    is pathetic.

    This team is so brutally inconsistent I can't tell myself what to expect from this series.

    Wouldn't surprise me if we lost 3 of 4

    That would surprise me. This is a bad team we're playing, at home, with our top two pitchers bookending the series. I know baseball is baseball but dropping 3 of 4 here would really force me to question the caliber of this team which I've maintained like many others is still of a very high tier with simply underwhelming results, to this point. If we drop 3 of 4 in this particular series we are likely not the baseball team I thought we were.

    This is a series we should sweep, so naturally we will lose 2 out of 4

    I'm not sure what Joe is thinking anymore with Zo in the 4 hole.

    A quality start from Quintana would give him 5 in 6 starts with us. Key is getting through the first inning.
