    He has come to the plate less than 25 times since his DL stint. I'd give it another week or five before worrying about it.

    Well, at least Gray has lowered my blood pressure - I could care less about the game anymore.

    I don't know. There can be no other explanation. Just lousy.

    He's bound to go an entire inning without giving up a run someday. Patience, grasshopper.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    127 relievers have thrown 40 or more innings, Jeff Gray ranks....

    120th - ERA
    125th - FIP
    127th - xFIP
    124th - WAR
    126th - SIERA

    I'm fine with having a Gray or Blackburn on the roster. At the back of the pen, it's inevitable.

    But this team shouldn't have two of those guys. No team should have two of those guys.

    Looks like Perkins will pitch the 9th. Awesome.

    So you're saying he's not the worst at everything. I may have to rethink my position and ease up on him a bit.

    You just don't follow Gardy close enough Lev, I heard him say so himself last night at around 1AM, he simply couldn't pitch Perkins last night in the 9th- he HAD to have him available for today...

    How about a side order of MMM Stew?- (Mansihp (sp)/Marquis/Maloney) with a Tyler Roberston apertif? These are still other pitchers on the worst staff in baseball that the FO has, or continues to deem, MLB-worthy.
