in a clutch situation he folds under pressure. I am just so tired of this bullpen not ever being able to hold anything down, it gets ridiculous after awhile. on a lighter note, victor santos looked stellar thus far!

    His pitch selection was poor, but the bags were full, right? Pretty tough spot.

    Get used to the bullpen...WK spent so much time and money on "upgrading" the pen and it doesn't look a whole lot better than last year.

    He was brought into a bad situation and got 2 hitters to put the ball on the ground. Unfortunately one of them found a hole in the infield.

    It's one game.

    Re: Todd Coffey is a Joke!

    but it wasn't one game last season. when did he fail last year? when he was put into the closers role and had some pressure put on him. as far as im concerned guys that can't perform under pressure are worthless, he's no more than a mop up guy. you could tell he was going to choke when he came in, by the way he was breathing heavy, he has the stuff to be great, but he doesn't have that killer mentality like good relievers do which makes him even more frustrating to me.

    That probably has something to do with his inclination to sprint to the mound, which I really wish he would stop doing.

    Or maybe it's a bad Mike Fetters impression.

    It was founded on the idea of intelligent discussion.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Re: Todd Coffey is a Joke!

    Coffey made DeRosa chop the ball on the ground...it found a hole. Coffey was brought into a tough spot, bases loaded, 1 out. This limits pitch selection, because the pitcher doesn't want to fall behind in the count.

    Coffey does need to start coming through in situations like this, but allowing a seeing eye single tonight, on a good piece of hitting by DeRosa isn't the end of the world.

    oh, well pardon me, i guess i considered this intellegent conversation. Personally, I considered that a crucial time in the game.

    Did you ever open a thread, read through it, and then wish you hadn't?

    EDIT: Thanks for that post, 6-4-3. I didn't see that it had been posted until I made this post and the page reloaded.
