Off to Texas for another key ALWest matchup.

Probables:

Fri: Kirby RHP (3-2, 4.18 ERA) vs Blanco RHP (3-0, 1.65 ERA)

Sat: Gilbert RHP (2-0, 2.03 ERA) vs Valdez LHP (1-0, 2.60 ERA) On Fox Sports

Sun: Miller RHP (3-2, 2.04 ERA) vs Brown RHP (0-4, 9.78 ERA) *ambiguous reporting here, have seen TBD as well

If you doubt this team doesn't have coaching after that 8th inning I don't know what to tell ya.
It's time for a change. Now.
Also did Kirby get hurt? Should have been out there in the 7th. Another game handed away. Scott Servais and Manny Acta winning you a world series would truly be a miracle.

You can’t walk 5 guys in an inning and win.
This loss is on the bullpen.

Well, that sucked. Too many mistakes on the mound and on the bases.

Unless there was an injury or something there was no reason to pull your best pitcher at 88 pitches. The bullpen was probably so shocked too about it that's the reason they couldn't throw strikes.

His pitch count was too high.

They're saying Kirby has a minor knee soreness and don't want to over tax it. How was Servais to know the bullpen would shit the bed. Lot of season left, Kirby is looking at 20+ more starts this year, hopefully.

I never understood why trying to pick off a runner from third?! Its not like the guy is going to steal home anyways.
