Finishing 40 games above .500 is quite an accomplishment for our team!

 

Let's hope Luiz recovers quickly and the bats heat up.

Yeah, I’m not sure what happened to Graterol yesterday. It was like he didn’t trust his heater. Smalley was nearly begging him to throw high fastballs to (I think) Mejia, because he hadn’t been able to catch up to high and tight all series and Brusdar kept pumping in low sliders one after another. Was he told to work on the slider and forget about the results?? Seemed really odd that a guy known for triple-digit heat was throwing so few fastballs.

I think thats correct. Nobody wanted extra innings. So he was probably told to work on the slider...no matter what the outcome. but he isn't ready for a post season spot. Clearly hitters have had no problem hitting his heater. Time will help him
