I hate watching us pitch poorly

The Rangers are one of the easier opponents too.

They are kicking our butts.

Man, I don't care what anyone says, love me Josh Hamilton, would have loved to see him in Orange & Black.

No excuses. Too many belt high meatballs the last two nights. I know the ball was carrying but Gonzo's command was as bad as I've seen from him.

Poor fielding by the pitchers, too.

Yeah that was UGLY, last night you could say well we didn't score, that won't cut it tonight every time we scored they gave it RIGHT BACK, man I HATE THAT!

Which we really did. Yes. Bad fielding pitchers.

I had the pleasure of witnessing last nights Norris homerun derby. Reminded me of opening day when Toronto crushed everything Norris threw them. I believe they said three of the HRs were on changeups and one was on a curveball. They knew what was coming. Tonight it appears the same thing happened. Were the HR's on off speed pitches? Are Norris and Gonzalez tipping their pitches?

This is a simple case of it's not who you play but when you play them. I think Texas had lost 8 out of 10 or something before coming in. The Orioles had won, what, 7 out of 8 or something? Texas wasn't going to keep playing that bad and the Orioles weren't going to keep playing that good. The Indians scored 2 runs in three games over the weekend. They go to Tampa and beat up on them the last two nights. It's just baseball.

So ... now we have two starters - Norris and Gonzalez - throwing like batting practice pitchers. That can't continue. I really think its time to put Norris in the BP and give Gausman a legitimate shot to start on a regular basis.

And should we consider making a pitch for Cole Hamels? Do we have the necessary chips available to pull it off?

Norris's crap outing shouldn't have been unexpected. I was very surprised by Gonzo's outing, though. He's much better than that.
I think that with Gonzo, it was a matter that he just didn't have his stuff this night. It happens with just about every starting pitcher. Even Kershaw gets crushed every so often. It's a mystery why starting pitchers frequently get on the mound-- and discover that they simply don't have it that day. But it happens.

Now if a starting pitcher continues to pitch badly for game after game, then that's a sign that either the pitcher badly needs help, or else he's just not that good.

Gonzo has had one very bad start (maybe another 1 earlier in the season, I can't remember). Norris has had maybe 1 good start. I wonder who will lose his spot in the rotation?

The AL East has been bizarre. Seems like teams go on a nice winning streak and then give it back. Yankees are up and down. Blue Jays are also up and down. Tampa has been the most consistent of all the teams but seem to be going into a tailspin. Do the Orioles also go into a losing streak? No AL East team has sustained anything this year. I guess the team that plays the most consistent will win it. Right now,it looks like no one wants to stay in first place.
