    At one point, one of the Javier rules was they didn’t want to bring him in mid-inning…

    Lots of rules.

    Javier is too reliant on fastball with his lack of location.

    Whatever role we’re trying to pigeonhole Javier isn’t working. Took a solid starter and turned him into an avg to below avg reliever.

    Javier in the middle of the inning. We’ve seen this movie before.
    So happy Dusty burned both Graveman and Presley with a four run lead yesterday

    So to be clear... the only pitchers that don't really suck right now are the two new ones so far. Got it!

    Don’t trust anyone in the bullpen unless they arrived in the last week.

    His stuff gains life after the 2nd batter faced. Hopefully they see this.

    Might as well have him start/open games and let him get revved up appropriately… and limit the damage he’s possibly susceptible to when he comes in late in games or with men on.

    He can still be a weapon.

    Javier in a little bit of a slump. He will pull out of it. His location has been way off recently.

    This is a very weird game.

    Feels like we have no business winning it, but we're still right here.

    Don't nibble around the edges and just throw ****ing strikes. The stuff is good enough.
