I just want to make sure I have everything clear in my head.

-Edward Mujica is a perfect 17 for 17 in saves
-Seth Maness had thrown like 5 pitches to get one out
-Trevor Rosenthal had thrown 1 inning in the first 3 games of the series
-Joe Kelly was also available (admittedly not been great, but still)

....and we go with BOGGS?!!!

And then we throw gas on the fire and go with Victor Marte?!

I mean come on.

Leave it to Matheny to screw up Wacha's debut by using Boggs and Marte. Still, I wish I could have watched the game, but alas I'm in Florida.

This is on MO at this point. It was insane that he was recalled to begin with based on both his "rehabilitation" performance in Memphis (5+ era, 1.88 WHIP) AND the fact that he knows that Matheny can't help not just using him but using him in crucial situations even though he's awful (3 of his 4 outings since his recall have come in close games).

Managers are always overly loyal to veteran pitchers that had good seasons for them in a prior year or years and it's the general manager's responsibility to be the rational voice in the room and take that player away from the manager.

Our biggest problem is outside of Mujica, Rosie, and Manness the rest of the bullpen is pretty bad. We're gonna wear those guys out. MO's gotta find some bullpen help at the deadline.

He probably will. They have a ridiculous amount of trade chips and 6th-7th inning guys like Mujica last year are easier to find than back of the bullpen guys which we don't need at this point with Rosenthal and Mujica pitching great.

Chris Duncan speculated that if Westbrook comes back he likes Lyons in the bullpen which should give them two good lefties in Choate and Lyons. They just need another good righthanded reliever and it's a little puzzling that Joe Kelly goes from having a solid rookie season to battling it out with Shelby Miller toe to toe for the final starting spot in spring to being an afterthought. I don't quite get Matheny's thought process there especially with Kelly's stellar bullpen history in college.

I could see MO wanting some more experience in the bullpen come the deadline as they head into the stretch and post-season but for now it's weird how underutilized Kelly has been.

That one was on Matheny, its only one game to an American League team though. Learn from the mistake and move on.

edit: Oh and most importantly, get rid of Boggs

I agree about Kelly. I'd like to see him get more work. He can't possibly do any worse than Boggs.

Regardless of how bad Boggs is, no denying the fact Wacha looked legit

I do like matheny, but I question him a lot more than I ever did T. Why he rarely uses Kelly this year, when we should be grooming him into a starter, and why he has so much confidence in veteran's like Boggs, Salas, and Marte after they continually fail, is worrisome. I will say though, its nice being on the top when you gotta figure these things out.

Joe Kelly's era is 6.75, yet people bash Boggs and not him. We have Mujica, Rosenthal, Choate, and Maness; those are our only good relievers. Everyone else sucks.

I'll give you that Kelly's numbers suck right now. But, unlike Boggs, he hasn't been consistently sucky over his career. Boggs had one good year, last year, and other than that he's been bad. Kelly's numbers are not nearly as bad as Boggs. Plus, he's got room for improvement. And it's hard to get into a rhythym when your manager refuses to use you, and instead keeps using the worst pitcher on the team.

Matheny makes some questionable calls, but overall I don't think we can really question him. I mean we do have the best overall record in baseball right now. One thing I do like though, is that he uses his young guys. Tony was all about his veterans.

I usually cringe at blues games when fans yell at our players (Jackman) but I probably would have laughed at that. At least it's more original than "YOU SUCK BREWER!

True, but it is just frustrating when you're trying to root for you team to win and you have people constantly yelling negative things, and it pretty much takes over everything. So annoying. Just enjoy the damn game, haha.

Everybody ok? My whole family is accounted for, but we're not sure about the house yet. We aren't home and can't check. Heard the Holliday Inn in Earth City got it bad.

In south county we just got a bunch of rain, but at one point the sky was purple and orange. It was pretty wild. Hope everyone is alright.
