    Even if that were true, Liriano doesn't come with Thole attached at the hip. That alone makes him much better.

    A 4 hour game that a non-baseball fan would have tuned out of hours ago. There's no fix for this time issue. This is baseball.

    One or two of Leone, Tepera or Loup will be taking a plane to Buffalo after tonight to get a fresh arm(s) for tomorrow's game.. games like this can tax a pen. Really need 6 good innings from the Sanchize tomorrow..

    I'm at work and couldn't watch the game but seems like people are overreacting again. Liriano will be fine. I thought it was a dumb idea for him to pitch without Martin behind the plate.

    Bad decison by Gibby, but Liriano will bounce back
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    Well we got Gibbby 1.0 tonite, instead of the Gibby 2.0 we all loved and enjoyed so much for the first 3 games(even with the first 2 loses).

    -Not having Martin catching Liriano
    -Let Liriano and Howell shit the bed for too long when it was so bloody obbvious ther got nothing going

    I'd rather have a good defensive catcher, than this shitty Salty.

    Jesus christ, did you guys even watch the game? NO catcher was going to do anything to stop that meltdown by Liriano.

    What was Gibby supposed to do? Every time a reliever shits the bed for 2-3 batters, replace them? Are you aware that there are a finite number of relievers available in the bullpen?

    Saltalamacchia catching Liriano had absolutely nothing to do with his performance. Liriano just has a start here and there where he loses his control completely.

    Gibby was fine tonight. His players didn't perform, any time you need to pull your starter in the first inning, you're kind of up against the wall. I don't think he's done anything that I'd complain about so far this season. He's been excellent.

    The right catcher can make all the difference. I disagree with your statement.

    The right catcher can't play all 162 games in that position, either.

    Going to Howell for that long was a bad move IMO. Clear after 2 batters he didn't have it yet was left in to face another 3(2?). Howell shouldn't be facing any RHB, Loup is the one you want to use against both types of batters.
