    The commissioner’s “Just Make it Up as We Go Along” plan keeps things interesting.

    I dont think they expected 9 of 12 relievers they brought up to struggle in the first week and had time until at least when the roster gets reduced the first time, to get through games with all the extra arms in the pen.
    Maybe but I'm also starting to believe that maybe Tommy Hottovy might not be a very good pitching coach.
    Screw sabermetics.

    Cant blame him too much, the rotation is talented and performing well. The bullpen has a bunch no name bums in there and its showing. No one could get this bullpen to show results.

    Why? Because he can't make bad pitchers like Brothers, Sadler, Tepera, Maples, Norwood...magically good? Without any sort of actual camp? In a weird year?

    Thats not on Hottovy. Hes not a dark wizard capable of that. It should surprise no one that a bunch of replacement level arms are pitching like replacement level arms.

    It not that he not a good PC, it just that the majority of these relievers are just not good pitchers..
    He hasn't really had a chance with most to all these relievers, especially with the limited ST to work with them, so it comes down to talent and getting the job done.
    Unfortunately majority has little talent and they're not getting the job done

    I can't find any reason to get too excited about Rea. He was the PCL pitcher of the year last year. Average at missing bats. Might get some ground balls. Wouldn't surprise me if he's better then most the trash, but not one of the guys i was hoping to see.

    The fourth comment to Bruce's tweet is pretty funny: "Dillon will probably miss the cab and then the plane."
