I think the bullpen is fine. The issue to me is more they’ve had to blow trade capital to acquire it. But results and numbers wise they’re an above average even good bullpen. Problem is they’ve robbed from their hitters to bolster it and now they’re a below average hitting team.

KK is a beauty. Giving the team a chance to walk this off.

Their bullpen is, at best, good enough for a team that is competing to get into the wildcard spot. They simply can’t compare with any other of the teams in the playoffs…and that is when they rely heaviest on the bullpen.

They also haven’t moved many pieces from the lineup to build their bullpen. Really it was only Teo. Pop and Bass were for Jordan Groshans.

Speed on the bases. I'd like to see them create some chaos.

No idea what some of these guys are swinging at. Beating themselves.

Just swinging at garbage. Bautista wasn't throwing strikes. Bo bailed him out by swinging at junk. Vladdy swung at the first pitch. And Kirk swung at two more balls. Just an infuriating team right now. They deserve all the L's that they're getting.

Two men on and what do we get? 2 absolute mug ABs from Bo & Kirk and a subpar one from Vlad.

Can’t wait too long to find consistency in the toughest division in baseball. Orioles are now legit and the Jays have been getting worked in this divison. Get it together soon or bye bye playoffs.
