Total disarray. No closer and no closer to getting a closer.
Jimenez doesn’t have enough to dominate and that is what any team needs in the 8th and 9th. (7th too). Rondon has lost velocity and confidence. I thought Joe might have it but 95 doesn’t cut it in today’s game. Not when you rely on your fastball in late innings.
The new standard is 98+. If you have that consistently then you pose a threat and an obstacle to your opponent.
Nick had the early swagger but it is gone. Ian is finding it difficult to lead by example. Injuries have hurt. Victor is a fainting shadow of what he was. The rotation is still in learning mode.
This team has no chance competing such as it is.
