Thornton wet the bed too many times this year... Reed isn't the answer IMHO, but he's cheap... nothing needs to be said about Trincoso... Crain's gone and no one close to replacing him.. hopefully the unloading of contracts can provide some relief... it has too
I really hope we use September for some tryouts for young pitchers. We need 4-5 new bullpen pitchers. I have no doubt that the poor pen is the cause of what I see is significant overuse of some starter and 2 relievers. I just think we have to use the crappy bullpen pitchers anyway, and take the losses.
