  1. I’d rather see Schmidt stay in the rotation and stop nibbling. He didn’t want to challenge hitters up by 6 last night. Why would he be an option in leverage spots? They need someone who can give them 6 innings and if he’d spent less time trying to dot Keirmeier and the backup C last night, he would have gotten there

    1. I totally agree, it’s just a question of whether he CAN do it. If he can, then yes, no doubt he’s more valuable in the rotation, but if he can’t, let someone else take a crack at it.

      He’s spoken about the difficulty adjusting from the pen to the rotation after his success being more aggressive in higher leverage innings in 2022.

  2. I’m a bit miffed at the sitting of Oswaldo the day before. Just ride the f*ing hot hand instead of systematically dousing it in ice water. Yes, the player should be able to deal with sitting for a day, but you’re supposed to be making success as easy as possible for the player, not the polar reverse. Have Oswaldo get used to being good on a daily basis – as long as it lasts. He’ll cool off eventually, that’s when you’ll get the other players their playing time. It’s probably nothing in this one case, but it’s a bafflingly stupid tactic to apply across the board.

    and…

    Can we identify who we were before the mass renaming?
    UJD’s still UJD, I see. Knuckle Curve, excalibur is Don, Clay is Clay, Brian, Big Fan. Who’s Calla, Dolce? …there was one more. One of you is sic…….? Yfin? Who else is still here under a different name?
