Just pathetic pitching.

Center cut fastballs.

Hanging breakers.

Most often right after the offense puts runs on the board.

When does Strom return to the team?

I love Josh Reddick and am anxiously awaiting his return to resembling a major league hitter.  Chirinos too

What a shit game by Sanchez and Devo.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I know it was just tied, but I thought maybe we would see Osuna for the 9th as the only rested arm in the bullpen.

Cole’s scratch has caused most of this mess. Strom’s absence has not helped. Neither did 3 games in 24 hours.

Yesterday was a big test for Sanchez. He needed Strom there. Still a work in progress. Still need to win two in Oakland.

Glass half full side of me likes the way the bats have been going.

Weather the storm.

The bullpen is exhausted thanks to Cole’s hamstring, the schedule, and the rain. No way should Devo have been in there in the 8th, but he had to. Win two of the next three, and we are fine. Luck is not shining on us lately.

Chirinos is what he is.  If you were expecting more than this from him, you set yourself up for failure.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Yep. He fooled us the first half.

Also credit Rondon.  Got the double play and pitched a clean 7th.

Much needed.

If he'd just stop fucking chasing above the strike zone fastballs, I'd be happy.

This was supposed to say 8th, not 9th

Agreed, and they have been preaching this to him all year.

This was my point, you'd think at some point an adjustment would be made.  I realize he is who he is.  Post was more about Josh.
