    They're not flirting with it, they're full blown ****ing it.

    We need to improve our bullpen. We have a good lineup and starting pitching.

    You must have high velo and strikeout guys in the pen to face the Yankees. We don't have enough of that.

    Joe Smith owns Gary Sanchez, so of course Joe Smith hits Gary Sanchez with the first ****ing pitch.

    lol yeah let’s celebrate 4 2/3 innings of 2 run ball!!

    The team is going to underperform all year much like 2016. This bullpen is an absolute mess and James Click did absolutely nothing to address it. The trajectory of this team and this organization is downhill with the wannabe Rays management running the show. It makes me sick.

    Yet another game of trash Bryan Abreu. Brooks Raley. These guys are hardly major league pitchers, and we use them like Dotel and Wagner. And as I type this an amazing Joe Smith sighting to add to it.

    Ive been trying to defend this team and argue the numbers will start showing up as more wins, but with a bullpen like this and inconsistency with starting pitching they can only go so far. Dusty is doing us no favors at the moment either.

    Who is dusty supposed to go with the bullpen sucks. He should probably just leave the starters in longer.

    Three runs aren’t enough against Yankees especially with a trash bullpen.

    Garcia pitched well. He's pitched pretty well all year. He's the current 5th starter.

    I do not ****ing understand the Brooks Raley fetish this season. "Last year" don't count with relief pitchers.

    Whatever.....the Astros have beaten the Yanks when it really matters. This bullpen stinks though and I hope some how the team can get it to respectful level to be able to contend again this year.

    Judge with five strikeouts and the Stros are down by three.

    Consolation Prize.

    At least the Stros didn't blow this game with slapdick fielding like they did the last 2.

    Why was Riley or Raley whatever he calls himself in there in the most crucial situation. Other than our dramatic closer, as closers tend to be I don't trust anyone in the bullpen.
