Catching up:
The attendance is disappointing. The city supports the team very well from the confines of the couch. I think that maybe the taste of success is hammering attendance now.

That’s the price they pay for having five years of contention and then falling back.

It will get better as the year goes on, but considering how down it is now, it’s tough to see it going to real heights.

Re: boring old guys instead of vets

I said it was defensible to a point. They have careened past that point at breakneck speed.

Owings and Duda are getting far too much run.

Re: the bullpen
It looked like Zimmer lost the feel for his curve. He needs to have that to be successful in the majors. Hopefully this is a short stint.

They may have also wanted to get a “long” guy in Sparkman available for this week.

I look forward to the second half, when the pen should feature Zimmer and Staumont and Lovelady.

Fair enough. But is there anybody who needs to be on the roster from whom Gore is stealing playing time? I'd rather get rid of Owings, Duda, and pretty much any relief pitcher than Gore.

And now we are losing..again...2-2run leads blown....
petegz28 08:12 PM 04-08-2019
Tim Hill...why does he still pitch for this team?
Munson 08:19 PM 04-08-2019
Down 3, with the bases still loaded.

Munson 08:20 PM 04-08-2019
And 30 seconds later, we're now trailing by 5.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say our bullpen is still not very good.
petegz28 08:21 PM 04-08-2019
Pen has allowed 5 runs I believe already..maybe 4. And that's with only recording 1 out...
petegz28 08:22 PM 04-08-2019
Okay so the Pen is only charged with 2 runs so far this inning and both were to Hill. Bailey has been charged with 7 runs tonight
'Hamas' Jenkins 08:23 PM 04-08-2019
You guys are using Homer Bailey in a major league game? That's a hell of a tanking strategy.

Chris Owings > Homer Bailey
