4-0 against the Padres, 2-13 against everyone else. That bullpen is dumpster fire right now.



Not unexpected though right? This team is built to suck right now. They aren't trying to win as an organization at the major league level.

They are basically stretching until June so they can bring up more of the young talent. They are performing better than last year, but the major league product is just awful right now because of the moves they've made to build up the farm system.

I think they will likely finish this year like they did last year with a flurry to get to .500 but yeah starting pitching through the awful bullpen, it's just not a good ball club right now.

The Battery is definitely cool. It will be a big draw. It artificially, but rather successfully, recreates the neighborhood feel of a Wrigley or Fenway. There's bars, restaurants, retail (which I think is dumb) and a theatre.

Went for BP. A guy wasn't paying attention and took one off the chest. A kid misjudged another off the head. At 400ish feet, that's gotta hurt.

Well they're not awful coming out of the break; actually have a middle of the pack record with a pretty decent lineup. The pitching has been all over the place though and that doesn't look to change anytime soon.
The rebuild is going better than Philly's & the Mets turned out to be a mess so that's cool to watch. And the same ol' Marlins story.
