    Can’t hit so can’t score runs. Having DH is actually hurting them. Rather see Lee hit.

      Would rather see Lee hit than who? And why?

        For today’s game with who is in the lineup I would rather see Lee hit them Nix. He is a rightey but has terible numbers against them.

        I don’t know who them is, but he has some of his best numbers against Toronto (.756 OPS), and has hit lefties fairly well the past three years (.739 OPS). This year, of course, he hasn’t hit anybody in the early going.

        @sheck Well its this year… Nix at DH are you kidding me.

        1) yes, it’s this year, but it’s a small sample, and what’s happened over THREE YEARS is much more meaningful and predictive in what will happen going forward.

        2) he’s not the DH

        Bottom line is nix sucks, but he’s not the only reason this team sucks again this year

        He would be if Jroll wasn’t hurt.

    The game is over now anyway. Had several chances to score but wasted them. Not Lee’s fault. Need to swap some people from triple A.

    I agree. Jayson Nix and Freddy Galvis are wasted roster spots and almost automatic outs. Need to do something about the bench but not sure what that actually is.

    Hats off to the people who can actually make it through an entire game with this team. Has there ever been a team with a bench this punchless?

      Yes, the Yankees of the Central Springfield Va in 1981 of which I was the coach.

      A quick search shows three more punchless benches in the NL this year alone: Arizona, San Fran, St. Louis all have lower OPS by their combined bench.

    No excuse for these poor performances by the 24 and 25 million dollar pitchers. They’re paid huge cash to excel. Average pitchers at best. Where is the accountability?

    • schmenkman

      May 7, 2014 at 10:56 pm

      No pitcher excels in every game, no matter how much they’re paid.

      And what sort of accountability did you have in mind?
