Man. How long is Martinez going to keep this job? This team is too talented to be playing like this. They look terrible.


But they aren't talented right now.


He should of been fired mid- season last year. National league east full of terrible managers. Calloway terrible, kapler’s phillies team quit on him the last 5 weeks of last year. Mattingley gets the marlins to play above their talent level, and Snitger is why I’m picking the braves to repeat.

Agreed

You get the sense that most of the NL East is poorly managed top to bottom. Washington, Mets, and Phillies all have pockets of excellence but primarily solve problems by throwing money at them. Lots of nepotism, I'd imagine.

And I thought Dusty was a bad manager. Turns out they hired one even worse. They were absolutely loaded last year, no reason they didn't win the division. Yea he probably should've been let go mid season last year to try and salvage the season

Other than a kinda high pitch count, Woodruff is looking good today. Touching 97 on the radar gun, and crisp breaking stuff. Hopefully they can get 6 out of him today.

Growing up, I never imagined Bill Spiers having such a think, deep southern drawl. Kinda neat hearing these guys.

6-0 lead should help. With his lively fastball he shouldn't have to be too picky. Challenge them early in the count and see if they can hit it.

Yeah, but, Woodruff's bat has come back to earth. Probably too much focusing on pitching. He needs to get his priorities figured out.

It was always kind of surprising there weren't more Brewers asked up to the booth to talk about their time as a Brewer. It usually has to be someone like Yount or Fielder for it to happen. I'm interested in some of the better players in our history and the stories they have during their time playing.

I'm not watching this game. But general question.

If they have the minor league director, or whatever brass in for a half inning and it goes quickly, why do they not have them stay for another half inning? There can't be that tight a schedule on these guys. I don't get that at all. Especially if the game isn't that tight.

87 through five. This is where CC has pulled Woodruff in each of his last two starts (87, 94 pitches). And this is again where I'd like him to try to get another inning out of him.

Chris Hook is continuing his dominant coaching for 6 straight days. I'd love to see Woody pitch until 105 pitches or so.

I agree ... he's dealing now. Send him back out for the 6th, but maybe have someone start warming. If he gets in trouble or the pitch count starts creeping uncomfortably over 100, go to the pen.

Pineapple bomb...

it's fun when the bottom of the order isn't an offensive death zone!

It does happen sometimes. They'll throw something out like 'mind sticking around for another inning' and they do.

Good point overall on this idea though. With so many games and how we all get a little burned out on hearing the same stuff, why not bring up guests a lot if they're willing. Don't limit to the big stars only like Yount. Grab some mid level guys if they happen to be around, why not get some other perspectives and stories. could be something to shake it up. Granted, who knows how often folks like that are around though

I know Pina was close when he almost homered to RF the other night. Hopefully, this kick starts his season as Grandal is going to need breaks.
