Gammons: The next 27 games

How many of those teams are as far under .500 as the Angels?

 

This isn't make or break time.

 

The Halos are already broken and unlike last year, there's very little reason to believe that they'll at least partially right the ship. By the end of last year, they were one of the better teams in baseball, but the horrid start doomed them. This year... forget about it.

Getting Weaver back will help, maybe Madsen and Jepsen too....but heck, the starting staff, outside of Weaver, has been about what you'd expect and we're still terrible.....Blanton wasn't bad last night and, after a couple of clunkers early, has been his usual mediocre self....same with Hanson and Vargas....CJ has been a wild and inconsistent 6 inning guy but that's probably who he is at this point....bullpen has been awful but do Madsen and Jepsen straighten that out?  Maybe, but enough to get us back in the playoff hunt?  Wouldn't bet on that.....

They gave up 3 runs last night...... Our offense should be able to notch a Win when we get a pitching performance like that. The night before wasn't poor pitching either, it was poor defense. The rotation has performed a lot better over the previous couple of weeks. Once Weaver returns, and it sounds like Madson is getting close barring any setbacks, guys will start settling into their roles.

 

No way to put together a winning streak with this pitching staff, so forget it. At least we will have a protected draft pick next season.

I agree, we should have won 1-0 last night, how dare this pitching staff give up more than 0 runs.

Yes it's the same Weaver who has always pitched fairly poorly in Arlington since you want to go off such a small sample size this season.

 

Career in Arlington : 17GS  4Wins 8Loses 17HR 5.07 ERA

 

He only gave up 2 hits Opening Day in whats considered a hitters park. So until I see more, he is still our ACE and I don't even have a question in my mind about it.

 

His return will help more than you think.

Is this the 85 mph Weaver that looked medicore before the freak elbow incident? I do not think getting Weaver back is going to lift this team out of the hole they dug.

You also wonder if Blanton and whomever else would pitch well with a lot of runs or are they just pitching to the score. I mean, we scored 6 in the first game and lost. It's just a nightmare of a season.
