The PSD exodus? Or maybe it’s because Rube lost all our data one time and had to reboot this place.
Urias lookin great.
And there’s 3 days off after the 3-game series, so there’s no reason not to throw the kitchen sink out there in the first round. Want May to throw a 3-inning save in Game 2? Go for it.
I thought maybe we were all like race horses.
The umps are ruining the game with their overall, relentless incompetence. Strikes are balls, and balls are strikes.
Really needs to be addressed, and soon. It's of runaway proportions.
If there staying with these fuck up bums and don't want to use the technology, then take the superimposed K zone down.
It's just too damn distracting and counterproductive.
It's ruining baseball...I say again.
6 IP, 1 ER for Urias, on some questionable balls, not bad. Also, Smith’s framing is not very good
Bellinger and muncy’s at bats lately though... very good
i keep hearing how good our bullpen is
Oh no Treinin
bullpen gonna be scary; the numbers look good this year in how they’ve done, they’ve had great results in a year where they’ve done a lot but... there’s always gonna be a magnifying glass on them in playoffs. Getting May/Urias in there could help, but it’s hard to have 100% faith in anyone really.
Jake Diekman and Blake Treinen both giving up home runs for the first time all year is wild haha.
Our best relievers are like... Brusdar and Victor? And then it’s like Baez, Treinen, Jansen, McGee, Floro all in the same tier of being good enough to get by, but won’t necessarily dominate and will blow some games. Hopefully they go on a good run during playoffs as they have at times this year
graterol and victor for sure
imo baez, kolarek and floro > kenley, treinen and mcgee
kelly and wood meh
The bullpen leads league in ERA and FIP, and it’s mostly based off not giving up walks and keeping the ball on the ground. That’s not a bad recipe for success, although tHe lack of K’s are gonna lead to lots of bullshit singles rallies. Oh well. Just gotta pray for the best and hope for good utilization but it’s definitely the part I feel most scared about, even if the rest of the league has shitty bullpens
Maybe next time don’t throw in the Joe Kelly Experience
Some poor calls to be certain. But Smith does his pitchers no favors the way he jerks the ball around.
Not sure how the A's hitter kept that ball fair. It was well inside off the plate.
Kelly and Wood can stay the fuck home.
I'm gonna come out and say it... I am really worried about our bullpen and I think our FO is too. There is a reason that Gonsolin, Urias and May are being used in relief appearances. They are worried that we are going to need to get 6+ outs somewhere else they can't find it right now.
and with kenley closing i have a genuine fear of close games
imo graterol and baez should have been given opportunities to close
i truly believe kenley will again let us down at the worst possible time
For the first round, for sure. We could potentially get away with only using our actual bullpen for 2 or 3 innings.
After the first round though, we are realistically looking at a 5-man rotation. I think they are prepping to use an Opener for the young guys, and I like it, Urias and May both went substantial innings their past outings so I stop short of thinking they are being prepped for traditional bullpen work. I don't think we can avoid substantial innings from our bullpen in the NLDS or NLCS, and I guess the silver lining is that every other team will be in the same boat. But if Kenley is the de facto closer, and I have no reason to think he isn't, then we are basically counting on luck to progress in the playoffs and I hate it.
