2019-06-20: Reds (Roark) at Brewers (Nelson) [Brewers lose, 7-1 -- Yelich hitting 28th HR is lone bright spot]

Jimmy Nelson has zero value; if they DFA him nobody is going to claim him and put Nelson on their 25 man roster. He’d be going to the minors regardless and based on what he’s shown so far he is going to be hunting for a contract this off season anyhow.

I’m sure if the Brewers want to option him he would consent to go down and work on his craft to try to get back to being a useful pitcher as opposed to the mop up man and pitching without a set schedule

Oh by the way this team has three hits against Tanner Roark. They could get no hit Saturday against Castillo.

Just got home and checking some highlights. Could Braun have given any less effort on Iglesias' home run?

Cards' fans wear jorts.

Outside of Woodruff who else does this team build its rotation around? What does this rotation look like in a year? This is the scariest part of the trouble they are in.


I would give Peralta, Burnes, and Houser a shot this season. At least those guys have upside. I'm tired of going with a bunch of soft tossing veterans who are 4th and 5th starters at best.

+1....no one will want him now that he has been on the mound and shown that he is finished.

The pitching staff is a train wreck right now.

Nah, I've been told that if you squint your eyes and turn your head slightly to the left, everything is actually really good.

The shaw situation is the template for how they will handle Nelson. You are a great guy who used to be good so keep hanging in there and even though you are killing us maybe you can turn it around and be decent.

Seems like Shaw is always our last out.

Well, I want him "out" -- "out" of the lineup for a good month or so, at least.

There were plenty of outs in our lineup tonight outside of Yelich.

You can quote me all the peripheral stats you like, I do not believe for one second that Derek Johnson's absence is not being felt.

Getting harder and harder to defend the impact.
