Gee, whatta surrprise

Tyler Walker goes on the DL today with shoulder soreness. That wouldn't happen to be because of abuse, would it?

Nah, Father Alou would never abuse any of his bullpen pitchers. Pitching four out of five days is normal for relievers around the league.

8th pitcher this year to go on the DL for the Giants. Just watch, Scott Eyre is going to be next...

Daniel said...

Well, if Eyre does go, at least EVERYONE should now agree that it doesn't matter, what with the Giants 8 back (7 if the Padres lose).

Perhaps he can be saved when the rosters expand...with Felipe at the helm, they ought to just bring up all pitchers.

Pops said...

If only Ayre is left, maybe he will see more than 1 batter per appearance before Alou brings in someone else to serve up a homerun ball to the next hitter in the lineup.

Daniel said...

Yeah, Pops, I wonder how long it'll take for Eyre to get Felipe to trust him with more than 1 left-handed batter every now and then...it's only been 4 months and he's still used as a LOOGY sometimes. What a waste.
