What the heck was he doing on that play.
The finish has to be addressed, starting with almost stranding bases loaded with 0 outs absent one wild pitch. I also think DiMare needs to hold off on the mindset of let's get some young unproven guys some work out of the pen until maybe he has some 15-2 games. Very happy to get the win, though it should have never been in doubt.Great win and great series win, despite the finish. I'll let Lance summarize, but I am hoping Zamora's walk-off last night is our UF series in reverse.
I agree. The potential is there, but they've got to throw strikes. JD's one of the best in the biz, so I hope he gets them going. Cook actually looked fine; at least he only walked one.Arteaga needs to address the "bull-pen".
That should be our strength. Not sure what is wrong. Cook, Maury and Federman are very good pitchers. Not sure what is hindering them....
Veliz fell apart yesterday as well. He was formerly a starter and a good one at that.
Maybe it is early, but our former strength is now our weakness.
Not being able to throw strikes isn't about aggressiveness, it's about ability. Maury allowed two walks, a single, and a wild pitch because he had no command, not because he wasn't being "aggressive". The one and only mission with a 9-2 lead in the ninth is to throw strikes, and he couldn't do it.That rally doesn’t happen if the pitchers simply got aggressive and threw strikes before that carnival got started.
