I dont knwo about absolutely horrible. he gave up 5 runs in 2 starts this year and came into the game with a 3.75 ERA...
And our offense gave him exactly one run of support in both of his starts
In his first 2 starts he barely made it 5 innings though so the era is a liitle deceptive. If he would have pitched longer it would be alot higher.
Man Willingham missed about 3 pitches in that at bat that he should have destroyed.
it was a doozy.
look at hughes blowing it by our power guys
He pitched 7 in his first start.
Hammer will run into one tonight.
I said before the season started that I wasn't worried about the offense...not even a little bit. I said I think it could score as many runs as they did in 2010 or even a bit more. ..and nothing has changed my mind. It's a well balanced team offensively.
The pitching is God-awful...
I actually like Swarzak he just doesn't seem to have what it takes. Some days he looks amazing, but too often he just looks average.
Willingham and Morneau both missed pitches in that inning that the Yankees would have deposited into the bleachers. Thats the difference between out team and most. We don't make pitchers pay for mistakes, you always hear Bert and Bremer say Oh he just missed that one. I would love to hear way to make them pay for that mistake just once.
