That's a damn good strike out to walk ratio. Not a bad ERA either considering who he's playing for.

Some guys just are better off and perform better on teams that aren't very good.

I have no hate in my heart for the guy that won the 3rd game of the world series for the sox.

He was better than boone logan.

The worst pitchers in the AL look good in the ***** NL.

Marte has let in a very high number of inherited runners above and beyond the ones he let on base. He has settled down a bit from a terrible April but is a coin flip vs. Jeff Nelson or other 11th - 12th men on the staff.

How soon you all forget that Damaso was the best LH reliever in baseball a few years ago. I'll always remember that. He was lights out.

Too bad he could never close. It was just one of those things. Politte is the same way.

I'm glad that Damaso and Viz are doing fairly well. (especially Viz at this point) The changes we made were for the better, and those two did contribute to winning the title for the Sox. So good luck in Pitt & Arizona.

I remember Michael Tucker taking him deep to win a game in 2002 at KC. Then there was opening day 2003 in KC with that meltdown. Walked the bases loaded in Boston. The list goes on...

:rolleyes: And Mark Buehrle once lost a game. What's your point?

I agree and am afraid that Politte has inherited the "2005 Damaso" crown for this year. No doubt Kenny has noticed this "gap" and is working on the problem even as I type.

And no mention of his pathetic 1.6 WHIP.

I don't hate Marte, it's just that he failed the "he doesn't make me throw up in my mouth every time he comes in" test pretty much all of the last half of 2005.

Starting pitchers always lose games. If a starter goes 18-14, that's considered a pretty good year. Damaso was way too inconsistent to be trusted, and someone who can't be trusted out of the pen can't be effective. I just named three meltdowns off the top of my head without thinking twice. Can you easily name three Buehrle meltdowns as quickly?
