last 2 nights have been downright dreadful and it's just not been the starting pitching, it's been the bullpen too. not to mention this team is probably tired too. it's what?? 9 game westcoast trip, they are probably alittle exhausted from the time change and diffrent things but their is no excuse in what has happened the last 2 nights, I mean? wood did't even look like himself last night and he never has these type of games.
our only offense in this series to be honest has been rolen and phillips. hopefully we can take the game today but this just isn't a concern for the rest of the year but this is a major concern if we get into the playoffs. you cannot and I Repeat cannot have these type games against caliber pitching and teams, if you want to be taken seriously, you have to play like it. right now the reds don't look like a playoff team and I'm the biggest diehard and negative nancy around here. I want them to do good but, you cannot come out here and lay eggs against top teams like this if you expect to go far in the playoffs.
our pitching will get better but, I just think the law of averages was that san fran was due to get hot because they had been held pretty in check except until our series by the cardinals the series before ours. WE will be okay, the sun is still shining today and we are 2.5 games up but I think our bullpen has a major concern, starting with diffrent question marks...why is leake there??? I don't understand that move, he is not a bullpen guy, he's a starter but apparently he's lost it for the year.
I don't understand our GM. will chapman ever get the chance??? but, like I said, things will be alright but we just have to win these games that are crucial because you will be seeing this come playoff time.
