Ugh. Blew Another One.
What was that I said a month ago about the bullpen being stellar? Nevermind. Apparently this is going to be the type of season that when the pitching and defense are good, the offense doesn't have a clue; when the offense starts to come around, the pitching goes in the toilet. I'm no master baseball strategist, but could this have something to do with carrying 7 guys in the bullpen? 7 guys who aren't seeing a whole lot of work because they have to split time?
Oh well. Screw it. Even though these losses sting even more because they came up on the North Side, I'll continue to try and look on the bright side--Thome is back next week, Toby Hall is back and can hit (if not play defense), the offense is starting to come around, and the bullpen isn't as bad as it's looked the past two days. Or if it is, at least Gage and I can commiserate about our mediocre teams with mediocre bullpens.
