Well, that was heartbreaking. You gotta think that the bullpen gets at least a share of the blame. Bronson Arroyo threw 129 pitches, and even though he was still fairly strong late, if Jerry Narron had a bullpen — or at least one good reliever — someone else would have been in there at that time.
But you can’t blame Narron for preferring to have Arroyo out there instead of one of the jokers that Krivsky has given him for the bullpen.
What a disastrous road trip this has been so far….
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
