What good is a "solid core of young pitching", as Hahn was quoted in the Trib today...

with a horsebleep bullpen?

Yup. Danks should have been pulled following the first walk. Donnie Veal should be relegated to blowout mop-up duty until he shows he can find the plate.

It was weird seeing the batting order change on the right field scoreboard right after Rios got traded.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...Is Donnie Veal really the best they can do?

Nate Jones needs to be shown the door as well. What the heck happened to that guy.

He's actually pitched great for the last 20 outings or so; he's turned the corner and is consistently getting batters out with high heat or a nasty slider. The fact that he's able to control the slider now and throw it for strikes is the reason he's been very effective --- tonight notwithstanding.

12 wins in division, you got to almost try to be that bad.

Like Lindstrom and Axelrod are any better.

This bullpen needs an enema. Quickly.

We did trade our only good relievers, so not very surprising here. One can hope that the guys in Charlotte can do a better job when September rolls around.

I've never understood why you sacrifice with a base stealer on first when you're down 1 run. He's fast enough to score on a double, take 3 shots at it.

Ax doing what he does best. The guy's a home run machine.

And even those "good relievers" left a LOT to be desired.

Oh please, Lindstrom isn't great but he's clearly a major league pitcher. Veal is a loogy who walks every left hander he faces. It's not even close.
