It'd be nice if we didn't give runs back

The shift is fine provided your pitcher throws pitches located where being shifted won't hurt him.If they're stacked on the right side of the diamond, don't work the outside portion of the plate where someone could slap it through the hole.

I remember Berrios said he wanted to be a 20 game winner. Selfish attitude if you ask me.

Bad 3-0 call there, nice to see the poor umpiring is continuing in this game.Sick of all the balls called strikes in this series.

We might see more of that next season. Arraez has batted at the top a few times this season but why mess with things that have worked (Kepler at top, etc)

 

I hear that. It's small potatoes either way.

Once again, it just feels like the team is going through the motions, no energy, no edge.

 

Been this way since Monday's walk-off against the Braves.

Oh, I don't know, maybe being a 19-game winner?Why shouldn't a pitcher strive to win 20-25 games or have 200-225 K's?That's called being a shutdown pitcher and being the ace of the staff.You're setting goals to be one of the best pitchers your team sends out there every 5 days.  

 

I wanted to see how you backed up your assertion before I cemented my opinion of the original post.Your explanation did nothing to change it.
