@JohnStacyAgreed. Look at that Texas series. We score PLENTY of runs. And the, now as I call it, blowpen couldn't hold the runs down. Here is what I propose, on the coaching side, and it may be difficult, but if executed properly, will work, because chemistry will be everything. Two hitting coaches and two pitching coaches. I say this because just listening to the commentators (Gub and Langston) they see things that I think Butcher is missing. But there's so much going on with the blowpen, I can't blame Butcher for missing them. If you have two pitching coaches that can work well with each other, they can compare notes and hopefully, rectify the problem. The same goes for the hitting side, albeit, hitting has been improving.

Agree with Gary & John. Mike can only cook with the ingredients he's given. Dipoto served a recipe for disaster. As I have said on other posts, Dipoto is accountable for the bullpen he assembled. EVERYONE knew before the ink was dry that Blanton was a mistake. Look at Hanson, Then we have two bullpen pitchers that have been on the DL since the beginning of the season. What a waste! In reality, Mike has done a pretty good job in scoring runs, however, the pitching staff is so bad we can't win a game with 5 runs. I find Mike Scisoscia, not guilty.
