forget lineups, what can we do about the pen?

I don't care when he pitches

 

To lose an 11 inning game where your two best relievers don't even warm up is horrendous pen management

You all don't understand!

 

You're supposed to use up all your WORST pitchers in the pen first in extra innings!

 

Didn't you read the rulebook?

 

McKeon will NEVER USE MOTA OR JONES until everyone else has been used up.

 

NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER.

 

GAYNESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look, I understand going to Nate. You bring in the long guy to see if he can chew up innings. However, when he's out in a tough situation, what the deal?

 

Perisho, by tradition, is the logical next pick for McKeon. Even though lefties are crushing him, he's the lefty "specialist". So ok, Jack, you played by the book until there.

 

But where the hell is the Fireman when the fire sits 90 feet away with no outs?!?

You should use your best pitchers first though, let Jones and Mota take the 9th, 10th, and maybe the 11th, then put in Nate. To lose a ball game and have your best two options still waiting in the pen kills me.

that was frustrating as hell because Bump had a perfect double play waiting & I was going to give a big sigh of relief & praise him for throwing 2 nice innings.

 

Then he has to go & do that. Can't call it anything but a major choke job. I'm still pulling for him though because he gets ground balls. Just can't throw apparently, lol.

 

Perisho I don't even know where to start....

Perisho is going to get beatdown by one of the other pitchers one of these days. He comes in usually with a guy on already and walks the lefty he was brought in to face and is then pulled. Usually the next pitcher gets out of the inning or he gives up the first guy's run only... net result is Perisho's ERA stays the same and he is the reason another guy's ERA goes up. It keeps happening.

 

11 walks in 13 IP :plain

I guess, but I can see why he went to Nate. I don't entirely disagree.

 

But Dammit what the hell is Mota paid for if he's not getting used in the situations he was brought in for!

I don't know maybe Jack is thinking about tomorrow. Leiter is pitching tomorrow so the pen will be used a lot.

 

I hate it if that's the reason, got to focus on the game at hand

If that's the reason, why save your closer and your setup man and then use your two long relief guys?
