    True that. Hard to keep blaming the pen when the team has only one reliable starter.

    When it comes to Oakland and Tampa, the poor will inherit the PO's. Perhaps.

    Tito looking for help from his previous team. Previous team is also looking for a lot of help.

    Get used to it. No reason to think MLB 2020 pitching will be any better and every reason to believe it will be worse.

    We want to keep looking at this through the lens of the Sox which is natural because we are in the main Sox fans and its our team. But this is an enterprise-wide problem which MLB has in large part brought on itself.

    I am optimistic that Sale will return healthy and well-rested and that Price will get that cyst in his wrist fixed and EROd will build on 2019. We need to say goodbye to Porcello. Some people loved his deal, but 3 of his 5 years under contract were atrocious. And now l, he is done. They need to pick up 1 rotation piece and at least one other serviceable healthy starter for depth.

    The big market, big money teams MIGHT and I do mean might be able to deal with this mess better as they might have the resources to simply buy up the remaining decent MLB pitching. That does not change the basic problem. MLB pitching is and has been headed straight into the crapper. Witness the woeful ERA's pitchers are generating pitching v AAA hitting.

    Add to that the simple fact that baseball is institutionalizing this nonsense by creating terms to define these bums:
    - Opener
    - now Featured Pitcher (the bum that follows the Opener who is also a BUM)

    And I am more inclined to believe MLB is going to ride this horse right into the grave as opposed to trying to turn it away from the grave. If they tried to turn it away from the grave today, it would likely be something like 3-5 years before we would see any results from that effort.
