go fuck yourself kenley
6 straight hits.
oh now you come get him?
fuck you roberts
I’ll look at this game fondly if it means that Jansen is no longer the closer, honestly. Lose the battle, win the war type
I can’t even blame Kenley. It’s been 3 years.
Kenley aka The Big Let Down
This game was in our pocket...sad man. SD must be laughing out loud, and licking their chops at batting against this bush league closer we' ve got.
Against these motherfuckers, too. Couldn't be worse, Kenley, you douchebag.
Pivotal game for this whole fucking season. Bad fucking vibes, man.
Vudu fuck Jansen.
We lost the game all because of one player. 100% Kenley lost that game. Half of the Houston hits came in less than one inning.
Literally came back from a great meal and sex otb to see joc double and find out toomgis coughed up 5...talk about a buzz loss. Fuck you davey we are so doomed.
can’t think of anyone on the entire staff i have less confidence in than kenley
and yet roberts keeps marching him out there
and, as @BlueMouse alluded, it’s not like kenley suddenly got shitty
side note: congrats padres, 2020 world series champs
I don’t even want Kenley pitching the 6th inning of an 8-1 game. We actually have good pitchers, why waste another inning on this guy?
F*CK YOU KENLEY AND ROBERTS!!!!!!!!
Taking a step away and, Jansens numbers aren’t nearly as bad as I’d think, and numbers wise there isn’t a clear cut better player, and he can get over it... but... just watching the stuff, the stuff alone and the command alone, it’s not good enough. Just not good enough but idk what you realistically do. He’s gonna be an important part of the bp one way or another I just hope he gets better command somehow in wtv role
the command, or lack thereof, is the problem
he was missing the target badly
had springer 0-2 and someone else iirc
have to make them hit your pitch when you have the advantage, and he couldn’t do it

Dave Roberts said he still has confidence in Kenley Jansen. When pushed, he answers: "As far as leash, he's our closer. But obviously performance matters and everyone in that clubhouse knows that."
Yeah but eye ball test still has relevance in this game. dudes cutter don’t cut.
His velo is meh at 90-92
He throws the ball in the zone far too much
He has NO swing and miss stuff
He’s predictable with his cut piece sitting at 91 and it’s ALL he throws
he’s just not the answer in high leverage situations and the manager/ team/ front office need to get a grip.
kenley fucking Jansen is NOT a closer
coffees for closers bkitch
Are you looking at his updated numbers after tonight? There was a pretty big jump.
I kinda want to go back and rewatch his outings, because I don’t remember being super impressed even early in the season. His early outings were miles better than his last 2, but that’s not saying much. There are peripheral stats that suggest his early outings included good luck, and that’s what I remember thinking.
