Hard Luck Rotation

Jeff Piecoro of Fox Sports just called Kyle Lohse a “hard luck loser.” It's a phrase we've been hearing a lot lately, but it's bullshit. I mean bullpen. Luck has nothing to do with it; it's all about lack of lead-protecting skill.

The offense has been on-and-off, which they're going to do, but the bullpen has been bad since week two of the season. Bringing up Brad Salmon has failed to be the magic bullet, and calling up Gary Majewski once he's available again might just make things worse.

We can't count on our relievers. We can't count on our manager. We can't count on our GM.

Are you there, Mr. Castellini?
