Arrieta is terrible. Hitters are squaring up on Arrieta. That means Arrieta would have to wish for a line drive right at a player. But more times than not, a line drive gets down for a ht. He needs to be demoted. I'am tired about hearing how unlucky he is. Anybody would be an upgrade over him right now.
Betemit better get his act together. His OBP is .298. His best position was supposed to be handling the bat but so far, he hasn't done that. He has also put together some sloppy defense.
Our bullpen is magnificent. It has been all year. And to think we've been doing this without Lindstrom for a large chunk of this season.
If Chris Davis keeps hitting the way he's been hitting, he's gonna be at first base for awhile. Yeah he strikes out alot and plays pretty crappy defense. He's shown he can hit the long ball often, he's shown he can hang in there vs. lefties, and he's shown he can keep the OBP up.
Flaherty looked horrible at the plate last night but has gotten some nice AB's put together before that.
Nick Johnson is a useless player on the roster once Pearce was acquired.
Eveland has been solid out of the pen and deserves to be in consideration for a few starts.
