Not feeling very bullish on the bullpen, I'm afraid.


Well, not really going to mince words...the last 4 games have been basically a load of bull shit. Bullpen shit(ting the bed) more accurately.

It could be argued, the back end of the rotation has in essence lost the last 4 games. Scary, to say the least, for the overall outlook of a season for a team that is lucky that at least 3/5ths of their division is on a similar downward trend....not so lucky that the other 1/5th is pretty much running away with the division as much as anyone can in April.

Things need to turn around in a hurry....

Oh, was trying to make dinner while the game was on in the next room during the early innings, and kept hearing loud crowd cheers over the Goodman chatter. Peeked my head out of the kitchen expecting to see a pumped Morales walking off the mound or getting out of a jam...nope, just Cubs fans taking over a stadium, cheering on the visiting team as they mounted an early lead. I hate the Cubs.

At the end of last year, someone stepped up to win each game. In this current stretch, it seems like someone is stepping up from the bullpen (or a combo) to blow each game. It has the look of that midseason nosedive that happened on the road last year.

I didn't really see the ending in detail, but the unwar Corpasness of it all seemed obvious. I pretty much knew we were going to lose when Spilly didn't score in the bottom of the 9th.

Cookie better bring his A game tomorrow. This team needs a W in the worst way.

I thought about bringing up the 2007 midseason nosedive...as this does have the same sour taste. Not to mention a wasted Tulo uprising.

However, this is just happening too soon in a season with such (perhaps we should say too) high expectations. They are BLOWING games now. Not just losing like the first week or so.

I will bring a very cynical attitude to tomorrow's business-man's-special afternoon game. I will pelt Cubs fans with peanuts at some point...it is my destiny.

I look forward to the peanut-pelting tirade! I failed to mention the Tulo-HR wasting aspect to last night's game. So true.

What time you coming downtown ST? I should be out of work a little before noon. Was thinking of snagging a burito first at illegal pete's before heading to swanky's.

probably going to take the 11:30 - 38 bus down...so I'm there in time for my ring fitting.
give me a call before you go to IP's...I might like to place an order.

I hate Cub fans. Anybody want to borrow my "The Windy City Blows" t-shirt? It was quite popular last night.

How about CG Cookie???

Please win today Rockies, I don't want to be in a fight later today.

Nik, I hope you or A-pup are still willing to drive to the game tonight. I doubt I'll have the ability.
