Well that last game sucked, I commented in the recap thread that it was a tough one to take, it felt like a punch in the gut and I did feel bad for Gregg. I really wanted him to come out and have a shut down inning to wash the bad taste of the other night out where he was pulled but unfortunately it was not to be. To top it off that was the first runs our Bullpen had given up since before the break. Extra tough.
Well I don't necessarily agree a move should happen I think at this point Cito is definitely considering moving to a closer by committee approach giving more shots to Downs and Camp who have been great. I really think Frasor has played himself out of the role.
Today in the middle game of the 3 game series we have Jesse Litsch taking on Anthony Lerew. Jesse is fighting for his spot in the rotation and hopes to put together decent back to back outings. Last time out he went 7 Innings giving up 3ER and striking out 5 while throwing 99 pitches, while he pitched decently he still took the loss dropping him to 0-4 on the season in 6 games. The Royals starter hasn't been much better in his limited number of games this season. He has pitched 25 innings in 5 games. Last game out he lasted only 2.2IP giving up 8 Earned runs. I'll have that please.
|2010 - Jesse Litsch||0-4||6||6||0||0||0||0||31.2||34||23||23||6||10||12||6.54||1.39|
|2010 - Anthony Lerew||1-3||5||5||0||0||0||0||25.0||31||21||21||8||7||16||7.56||1.52|
For the lineup we are likely to see some changes tonight, however I won't be around at game-time and unfortunately no one has the lineups posted yet. As yet I can only speculate. That being said it looks like Escobar is going to miss a game or two and is currently listed as day to day with a right hand contusion. Test Results were negative for a fracture according to Blue Jays twitter feed. So that's a bit of good news.
Today's title comes from Avatar and seemed appropriate given our numbers of misplays yesterday. As mentioned I won't be around at game-time so if someone can post the lineups that would be great
