Our defense has not been good this year.



We are 4th in baseball, stastically that's pretty darn good, but the bone headed plays have come in bunches it seems.

Still, 4th in baseball with the how much people have had to move around is pretty surprising tbh.

People keep saying we also have a top 5 bullpen statistically ... sometimes the eye test tells a different story

Can they fire Eschenfelder on the plane ride home tonight and let Michelle host the studio show from now on?

He just doesn't know when to shut up. TK knows to let Blum go on tangents at will with no interruptions. Esch just always has something to say.

Why are we burning Pressley here? McHugh can't go 3?

Pressly was pure filth that inning.

And Stassi did a great job presenting some of those corner pitches.

Eye tests are infamously unreliable. Its what kicked off the sabermetrics to begin with.

We do have a top 5 bullpen. Not sure why anyone would think otherwise. Harris, McQ, Ryan and Roberto are as good or better then anyones top 4 arms.

Because it's a great idea to get Osuma in there with no pressure to get some work and get some confidence.

I actually really like that decision.

Since the all star break I'd say our bullpen is far from top 5. Those 4 guys you listed a great ... however the others have serious issues with consistency. Which is why a lot of people want us to make a move for a bullpen arm as well

Correa went 2-3 with a double tonight as the DH.

Currently he's 5-10 in his 3 rehab games

They are 8th in WAR and 9th in ERA since the all star break.

Didn't realize the stats were that good... those 2 middle Rangers games and game 1 and 2 against the Angels made it seem like the bullpen couldn't get an out
