I'd feel much better with Minor than I would KK or Lowe for sure. I gotta tell ya though, JJ has been a welcome surprise (to me anyway) that he's been solid of late. I still get nervous thinking about being in the playoffs with Lowe and/or KK and Hanson as the arms we have to lean on. Those three are not doing well right now. They give up runs early and in bunches. It could get ugly when facing playoff caliber teams playing for a pennant.
Hanson has been a huge disappointment. I though he'd be lights out this year. Luckily Huddy is holding it down pretty good and JJ seems to be coming along. Hopefully at least one of the three can get it together and start rolling here at just the right time. All three including KK are a lot better than this. They just gotta go out, put on their big boy undies and get the chit done. Of course that's easy for me to say sitting here typing on a laptop. lol
On the flip side, the bats are getting hot. Heyward and Gonzo both are coming on, Mac is proving that this is indeed his team to lead while Prado and Omar have been straight up monsters, as per usual. Hope Lee will come charging up sooner rather than later. And last but not least, can we please not put Melky "MOLASSES" Cabrera in center? As a matter of fact, anywhere in the OF? If Rick Ankiel isn't starting let's put whoever is, weather it's Hinske, Diaz or even Brooks in right or left and move JayHay to center. He has both the arm and the speed. I understand Melky is a switcher but so is Brooks. Plus Conrad is faster and has the better stick at the plate iyam. It just gets old watching routine singles roll slowly past him for doubles and trips. Dude is slow... Too damn slow. lol
