How about the relief corps tonight? Fantastic job, & it's about time they came through for the team. Big effort tonight from Howard, Oliver, Manzy, & Mando.

 

and talk about turnover, it looks like this is a new group that could be used here...

 

instead of perisho, phelps, bump, borland, and neu...

 

it's Manzanillo, Oliver, Howard, Benitez, and now Koch!

 

hey, keep shuffling them 'til you find something that works.

I like the current crop of relievers we have. Hopefully they can keep up the good work. Oliver has done wonders in his new role. I agree with Rosenthals assessment that Howard will be a viable option in the set-up role. Benitez is just lights out. Koch if he comes back to form is nasty and Manzanillo is just crazy.

I think our bullpen is set, and if our starter go out and give us the 6 or 7 quality innings that we know they are capable of, we are going to be winning alot of 3-2 and 1-0 games.

Haha.. I remember not long ago, we were winning a few games and everyone said the bullpen is set and blah blah. It almost immediately imploded and a shitstorm rained down. At least this is basically a new pen though... there is hope..

 

Heard that out of the opening day roster, only 2 out of the bullpen were still there at today's game. With Koch, it could be only 1. Hah.

They won one game and now the bullpen is set? What a f'n joke! The bullpen has won a lot of games this year....been in first place most of the year. I'm not worried though...I know you guys will be rippin them a new one as soon as they blow the next game!!

The bp worries were not the guys who were there but McKeon who is an old fart who has been portrayed as a great guy. Time will tell but this team doesn't have the same spirit as last year.

Clearly you didn't watch the game last night.

 

If you could have seen the excitement in the team when Treanor got that hit, you'd have a difficult time making that statement. I was surprised at how excited everyone was. They were jumping around like they had just won the division series. It was really fun to watch.

periosho doesnt suck...against lefties....

 

 

 

I agree - when used properly Perisho is an effective lefty specialist. He got some critical outs against Abreau and Thome earlier in the season. He will undoubtedly be called upon to face one or two lefties in critical situations as the season progresses.

We have threads where we rip them, but they did well tonight.

when the bullpen pitches bad all we do is talk bad about them and even talk about trading some of them...

 

but when they do good all we do is talk good about them and forget all the bad things that we said about them before...

 

its on and off, were either very positive or very negative...
