Can we put Freddie and Linebrink on the waiver wire. I believe Freddie is on the take after that debacle. No rational thinking individual with his team in the playoff hunt puts their worse pitcher on the mound in a tie game situation except Freddie.
Is anyone else extremely worried about Jonny Venters? Fredi pretty much blew off a question about Jonny the other night. Given the Heyward injury debacles, the McCann issues, the Schafer issues, I would not put it past this staff to have no clue if something is up with Jonny. He’s a gamer, so he’d probably keep going out there without asking for rest or extended periods of time off. I really hope we haven’t already used him up. I 100% do not believe Fredi when he says that Jonny is fine. I can’t remember him ever giving up runs in 4 or 5 consecutive appearances. Ever.
Must win tomorrow. We got our best pitcher against an average pitcher. Gotta win tomorrow. I swear it’s never easy with his team. It sure would be nice to set up our rotation and rest some position players & bullpen arms before playoffs.(If we get there.)
I think it time to panic. Remember we end the season against the Phillies and they end against he Astros. The only thing that keeps me optimistic is that they have to play the Phillies in a 4 game series soon.
