A Thought.....

I was thinking about it, and I have come to the conclusion that I believe our bullpen will be the strongpoint of this club down the stretch run. Once Benitez comes back and Mota settles back into his setup role, that's arleady two automatic innings you can trust from the pen. We are all in agreement there, 7 inning game for the starters.


Well, I'm here to offer it as a 6 inning game for the starters. Why you ask? Is Seanez really that good? Well, I don't know. I'm not going to tell you he's the messiah because I have never seen him pitch. But I do think it will be cut down to a 6 inning game by someone else we acquired via trade, Billy Koch.


Even before the deals started Billy has settled comfortably into his non-closing role in the pen. Look at his performace line in July: 12 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 12 K, 13 GBO, 1.50 ERA. Not bad if you ask me for a month. Since having an ERA of 9 after his first game with the Fish, it's down to 3.60. He still has issues with walks, but pitching him the 7th will only help that. Plus, you have Mota and Benitez's hoses ready to take over at the first sign of trouble. This can only help.


I don't know what Seanez can bring. But with Mota being added to that "Shadow Looming" with Benitez in the 8th and 9th innings, respectively, Koch can become that more dominant. Hitters will press more knowing the automatics are coming, and that will make Koch more dominant as hitters are more agressive. Add that to him already showing a BIG sign of improvement, and I think we have a winner.





Game f***ing Over
