Down 3-0 already if anyone is interested. Thank goodness for the 9 man bullpen! How innovative.

Not sure what they see in Flexen. Wish they would give Oswalt the starts.

Sarcasm?

Young players struggle. That's part of the game. At least they struggle at league minimum.

Flexen has now gotten 53 innings, and has a .97 K to BB ratio, 2.2 WHIP. Oswalt has gotten 11 innings, with uneven use that has hampered him (along with several fruitless trips). Even so, he has a 2.33 K:BB ratio, 1.4 WHIP. I think you have to utilize that to make an informed decision about who gets starts toward development.

Ironic that several members and I had a discussion about Oswalt versus Flexen several years ago?

I don't see it with neither Oswalt or Flexen.

And Chris Beck still here? :Lol:

Young players do struggle and I guess lots of players struggle at some time, but I just look at those two and I don’t see them being value pieces moving forward. I’m not claiming to know it all, I just don’t see with those two guys. Hopefully I’m wrong and they turn out to be all stars.

Would a perfect game be rock bottom?

No.

A 1-hitter broken up by Reyes would.

Bashlor with a nice 1-2-3 inning. Can Drew Smith see the light of day at some point?

Gotta give them more time. I know cross town they have Andujar and Torres tearing it up but not everyone is Torres and Andujar.
