Throw another stiff out there then if you think Nate Jones or Lindstrom is the answer. You are bound to get about the same results.
I know it is fashionable to crucify a guy making next to nothing on a major league roster for being marginally effective at his job. We're all fans and we need a way to vent our frustrations. But really, if we had a Chapman or Kimbrel in the pen do you really thing we'd be much better off? If we did he'd have been traded at the deadline for a mid-level prospect.
Sweet Jesus, look at the big problems first. Half the lineup sucks ass.
