    comparing Axford and Morrow is ridiculous. Morrow has been hurt half his career, but the stuff was always there. Axford has either sucked or been extremely meh every year since 2011

    Rumblings are Urias going straight to the pen. He's a better get for our pen than anything that is or has been out there. Then you have Ryu coming back which will also push one of the starters down to the pen. Our internal options have always been better than anything out there in my opinion.

    Better hope Wood, Stripling and Urias can handle high leverage situations out of the pen and Kenley can be a horse for us

    Philly did really well getting Wil Ramos
    May be a long term fit, he's a FA after the season

    Super excited about Dozier, but fucking lame that Axford is the best they can do for the pen... he’s not even a top 5 pitcher in it as is.

    I'm comfortable with Wood and Stripling out of the pen. but they need to commit to it.
    Means playoff rotation is Kershaw, Hill, Maeda, and Ryu/Buehler

    I'm more worried about Kenley than the other 3. He chocked for us big time I'm in the WS last year

    say playoff pen is:
    Jansen
    Alexander
    Stripling
    Wood
    Cingrani
    and 2 of Axford/Floro/Baez /Hudson/Goeddel
    Can that get it done?
