    Nahhhhhhh.....what the hell am I talking' about!

    But why with the only time of the game with no men on base.

    Boy that Roger's OF has remained slow as molasses since they replaced it. Does not seem to have gotten a lick quicker.

    I remember the first artificial turf baseball parks. The ball just scooted.

    And that is that.

    We've gotten the first or second man on, every inning. multiple men on base many innings. Men in scoring position with 0, 1 or 2 outs.

    We can't buy a key hit.

    One swing of the bat by Jay and bam- 2 runs.
    Whitlock groves one down the middle !!!

    What a bullshit loss that was. Chapman should have been rung up on the previous pitch. Springer got the same bullshit call in his favour last week and got a GWH. Blue Jays have horseshoe luck.

    Whitlock hasn't been the same since the starter experiment. I hope he can reset for next year in the bullpen or else that was a cluster fuck of a move

    Except for Martin, Bello, Devers, Turner and a couple others, there's really nobody on this team I'd miss if they weren't here next season. I wouldn't miss Cora either.

    Pitching the ninth inning is challenging and tough, as both Swanson and Whitlock found out. It is an entirely different atmosphere.
    Old school is good school.

    I'm not sure if part of it was the serious injury, but he should know and be told, he will be in the pen 100%, next season.

    Let's hope a reset works, because he used to have the nasty stuff needed to be a highly effective RP'er.

    No reason to bring back Kenley next season. He'll just have more aches and pains than he did this season.

    I'm happy bringing back these guys:

    C: Wong
    1B: Casas
    2B:
    SS:
    3B: Devers
    LF: Abreu
    CF: Rafaela
    RF: Dugo
    DH:
    SP: Bello
    RP: Jansen, Martin, Houck, Whitlock, Crawford

    I'm okay with
    C2: McGuire
    2B: Urias & Reyes
    SS: Story
    LF: Duran, Refsnyder (v LHPs ONLY)
    DH: Yoshida
    SP: Pivetta as the #5 only, Sale as the #6 only
    RP: Wink, Schreiber, Bernardino, Murphy, Kelly, Joely

    I may be the pink hat optimist, but to me we are three extremely major players away from being a playoff team, assuming normal health:

    SP1
    SP2
    SP4

    If we could also add a LH RP'er and RHB OF'er, I'd think we'd be a favorite to make the playoffs. I know, saying "just" 3 major SP'ers away is like asking for the world, but it is only 3 slots.

    It’s just a countdown to ending this humiliating season.
