Heaney threw 28 pitches in the first inning and we didn't have a guy reach 3rd base.

Rondon gave up 5 runs on his first 20 pitches and still hasn't recorded an out

Rondon is getting paid $4.5M to be absolutely terrible on the mound.

This entire pitching staff situation is an unmitigated facking diaster.

Not even really sure how we got here but Luhnow is gonna have to do some serious voodoo magic to get us out of it.

Good news, I think they wanted Rondon to get through the line up one time, that is almost a certainty at this point.

We may very well win the west but this team isn't going to do anything in the playoffs. Not with this staff.

This has been explained to yall a hundred times by now. Nothing is going to happen till the deadline. Period.

We are just going to have to roll with a difficult situation at the 4 and 5 till then. It sucks, but that's the situation, and JL cant just magically make it not reality.

If only MLB had a rule where a team could just concede a game any time they wanted. Hinch could call it a night right now.

In Rondon's defense his own suckage has been combined with some well placed hits that weren't exactly crushed. Couldn have just as easily had Brantley get a little softer contact for a hit and Yodan's ball find a hole. The walk and HBP were unacceptable.

Once Peacock was shut down, they should have just sucked it up and had McHugh start. It would not have been worse.

Also, it's a bummer they wouldn't let Josh go 2 innings.

Would have been interesting if they started Josh 2 games in a row.

Luhnow was quoted saying he was "looking for immediate pitching help", which means before the deadline. So you'd be incorrect there

At this rate we'll be looking up at the A's and maybe even the Rangers by then

Angels just need an HR to hit for the cycle in the top of the first.

We have 3 of the top 25 starters in baseball and a top 5 bullpen.

We'll get an arm or 2 at the deadline and put this all behind us. Relax.

Well, we got here tonight because Peacock was expected to make this start, but he reinjured his shoulder or whatever.

As a whole
  • didn't sign DK or CFM
  • LMJ had Tommy John
  • McHugh & Peacock choked rotation spots and spent some time on the IL
  • Whitley decided he wanted to party like a frat boy and waste an opportunity
  • JB & Martin aren't ready yet
  • Framer and a few others just aren't good enough
  • James was injured enough to compete for a rotation spot and just moved/stayed in the bullpen

Basically, the only things that has gone to plan is Miley being good and our two aces not getting hurt.

Your playoff roster will be JV, Cole, Miley, and a #4. We certainly can make noise in the postseason with that rotation.

Of course we still would like it upgraded to where Miley is he 4th starter.

Rondon's ERA just exploded to 4.79...

At least whoever thought he was still a decent arm can see the reality now

Yeah it just seems like it went downhill real quick.

All the rest the break was supposed to give us vanished.

Fell asleep on the couch before the game started. Just woke up and we are losing 6-0. Time to go to bed. Night night.
