    Actually, it matters not what or who we think the culprit is...or are. The Dodgers and I guess any team for that fact, will find a stupid way to lose multiple times. I forgot about the hit against Floro...it's such a shit show sometimes.
    However, an RP, like him or hate him, is paid to get guys out and strand the guys the other duflus put on base.
    That is what they're paid for, and anything else comes up short of what purpose they are paid for. If all those guys score, and then that RP goes on to allow even more, imo, than that RP failed. No matter who he is pitching to. Or what his salary is.
    We'll find some more ways to blow a game or two or five, but the golden parachute of a big lead lends a gentler view of it all...but I wonder if it were Jansen or Baez and we were in a dogfight for first place, how it would all be scrutinized then.
    I'm pretty sure I know.
    Different animal.
    And yeah, Tomko had good stuff, but couldn't command it most times.
    Sorta like Joe Kelly...not as good as Kelly, but then, he didn't get paid to pitch one inning.

    yes absolutely it would be scrutinized differently
    and the big lead gives us the chance to get things in order
    if only Toomgis cared more about the team than his ego

    Ah, I must’ve missed it before but apparently Lux HAS played some 2B. He’s starting at 2B today

    He'll be back at SS next year when Seager is relegated to DH (fibromyalgia, torn vag).

    Lol sitting Kenley down as if...A) a 4 run lead is too large for him...and B) Sadler won't load the bases and Kenley comes in anyways.
