Middleton has damaged UCL - Seeking 2nd opinion

88 posts in this topic

He's either ticketed for TJS or will end up trying the same thing JC Ramirez/Heaney/Richards tried, which still will likely mean his season is over regardless. Eppler will have to pull out some magic tricks in fixing this shaky pen that just got worse

Likely won't be back until 2020, unfortunately. Eppler better be on the phone. This team needs 2-3 reliable relievers, at least.

For now, Parker 9th inning, Anderson 8th inning (two games off, hopefully good rest, don't overuse), Ramirez/Alvarez 7th inning, Pena and Wood next in line, Johnson limited to 2 appearances per week, send BadRock to SLC   

Use some of that available tax threshold money to get a solid late innings guy in here by June 1.  Maybe the asking price goes down a little by then?

Well, damn. Time to hope for the best. Fortunately we don't have a shortage of 7th and 8th inning guys. The problem is we don't even have one 9th inning guy.

Fireman putting out flaming dumpster pic from yesterday more relevant than ever concerning our bullpen.

Yeah, im expecting the worst here. Can we go one month without a pitchers arm falling off? That would be nice.

True enough.  I guess it doesn’t matter that much.  He comes back when he comes back.  We needed bullpen help before.  Need it even more now.  

Herrera just got more expensive.

Just another reason it was a bad decision not to invest in the BP.

Yup.  You can't wait around.  Moves need to be moved now.

Takes 2 to tango though. Hard to acquire good talent this early in the season even from teams who clearly stink. They aren't gonna be in sell mode in mid-May

That sounds reasonable and doable
