[quote="wildcat83"][quote="Brewcrewin07"][quote="Joey Meyer Bombs"][quote="BruisedCrew"]A necessary win to avoid a disgusting loss. But, another one that exposes the Brewers problems. There have been a lot of those this year.[/quote]

Did the problems really need exposing? I think everyone in the league knows the pen is a dumpster fire.[/quote]

The formula going forward needs to be Albers 6th(or 7th if starter goes 6), Pomeranz, Hader...that's your 3...lean on them Craig.[/quote]

Setting specific pitchers for specific innings is about the worst strategy you can have. Use them when you need them. If the biggest ABs in the game happen to come in the 6th, use Hader in the 6th. Do what you gotta do, no set roles please...[/quote]

My whole point is, those are the only three I trust...I want NO part of anyone else in the pen...use them as LITTLE as possible.

They don't have a choice. The rotation is in shambles, and those that remain aren't trusted to go past 5 innings. They are going to have to identify at least two more arms that can be trusted in close games if they what to legitimately contend for a playoff spot.

Might be the ugliest win of the season, but it's another W.


I think this season has more candidates for ugliest win of the season than any in Brewers history.


That's a lot of W's then!


No, it means not enough solidly played and pitched wins.

My two cents on today --



1) Houser's absence is just killing this bullpen. It's just had so many effects, and is causing them to lean heavily on Hader, which is probably not helping with his struggles. Before, they at least had one more reliable bridge to gap the late innings. Now they have no one -- they can matchup lefties with Claudio, but other than that, it's just straight winging it after the starter leaves. Houser isn't a good enough starter to justify how much his loss to the pen has hurt us. They've got to find a way to get him back in the role he excels at. Faria is not the answer. Pomeranz has been fine, but he's clearly not a guy they want to lean on. They can lean more heavily on Devin Williams, they can call up Black, these are options, but to be clear, they are just lottery ticket moves. Just because Williams and Black have great stuff does not mean they will automatically translate into late inning options. They need Houser back in the pen.

2) On that note, I really don't know how they're going to be able to hang in there with this pen the rest of the way. I can't imagine that guys like Suter and Wahl are really going to move the needle much. They really need a guy to step up in a big way. I'd say Corbin Burnes, Freddy Peralta, and Jimmy Nelson have the best chance of making that happen, but I'm not holding my breath on any. Two weeks ago I thought we finally had another late inning guy in Peralta, and now he's taken a step back.

3) Thames seems to have a knack for the big late inning walkoffs. Well done.

4) Somehow, it's a 4 game winning streak. We'll certainly take it any way we can get it, no style points at this juncture of the season.

I don't mind ugly wins but it would be sure nice if it didn't happen 35 times in a season.
