    I agree with the bulk of your analysis. I still do not feel comfortable as a fan when Rondon is on the mound in a save situation, despite his very impressive statistics.

    Maybe I am simply not a...

    Good points.

    I consider an opportunity to take 3 or 4 from the hated Cardinals a high leverage situation. This team has garnered a lot of national attention but there have been several instances...

    Are we going to debate the definition of statistics now? I was an economics major in college. I appreciate the story they tell just as much as yourself.

    I'll gladly eat crow on this one and wash it down with an Old Style. However, this team has not shown the ability to conistently make good pitches and get key outs when the game is in the balance.

    Except in high leverage situations. He also has a tendency to get behind on the count in those scenario's. Carlos Marmol's stats were elite at times but he was far from being an elite closer nor...

    I agreed with this statement in May-June. But it is nearly August. Players need to define their own roles, especially in the pen.

    Its been our single biggest liability this season.

    No. This team chronically fades in high leverage situations and has all season. It doesn't get easier in September.

    I have to agree and it isn't me being a pessimist. You can see how this team chronically plays down to its competition. I could tell back in June when we were struggling with the Brewers that we...

    We are about to get swept at home by a team that has won 13 road games all year. Lets be honest, this team has not played well since the St Louis series shortly before the break.
