SnakeBytes 9/10: More Bulllllllllllllllllllllpen Woes

New, 22 comments

Our bullpen now has 21 losses on the season. Surprised it isn't more? Me too. More surprisingly, the joint team leaders are no longer with the team, as Ziegler and Clippard both had three losses to lead the bullpen. Maybe that's La Russa and Stewart's "old-school" idea of how to make the bullpen better!

So You Want a Cinderella Story?
Ok, I'd pull for the Mariners and maybe the Astros or Royals. The Pirates are impossible to like and the Yankees? If I wanted to root for a group of rich, entitled brats I'd root for US Men's Swimming.

Giants at D-backs
Archie Bradley goes for his third straight win; Johnny Cueto gets the ball for the Giants. Game is at 5:10 Arizona time.

MLB Reverse Standings
The D-backs are solidly in top-five pick zone, but there's probably no catching the Twins. Just as well. I'm not sure the fanbase could handle another top pick being dealt, but the majority will probably survive a #5 pick being traded.
