Belisario is my top choice. He's proven he can't pitch in any situation they put him in. He somehow became decent for a stretch, giving Ventura confidence in him. No reliever with as many losses as him with an ERA above 6 deserves to stick around.

The whole bullpen should be sent on the next flight to Charlotte, on second thought make it a Greyhound.

If today's performance isn't enough to get Belisario a one-way ticket to Palookaville, then he's here for the duration of the season. That was painful to watch.

We can talk all we want about the problems with Beckham, DeAza, Viciedo, etc., and they're certainly valid concerns. But this bullpen alone is responsible for trashing this season. The only ones I'd even remotely consider bringing back are Petricka and Putnam. The rest of them need to be flushed down the ****ing toilet.

I would hope so. Ridiculous!

Enjoy some major TBGR snarkiness. UGH.

Actually Guerra has about the same stats as Putnam only in about 10 less games. But I think if we give it a month, all three of them will get exposed as well. It is the bullpen coach, Bobby Thigpen, that needs to go.

Belli's got sumthin' wrong. Remember when he came in for a one run save and wound up with 1st and 3rd no out after the LF Thing and RF Thing dropped fly balls and pitched out of it? There's sumthin' wrong.

Worst pen I've ever seen.

Any fan who stuck around for the 8th and 9th should be given free tickets to the game of their choice plus free parking.

My At Bat app just notified me Thompson is being sent down with a corresponding move to be announced tomorrow. Meanwhile, Belisario remains here.

Most Major League managers after this fiasco would be really pissed, but not Robin, he simply says, "put it behind you and go get' em tomorrow!"

Really...???

Now I know how Cub fans feel, having a bullpen you EXPECT to blow leads left and right. An average bullpen puts this team above .500. Ventura gets a lot of the blame, but what do you expect him to do when he gives the game to the bullpen. It's like pick your poison on who's gonna blow the game today. Had a shot to sweep the Twins and blew it.

I did. It went from painful to ridiculous pretty quickly. At the end, you almost had to applaud the Twins for their brutal efficiency in destroying our bullpen and making a mockery of our defense (Alexei overrunning the pop fly to left was downright comical on top of being extremely pathetic).

Just sad that I sat through all that rain to watch us implode.

He may be at the helm of the Sox but by no means is he an MLB manager.
