    It's time already. Time to get a legitimate closer, that is. Geez.

    Unreal. And will probably end up getting fleeced in a trade if we don't get/sign Kimbrel.

    At this rate, ownership will try everyone in the organization who can spell the word "closer" before actually getting one who can do the job.

    Could be wrong but sure feels like these last 2 years or so we have been losing to the Reds more than we should be.

    It can’t be that hard to throw a scoreless inning can it? Why aren’t more people upset with this?

    Word for word what I said this inning.
    Bust isn't a strong enough word anymore.

    Do you want Darvish to stay in or turn it over to the bullpen? Coin flip

    Looks like Maddon sticking with Darvish

    Not a great start by any means, but 7 innings out of him was just what the bullpen needed. Finish it off!

    Got Puig on pitch 100.
    Longest start of the year for Darvish.
    One run lead for the BP is like...

    How desperate are we right now that we have to trot out Darvish in the 8th and have it bite us in the ***?

    Can’t believe Joe left him in another inning.

    Dammit. Hard to say it wouldn't have happened with the bullpen though. Tough spot
