    I could see that but he’s being starting all year. Why change up the whole routine a week out from the playoffs? If you want him to pitch 5 innings max that’s fine. Just seems dumb to change up the whole routine at this point.

    Good, maybe take that stick out from behind the plate and make him a full time DH that can split time at 1B and backup C.

    RF: Mookie
    SS: Corey
    3B: JT
    DH: Big Will
    CF: Bellinger/Kike
    LF: Pollock/Joc
    1B: Muncy/Rios
    2B: CT3/Lux
    C : Ruiz/Barnes

    I don't think there is room for Beaty to get meaning playing time on this team anymore.
    He should have been traded because he has value to teams.
    Just not teams with so many big white stiffs that have to play LF/1B/DH.

    Because all year has not been all year this year. Its only been like a quarter of the year and split up.
    Proved it again last night.
    4 innings where he is masterful
    then he has some trouble gives up a HR
    then next inning gets in trouble again gives up another HR
    dave did the right thing and yanked him
    once the hitters see him twice he has to have perfect location on his pitches to succeed
    and he does until he doesnt
    one mistake against these types of guys in those situations will result in home runs because they are going for the big swing
    that is a glaring weakness in his game right now
    and one they want to steadily improve in the offseason when big games are not on the line

    I think we’ve done pretty well in bp games but Jesus can Mitch White or someone get a spot start?

    I get we got a division race but it can’t be any worse than having bullpen games.

    just seems a bit shortsighted to have a bullpen game just before leaving on a 4-day bender anywhere, let alone coors fucken field

    Technically it was a bullpen game with Gradesol starting, but with May going 5.1 (right around what he usually throws) the pen usage ended up being less than a pen game.

    Didn't particularly like the strategy of saving May until later in the game. What if the pen starter shits himself and puts the team in a hole? (no homo) You fall behind early in an important game with your best available arm on the pine.

    There's some nerd logic there somewhere, but it's lost on me.

    Like @fsudog21 said, it wasn't really a bullpen game yesterday. May went 5.1, so the actual pen usage was normal. The good news is Jansen got the day off, so he should be available.

    It was a joke. I'm actually hoping Jansen skips the trip to Coors, you know, for his heart (and mine).

    oh man, that’s a good point. He sometimes goes on blood thinners or something when he goes to Coors... and with COVID he honestly should look at not making his body weaker. But, I’m not a doctor and I doubt he wants to do that

    i guess it's age related, but I have the same thing, and have been on blood thinners since the surgery.

    I guess it's different for a 30(?) yr. old 7ft. giant Curacaoan Toomgis.
    I guess.
