JDLR apologists still have the “he is always bad in April” excuse to use one more time I suppose.

But……this guy is REALLY bad. Velocity is down. Is he hurt? But it goes beyond that. He’s walking too many, can’t hold runners on base, working ridiculously slowly. At the very least, he needs a DL stint and a month long trip to Arizona to hit the “reset” button.

Ed the Ump called it early last season.

I agree with RMH – why not let Jorge just go 6 innings, 10 runs allowed? Oh, I guess he’s “hurt” so that wasn’t an option. And sorry, Christian Bergman is just not a major league pitcher.

Thoughts: Jorge is a p word that I’d rather use the c word. Why do we always have to be the team that allows 3 HRs to one player? Ever heard of pitching around a guy? Why are we so bad at challenges? Without knowing where to confirm this I can’t believe any other team has a worse success rate on challenges. Now because we lost a challenge earlier we lose a run because we didn’t have a challenge. Finally,… Read more »

Slow down here Cheetah, “Piching around” someone implies that you have command and know what you’re doing. At least 50% of our staff haven’t graduated from “pitching around” class.
