What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
4 out of his last 5 starts have been mediocre to horrible. His ERA is steadily increasing and his velocity is down from its mid-season peak. Looks like he's out of gas. Any way to give him a break?
I'm trying to maintain optimism but I have very little faith in Lewis and Holland at this point. So I was hoping Harrison might be the one to shock the baseball world in the postseason. Maybe he still can, but it looks like he would need significant rest first. Can that happen?
In sept when players like Hurley Jackson Ramirez ugh brett tomko. They could get a start and guys like Harrison holland and ogando would be skipped and stay fresh
Hamburger(not a joke) has looked very good in his three starts at AAA after he was converted from a reliever to a starter. 15.1 ip, 9 h, 2 r, 2 er, 1 hr, 3 bb, 13 k; Harrison even said after his last start against the White Sox that he was tired and wanted to work through it.
I think Dcaggie was on to something yesterday. It seems like all the guys are gassed both physically and mentally. Well except CJ because he's a ninja, but everyone else looks exhausted
When Harrison was quoted as saying he was "TIRED" he was'nt kidding. A pathetic lifeless performance
Fatique makes cowards of us all...........Vince Lombardi.......
The problem with bringing up minor leaguers is that the Angels are likely to keep it close at least for the next two weeks, maybe longer. Would be nice if the Rangers could wrap it up a few weeks early, but that may not happen this year.
The Rangers have now given up 48 runs in their last 6 games. The starting pitching has got to rebound.
Harrison fastball: 90-92..usually 94-96. Matty Harrison is crying for help.
Harrison with 90-92 mph fastball. Yikes! It's really unlikely that one of the AAA guys making a spot start would be as bad as he was tonight. Give the arms some rest.
