A 10-run lead and Devo still can't throw strikes. That sucks.

Maybe we can package Devo & White in exchange for a can of pork & beans.

Devo is a lost cause.

McHugh still resting from the All Star break??

I think AJ anticipates McHugh will get lot of innings tomorrow with Framber starting

You have a ten run lead - how about you throw strikes.

It's a simple freaking game

I think this is the biggest issue for our bullpen as a whole personally.

We have multiple guys that have control issues and just generally don't know where the ball is going. It makes it very hard to use these guys with traffic on base paths in tight games

Great time for him to get an inning to start off his season

A major league pitcher should be able to throw strikes with a ten run lead - this is ridiculous and actually embarrassing

Devo needs a trip back to the minors.

I'm guessing they'll announce him as our starter for Tuesday.

Wouldn't this have been the perfect time to ease Joe Smith back in? Why did we activate him on Friday with no intention of using him?

And there we have it...the leadoff walk.

I was only half joking.

Devo hasn't been good in 2 years. People try to cling to his 2016 season but the guy is just not good

We have way too many unreliable arms on this staff for a team trying to win a WS. One starting pitcher isn't going to change that. Jmo.

I've seen a number of bad appearances out of the bullpen and that was another one.

Devo's mechanical issue is so blatant that I cannot believe Strom isn't working with him on it which tells me Devo cannot correct it.

Example #8,546 ...A 2 pitch reliever who cant locate his off speed pitch is virtually worthless especially in tight spots.

Joe Smith off to a good start...

He is throwing strikes. That is a good thing.

One good thing to come out of this weekend's series:
Crystal clarity about strengths, weaknesses, and certain players.

I will eat my crow, gave him crap two days ago and he has been great the last two days.

At this point it's obvious that Devo is just unwilling to change or listen.

If you are advocating for relief pitchers to have more than 2 pitches, I would argue that the best relievers in baseball history have largely been 2 pitch pitchers.

Does Devo have any options left or is he another guy that we are trying to make it to September 1st with expanded rosters and hope to start over with a better 2020 season?

if he starts bunting some that will stop, but he didn't even show bunt once.
