Is it just me or is James the Kyle Tucker of the bullpen?

Any chance James gets DFA'd soon? Whitley Martin and JB all seem ready for their shot

James needs to go

To the IL, to AAA, to somewhere else...Anywhere but here.

Janes needs to be back in AAA. Has one pitch right now and he can't even control it.

Offense had a chance for one run, but extremely doubtful on three. Left way too many runs on the table tonight.

At the game. When hinch put in James I told my friends he gave up on winning this game. Lo and behold... This garbage

Did I see that right, that hit was only a HR in MMP. No other ball park?

Sign Keuchel

Move Peacock to the pen

Bring up Yordan

Yep. Routine pop fly in most. That thing went straight up.

Also why is the guy with the 8.31 ERA pitching in the 9th inning of a 1 run game?

Managers only have so many arms in the bullpen. I know we don't like seeing James, but we can't always use our best, especially when losing. This is on Luhnow. We've got to get a better option out there.
AggiEE

Not like he has many options

Outside of Pressly and Osuna our pen is garbage.

Maybe Hinch should use them in games where we're down by 1 though

Harris and tendon are pretty good but we already used them

Stop letting Josh James pitch
Harry Dunne

I understand saving our top guys for a situation with A slim lead but James is easily our worst option, so unless everybody else in the bullpen is spent, it was a bad choice.

And then the last two Ks, James looks phenomenal.

Great pitch. Sadly.

Ball 1 was a ballsy pitch for CC to take

Pretty uninspired effort by the offense the last two nights, and that's being kind. They had a chance to blow this one wide open early and choked. Hell, we saw 3-4 backwards Ks on fastballs today somehow.

Then the pitching staff decides to give up 6 HRs to a team with next to no power this year. Not even going to call out our baserunning issues this year.

They better find a way to salvage the last game and get their heads right. They don't even look like they're having fun right now.

just terrible offense tonight.

14 baserunners = 3 runs.

and the 12 K's didn't help

One of the worst slugging teams in the league comes in and gets all their runs off HRs.

Pitching comes around and the bats go silent.

Weird series

Hate the guy but this is pretty funny. Wonder if Bregman will respond or just hit 2 homeruns tomorrow

If anyone in this league has nuts bigger than Bregs it may be Trevor Bauer.

I will be in attendance for my first game of the season today finally.

We score 8 and bounce back

I just watched the condensed game from last night. It's hard to only score 3 times with 10 hits. Both of Lindor's home runs (which accounted for the three-run difference) were on really good pitches.

It looked like the kind of game you don't lose very often, which is why I'm not concerned about this team. They have had a lot of losses in games they played really well.

Hilarious, clean and good for baseball. Bregman needs to step up.

Don't get me wrong, I think James is a great talent and has a bright future - he just needs to find himself again on Round Rock's clock, not ours...or at least not in 1-run games.
