    His defense has been shit all year, it just hasn't mattered until now. He sucks at fielding and sucks at picking throws

    Faced the bottom of a shitty lineup and still couldn't get it done. Walked the fucking #8 hitter and gave up the game tying hit to the #9 hitter sporting a .098 avg.

    He's had the cushion of two to three run leads in most of his outings, so giving up a run or two hasn't hurt.

    This version of Kimbrel isn't a World Series caliber closer. Get well soon Treinen.

    He's had 0-2 counts. It's just that he works them into 3-2 counts. How in the fuck do you walk the #8 hitter with a breaking ball?

    33-15 but the team has huge concerns when it comes to winning a WS. Do we trust anyone in the rotation in a big game? Definitely not Buehler. The closer is a fucking nightmare every game. We’ve been fortunate Mookie has been playing like a man possessed. Our schedule in May was insanely weak

    Nice comeback spoiled by shit performances by #1 starter and closer.

    is Brusdar on the shelf?
    i know they're saying Kimbrel isn't pitching enough but other guys should be getting a chance to close games if he's giving up runs
    we get rid of Kenley and bang its another 9th inning only guy?

    He's flexible, big fucken deal. He also misses more picks than Muncy did and has had at least 3 times so far had balls deflect off his glove because he doesn't put himself in a good position defensively

    It's his second, but not every ball that deflects off his glove was ruled an error. But there are plays that should be made that he doesn't make

    Spmebody else, given what his record is, has been lucky, too, imo.
    That guy Buehler.
    Lucky as the movie Buehler, Ferris.

    He's certainly showed poor quality closer stuff, and enough times that the "he doesn't pitch enough, small sample size, blah, blah" is a load of steaming horseshit. His lock down days look behind him. It's time to groom another for the spot; and waiting for Treinen may be like waiting for Godot. I guess they had to do something when Toomgis exited, and Pollack gone seems pretty insignificant overall. Maybe Almonte ?
    However, if Kimbrel is now this low performance, shaky guy in closer spots, Roberts will drive us all insane with his resolution to be a stubborn, ignorant, inflexible robot and use Kimbrel to fucking death. You'll see.
    And at this performance level, really, what good is he at all if he can't close the door unless he's up 3 runs ?
    It's not like he can pitch the 7 th or any time else.
    Closer mentality without closer stuff...

    going to be some angry Mexicans out there not getting there in time for their Julio bobble
    used give away 50k but then lowered it to 40k in what is actually a brilliant marketing move
    if you really want that toy you get there early and start eating and drinking an hour before the game
    i wanted the one tonight but wasn't paying $120 for nosebleed seats
