Breaking down the streak: what’s gone wrong and how much does it mean for the long haul?

Constanza? Be nice to have Sutton right about now. Wren’s scorecard taking a hit this summer.
You Shakespeare types (Anne?) must see the Ralph Fiennes directed Coriolanus that hit DVD/ Blu-ray today. Superb stuff.
Bub – thanks for the reminder. AND thanks for writing “anus” in a way that it’s not filthy at all.
Frediot finally takes Pastornicky out the 2 hole.
I love that tweet about Craig Kimbrel. It would be so nice to see him in a crucial situation from the 6th to 8th innings. Why does our best relief pitcher have to only pitch with a lead in the 9th inning? Dumb rules.
4 run lead. Must win
Uggs! Great to see on the big screen at the trivia bar. Go Braves!!
Dear Randall, please stop wetting yourself and completely abandoning your plan each time there is the slightest threat by the other team. Yours, Atlanta.
Uh oh, base runner. Here comes a four pitch walk to Holliday….
Or a double play! Nice job, Delgado!
Well, here comes Fredi’s pitcher-bats-eighth wet dream: Constanza leading off. Curious to see how it goes.
Single! So far, so good. Please don’t run on Molina…
See, I’ve always loved that Constanza kid!
Of course, this will only embolden Fredi when it comes to Jose in the future.
And who wouldn’t??
I know, right? Probably see Constanza pitching out of the bullpen in this game.
Please Delgado don’t waqk anybody in the 6th inning. Wait until the 7th so Fredi wont bring in Durbin. Too Late
Go get ‘im, Fredi. Game’s too important.
RULE #1,233 of the Baseball Book: You can only bring in your best relievers in the 7th, 8th, and 9th innings.
Rule #1,234: Never ever bring in your best reliever unless you have a lead of 3 runs or less in the 9th and ONLY in the 9th.
Rule #1,235: You can bring in your best reliever (closer) in a blowout to get some work but never in a crucial situation in the 7th or 8th innings.
Over their last 8 appearances, Durbin has been better than EOF, fwiw.
We sure as hell better win this game because we just signed on for a week solid of the Durbin-Constanza show.
Over his last 38 appearances, Cory Gearrin has been 294 times better than anyone in our bullpen not named Kimbrel.
