    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.

    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.

    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.
