K-Rod SUCKS

Post by MWmetalhead » Sun May 07, 2017 7:38 am

This is Joe Nathan all over again!!! This putz has already cost the Tigers FOUR victories in this young season!!!

Instead of 19-10 or 18-11, this team is instead 15-14.

Disgusting!!!

This is on Avila.

Loyalty is nice, but it doesn't win games with guys that can no longer perform at an MLB level.

Puts Ausmus in a no-win situation. He could bench him, but then that puts too much load on a bullpen that's already too thin.

Justin Wilson, in his first save opportunity since being handed the closer's role, struck out Danny Espinoza, Martin Maldonado and Cliff Pennington to end the night. He did not need to be reminded the ever-dangerous Mike Trout was hitting fourth that inning.

“You don’t want to get to him,” said Wilson, whose fastball was sitting at 97 mph. “The guy is who is he for a reason; he’s a great hitter. I didn’t have to face him. Once I got two outs and Pennington was up, I am going right after him.
Great job, Justin!!!

This also goes to show what a friggin' MORON Brad Ausmus is. He had doubts as to whether or not Justin Wilson could handle the role. In a very high leverage situation, Wilson looked terrific.

K-Rod was trotted out in the 13th inning last night and he promptly gave up the go-ahead HR to Chris Davis. It's time to get rid of him completely. The season is only about a quarter through and K-Rod already has five losses (in 14 1/3 innings), which is tied for the MLB lead!

I agree. Granted by that time, the only one left in the bullpen was Sanchez, who wouldn't have been much better. When they didn't get the walk-off hit in the 12th, I knew they were going to lose.

The money argument (you have to pay K-Fraud and Sanchez to get rid of them) doesn't fly with me. You sell fewer tickets / beer / hot dogs because people aren't (or shouldn't) going to buy tickets to see that garbage.

Earn your paycheck Al Avila - suck it up and dump those guys and figure out some serviceable replacements pronto. If he can't fix it, or at least make it less of an auto-loss when those guys come in, he should be gone.

Keep in mind Wilson blew the save in the 9th. Face it, the entire pen has issues.

Yep, a 2 out homer. Still, he's the best 9th inning option right now.

Justin Wilson is now said to be one of the most valuable pieces on the Tigers pitching staff. I certainly agree.

DON' T FORGET - less than 75 days ago, dip shit Ausmus was questioning whether Wilson could even handle the closer's role.
