Leaving Chirinos in here is a white flag from Hinch


What's the reason for this?

Blummer is not happy tonight


I love it. The pitching needs some public ridicule. Someone needs to light a fire

Well this week has pretty much sucked. Get this **** out of the system now before October gets here I guess

WS Windows only last so long if you are not Red Sox or Yankees. Why the heck is Tucker not called up yet?

Losses like these are super frustrating.

Need a starter to step up and go deep in a game to help out.

I guess we're more in need of all the pitching options we can get

Pitching is an absolute joke right now. Pitch selection, location, execution....all horrible. The only thing the staff has been doing well is creating exit velocity for the opposing batters.

that's why I don't think the Astros are serious about getting the #1 seed.

it was the same thing on Sunday vs. the O's --- never gave Yuli an at-bat in a 1-run game.

Hinch won't empty the chamber

I'd rather bring in Pressly despite him pitching like Ass

Pressly ass is better than Devo ass and at least you can say you put your best option in

Either could Bregman until he turned it around

Give Tucker a chance, Reddick can't hit at the ML level either

Yes. This is the bigger issue. We've gone away from spiking stuff in the dirt when ahead in the account.

Think we've been trying to get to cute rather than just put people away.

Reddick can at-least Field his position

Reddick is below average defensively

Not losing much there

Believe they both pitched the two days prior. Hinch's philosophy is not to pitch guys 3 days in a row.

You bring one of them in, you lose them for tomorrow. This is a 4 game series during a 15 game stretch with no off days. They can't pitching in every close game. At some point the other guys have to step up and execute. Also, the starter has to pitch better as well.

As long as you're also giving him credit for the 78 W's.

Collin pitched the past two days.

Don't think Joe Smith did, but what are you saying if he's the one giving up the HR?

My point is what is Hinch supposed to do when we don't have any off days coming up and we previously played 3 games in 24 hours on the road?

I just don't think there are some realistic takes on here sometimes. All Devo had to do was not throw a change up down the freaking middle. That isn't much to ask of a MLB pitcher.

Doubt it, you can look at the balls and see needle marks. They are juiced

Really need JV to put us on his back and go 8

TBA will give up 7-8 runs, and Grienke will give up 4-5 runs
