It is really sad to see the lineup they put on the field. They are down to only two, maybe three starters from the beginning of the year. The rest are AAA and AA guys like stated above. But you would think that minor leaguers would at least be able to score a couple of runs once in a while. They've scored what, 1 run in the 3 games of the Chicago series so far? And this is against 2 pitchers that have been struggling all year and a minor league call-up.
Front office has their work cut out for them this off-season. Priority #1 - a real-middle infield. Priority #2 - A horse to lead the starting pitching. If doesn't even have to be an ace, just someone who is going to be healthy all year and can win over 12 games. A horse won't help if they don't have an infield that can make the plays behind him. Priority #3 - middle relief. I think they'll work a new deal with Nathan so he doesn't cost so much plus they've got Perkins on the back end. They've got no one to rely on in the 6th or 7th innings. Duensing probably needs to go back there along with Swarzak.
