.....and lately he's been doing this against poor teams. When we get to the playoffs, we will have one experienced starter with declined velocity (Weaver), a 27 year old rookie who has never pitched in the playoffs (Shoemaker), another inexperienced starter who has won 5 games all year (Santiago), a dysfunctional veteran (Wilson), and after that it's all bullpen baby. We better hit and run like scared jack rabbits.

5 innings, 108 pitches

 

WTF is this guy's deal?! Did we sign a starter or a long reliever?

We signed a starter to a five year contract we should have signed to a two year contract. But when the owners are this wealthy, this is the result - commitments that are too long for their own good.

I am not saying this was a terrible start, but when you win by this margin you hope your starter can give you some innings.

I liked one poster's idea of doing what the Giants did and leaving him off the playoff roster like they did with Zito. Forget $$$ and take the players who are actually doing well. At the very least, he wouldn't be needed in the ALDS since it's a shorter series

 

Based on production, he doesn't belong. 6+ ERA since June. 5 quality starts in his last 17 outings. That's Joe Blanton territory.

I don't see Rasmus as a long term option at starter. That means they need to sign one, maybe two SP in the offseason since we can't rely on CJ and Richards could miss a month. Peavy is one guy they should look at IMO. Got hit around in a hitters yard like Fenway but has been much better after moving to a pitchers park at AT&T.
