Inning #6

Latest episode of Wash letting the kids play and living with the results:

“He got to the point where he got to the sixth inning, where he had to go down and find out what he’s made of, and he just left a pitch over the plate to a left hander and gave up a grand slam,” Washington said. “Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that would happen.”

As of May 5th, 2024 our best reliever Cimber, our best pitcher is Soriano and our best player is Rengifo. Makes sense.

It will be interesting to see where the dust settles for everyone at the end of the season.

Best player: Rengifo? Just day no.

Ward and Adell are way better, even with Adell’s baserunning gaffs. Neither Adell nor Ward has single-handedly cost the team wins.

It’s tough to be an Ace. There is so much info out there on every pitcher these days. So only the truly great get to Ace level.

We are bad enough that we might become the first, in all professional sports, to have an unsuccessful surgery on one of its players.

We’re wasting Willie Calhoun?

This team is using no Kevin Pillar as a pinch hitter and fielding Ehire Adrianza as the the full time 3rd baseman. Yeah, they probably are not going to win a majority of the games they play.

There must be a developmental issue or something. These pitchers give up way too many fast balls in the zone when they get ahead in counts.

Wait, the conventional wisdom was that the new pitching coach was the best that ever coached pitchers in the history of the game?

Or a lack of talent issue?

To be fair to Detmers he should have been taken out after walking the base loaded but who’d come in?

Suarez?
