I just don't understand how Lynn is this bad. He was a solid starting pitcher last year, but now he's totally lost his command, his pitches are far easier to hit, yet he's forcing more strikeouts? I don't get it. I don't buy the "missed Spring Training" excuses.


Dick has already brought up the missed spring training excuse

Lynn working hard to disprove there is no such thing as a bad one year deal....I did not see him as this bad, no way

Is Hughes up?

He’d better be up and ready.

Edit: for some bizarre reason, it’s taylor Rogers getting loose. And he just started.

What is the point of Hughes if not this type of game, other than money...

Ok please....let's be done with Lynn, we've already thrown away enough games with him starting, there comes a time to move on.Heck, even Colon would be fun to watch at this point.

Probably Rogers to get out of this inning, if Lynn can't. I imagine Hughes throws multiple innings in this one.

I think they need to get Slegers up here and start in Lynn's stead. He's at best a #5 pitcher, but that's far better than what Lynn's been giving us.

Hopefully Hughes comes out for the 3rd. I’m having a hard time holding down my lunch

Is it because you wanted Hughes out there instead of Lynn that you're nauseated? Or because of Lynn's pitching ability/lack thereof.  

 

Both are very good possibilities.

Lance Lynn has two to three weeks to step up before Santana comes back. As is, it's not a tough choice to see who goes. The tough choice is whether to try to trade him, release him or move him to the pen.

Welp. Just got in from mowing. Looks like Lynn still can't throw the ball over the plate. How many more starts do we give him?

Both, when I typed “hopefully Hughes comes out” I started sweating

Even though it's a fielders choice in the books, that is probably the best at bat I've seen Buxton take all year long.Laying off the break stuff out of the zone fouling off 2 strike pitches then laces a line drive into the pitcher's leg.
