    Well, that's some really bad luck.

    Why was this pitcher not pulled already?

    It's only the 4th inning and he only has a 65 pitch count allowing 2 runs.

    Dusty is known for not having a short hook.

    Very low pitch count, and the bottom of the lineup in sight, they gave him a chance to work out of it and he just couldn't.

    I mean, Still a decent enough start for a guy that likely won't stay in the rotation.

    It didn't help that he's getting squeezed by the ump, calling balls on pitches that were better than those that were called strikes earlier.

    The guy has no clue what is in the strike zone and what isn't.

    We really need that automated strike zone.

    Wasn't softly hit, but Stanek got 2 big outs to shut down the rally.

    Stanek looking like a bargain for 1.1 mil. Those were big outs!

    Garcia needs to be able to locate something for swing and misses. While the ump has been wide, he wasn't giving Garcia the call on the low and away corner when Garcia actually did locate his slider.
