    Like what they're getting out of Ferguson, Kolarek and Stripling lately. Hoping one of them crowds Yimi aside on the post season roster.

    Has been something special to watch. Indeed.
    I don't believe they can stay with who they will face, even in the NL, with the starters/ closer looking as they do presently.
    But it has been a wonderful regular season ride, and more than fun watching HRs fly and rookies rake.
    The 39 (?) come from behind wins alone are Hollywood script stuff.
    Take away Jansen and early Kelly garbage, and it could have been even more exceptional than it is already.

    Yeah, watching Caleb last night, it does appear he figured something out. Ditto Stripling. I kept expecting both of thsoe guys to give up epic blasts off the pavilion roof. Nice to be pleasantly surprised. As much as I distrust that hope, I'd love to be wrong about my skepticism.

    Stripling is the most underrated pitcher on this team IMO. Always is pretty solid. Never has an ERA over 4. Super versatile. Idk if he’s someone you want on a playoff roster cause at end of the day idk if his underlying stuff is elite but good fastball/curveball combo that continuously gets outs for us. Just been a great pitcher to have these last 4 years, especially during the regular season.

    Haven’t watched a full game in a week or so. What looks different about Ferguson?

    I'd like to know as well, since I haven't been watching either. Monday had been saying since spring training that he was tipping his pitches and he could see it on the broadcasts. Ferguson has also admitted to losing his feel for his curveball at the end of last season and was still struggling with that as well. Seems like shitty cocktail, but god damn would it be great if he figured things out now.

    he’s not flashy
    but you need guys like strip on your staff
    the championship 88 team had a couple... holton, crews, leary
    and they were just as vital as anyone on that roster

    looked like he was hitting his spots for the most part
    and when he missed he didn’t leave pitches out over the plate
    can’t recall who the hitter was, but he threw one pitch about chest high and 94...
    and the hitter had zero chance
    hopefully he’s figured something out

    I think he touched 97 and 96 a couple times too. Curve ball was dirty the other day.

    Alex Wood or Chicken Strip
    These two always seemed to compete for that end of the rotation/long relief role.
    Wood seemed more talented.
    But hoss wasn't a boss like Ross.

    Strip is the real bargain on the staff.

    wood more talented but more fragile
    ross steady but unspectacular

    mexicans > whites
    we make cheap tacos so you can eat them
    and spike them with extra hot sauce
    then charge you 3 bucks for an horchata
    same concept

    and while you drink your champurrado to wash down your enchilado you start feeling embarazado and head to the escusado before your ass gets bien cagado and the mexican takes your girl leaving you castigado... but for that im sure you got an abogado.
