Atkins Up, Schlitter down

Recommended Posts

When is the last time we have had a bullpen this bad?


I just can't even fathom this. We have Marmol who is absolutely ridiculous and Marshall who is nice and absolutely nothing else. It's scary bad. I didn't think it was possible for a bullpen to be this bad.


How about that John Grabow deal? This entire board knew it was a disaster. Disgusting. I want to punch a hole in the wall just thinking about the bullpen.

They need to send that junkballing [expletive] righthander Coleman down. His assortment of [expletive] isnt gonna work in the big leagues. 4.5 K/9 in AAA? Get lost.


I seriously LOL'd @ this.


Your anger is exactly how I feel. It's just downright insulting how bad this pen is.


How bad of a GM is Hendry? He can't build a pen around a guy like Marmol. Just pathetic.


The mid-season Bob Howry signing was just the extra kick in the nuts.


Sorry for rant.

The worst part about all this is that either:


A. Promising starters like Cashner and Jay Jackson are going to become relievers because the bullpen clearly is what made this year's team so bad




B. We're gonna drop another 15M on relievers this offseason




C. All of the above
