What was one of the few bright spots going into the season was their starting rotation. But the loss of Wells and Cashner for a significant amount of time will prove costly. Casey Coleman did alright for five innings on Sunday to keep his team in the game, but the bullpen gave up the go ahead runs in a tough loss. Tuesday’s pitcher by committie was a joke. Russell and Samardjiza should never see a ML pitchers mound ever again. I’ll swear, on one of Samardjiza’s pitches, he was trying to hit former president George Bush in the face.
In another of Hendry’s great off-season moves, Carlos Pena is showing us all how he hit .196 last year. And Matt Garza was pissed after his last start because Soto was calling too many curveballs. He said curves are not part of his game. Excuse the fuck out of me, but Garza fastballs usually wind up over the wall for home runs.
It’s gonna be a long year!!!
