    Soria just sucks ass.


    He is neither shit, nor sucks ass.

    The thing is, it's not like Wade or Holland are walking through that door. Maybe someone else can do a better job in the 8th inning role, but frankly - it's a gamble because we don't have many options these days in the pen.

    OMG! Did Soria give you his kidney or something? How many saves does he need to blow before you will admit he is shitty in the 8th inning role? 10? 15? What's the number?

    I think a viable alternative would be to go away with the "8th inning" guy and move back to a situational bullpen. Bring Moylan in against righties in crucial situations and use one of our lefties against lefties. We have a much better bullpen to align that way than what we've been doing over the past 4 years. Agree?

    I advocated for that way even when we had the best bullpen in baseball. But Ned isn't going to do that so it's pointless to discuss it.

    I didn't ever say he was good in the 8th inning role, just merely pointing out that he is neither a "shitty" pitcher or "sucks ass".

    I'll answer for him.

    Something about getting lucky and he still sucks ass and we're all wrong about him other than 007.

    I've shown his shitty stats, not sure what more proof you need. That's like saying every time Gordon gets a hit we should move him to the 2 spot in the lineup.

    What the fuck is wrong with him, by the way? Is he playing through an injury or something?

    Nothing. He's had one of the best seasons in the bullpen. In the last month he's had an ERA under 3 and batters are hitting a sub .600 OPS against him.

    He's given up 10 total bases in that time span.

    What's happening with the pitching?

    Kennedy, Vargas, et. al. weren't exactly Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz to begin with. It's just regression to the mean. It's a hell of a time for it to happen too.

    Regression is a cruel mistress.

    Gordon benched, eh? Probably for the best, for a minute?

    Yes, but hope he can get it back. The Royals gave him more than a fair chance to get his shit going.

    That win streak was fools gold.

    P.S. I hate Carpenter.
    Are you not Entertained? Is this not why you are here?
