6 walks, 3 HBP and two errors. That's eleven free baserunners. Yeah, Clint probably should have used Melancon and/or Grilli, but the rest of the staff has to hold up their end of the bargain and pick up some of the slack sometimes. We're not going anywhere if we're relying on Melancon and Grilli to be utterly lights out every time they take the mound while the rest of the pen delivers mediocrity.

Hughes has already been shuffled off to Indinapolis, and Watson's doing his best to receive the same treatment. I can't imagine Mazzaro has the longest leash out there, and Wilson's really got to cut the **** with all these walks lately.

I think I might be more at odds, perhaps, with Hurdle pulling Locke early for Wilson. You're taking out the lefty with control issues for another lefty with control issues. Locke's pitch count was low, so I really don't comprehend the thinking there.
