What do you think of the bullpen? The back end needs no tweeking with Kimbrel,Venters,EOF,Moylan. They are solid as a rock. After that, it is awful. Sherrill and Linenbrink both did bad in ST and haven't been good in a couple of years. They were suppossed to be veteran guys but right now I have zero confidence in them. Martinez on some days looks dominant and others looks awful.
If it continues for the next 2 weeks-month I won't be able to stand it. We can't throw those the dominant guys out every night and expect the starters to go 7-8 every night
Idea: DFA Sherrill if it continues. There may be other options in the farm or FA but I like Minor there. I would like to see him getting innings down in AAA but I don't want to see Sherrill in there, I have to hold my breath every time he goes out there. Same goes for Linenbrink. For his spot, I'd be happy with Abreu,Ascenio or Marek. If Martinez continually struggles as well, send him down and maybe insert KK since we can't trade him or Lopez.
I hope all 3 improve but if it becomes a common trend, it needs to be addressed. What ya think?
