    Part of the problem...is they run the same type of pitchers out there every night.

    A staff mostly junk ball pitchers with average stuff at best doesn't exactly leave much for the other team to adjust to...


    Harang, Burton, Bray, Arroyo, and Weathers could be considered exceptions. Harang is a horse, he throws hard, locates well, has good stuff, and has a deceiving delivery. Burton can throw heat and mix in off-spead stuff, Bray is a lefty, with a funky delivery with good stuff, and throws decently hard....Arroyo, when on, has great movement and nasty offspeed stuff, and Stormy doesn't have great stuff, but he knows how to use it effectively, and get people out. The ONLY time Stanton is effective is if his curve ball is curving...other than that, he just gets lit up like a fire cracker.

    Everybody else on this staff is basically the same....junk, average at best stuff, average at best location and movement.

    They need to assemble a different arsenal, with different style of pitchers. Not everybody can be the same. Some more hard throwers couldn't hurt either....having 1 in there isn't enough.

    Hopefully Salmon can get his control controlled...because he can be effective.

    Livingston doesn't have it, at least at this point...

    Hopefully, one of our Left-handed bats can generate through a trade a legitimate #3 starter. Keep in mind that a solid #3 starter's ERA will be in the high 3's.

    Cantu doesn't do OBP. But he does RBI.
