Game over for the Gronk

with 3 comments

Lordy, we pulled a Vermilyea again…Thanks for coming out kid- those sure were some awesome debut innings! Now back on the pile with the rest of the losers. Because our bullpen ROCKS!

And Thomson is officially done. Oh well, we strung him out as long as possible he cost us nothing. And after getting rocked 2 of his last 3 starts in AAA he was no better a 5th option than Towers and would have cost us a million dollars. Taubenheim isn’t much of a backup in case someone goes down, but Gus is throwing again…

  1. Ah, Game Over Gronk, you were great while you lasted. Thanks for the cup of coffee, hope you get the whole pot some day. Say ‘hi’ to Jamie Vermilyea for us.

  2. But wait, that makes no sense? Why the Gronk, and not Jordan De Jong, who was clearly totally ineffective???

  3. “Gibbons said the club simply needed a fresh arm in the ‘pen, considering that Lee Gronkiewicz, who was called up on June 13, pitched four innings Tuesday.”

    So he was TOO good and thus pitched too long…I dunno. We’re sorta using the last spot in our bullpen as a revolving mop up man with all our generic AAA bullpen guys. Can’t say I’m crazy about it.

    In other news, Matt “I almost pissed it all away with recreational drugs” Roney is pitching for Syracuse again.

    And League is going to take a while longer yet. And Chacin will start rehabbing in 2 weeks.
