    Only 2 innings and it’s almost at 50 pitches. Sign of a struggle

    He’s struggling massively right now but this just isn’t true. He’s been fantastic since coming off the IL.

    I guess. He hasn't looked like reliable starter to me.

    I’ve said it before and flame me if you want..

    - Inconsistent Control
    - Extensive injury history
    - Doesn’t regularly go deep into games

    If Lance McCullers Jr was black, he would’ve been made a late inning reliever a long time ago.

    Hell, his most memorable performance was throwing 24 curveballs in relief vs NYY

    You know lance will have some wild excuse : they didn't have any skim milk at the hotel so he had to drink oatmeal milk, stomach was cramping up

    Lance has been the worst pitcher in the rotation. He had some bad luck in game 2 but he still hung pitches and gave up HRs and couldn't stop the bleeding. Not to shocked with what's going on so far. I felt the team would have to put up a lot of runs to have a chance tonight.

    Fully agreed. Oh well, always next year. Going to take a break from this **** for a while. Maybe I'll be surprised later.

    Exactly. Give the Rays credit as they’re here for a reason they’re GOOD! Three runs is doable

    Bottom of the order. Can’t tell you how many times in this series I’ve been praying for getting one of 8 or 9 on for a Springer Dinger. Need one now.

    Rays outs are so effortless and McCullers has to throw 8 pitch strike outs every time

    Why does everything have to be about race?

    We gotta extend these at bats and get into their bullpen. We're pressing too much
