I am so done with this bullpen

I have zero confidence in most of our pen.

We have 3 specialists, Ohman, Castillo and Meredith and neither of them are really any good.

Albers will look good one day and terrible the next...I have no confidence in him to do anything.

JJ is relatively worthless in a close game right now.

Right now, all we have out there that you can have any confidence in is Berken and Hendrickson.

Mickolio has good upside but has no idea where the ball is going right now.

I would love to see them get rid of the 3 specialists and Albers. They just aren't any good.

Move Berken to the set up role...and JJ into the middle innings.

I don't know about anyone else, but I have zero confidence in the O's pen right now outside or Hendrickson and Berkens.

Albers, Meredeth and Johnson are all sporting ERAs above 6.00, and it seems like Ohman rarely has any idea where the ball is going despite his 0.00 ERA.

Koji can't get back fast enough in my opinion. I'd love to see Trembley put Uehara, Hendrickson and Mickolio in to the primary late inning roles, dump Meredeth and Albers and use Johnson in less critical situations for a while.

Any takers?

I was gonna ask if Trembley always overmanaged the bul;lpen like he seemed to do tonight, but then I went and saw that every bullpen pitcher but Hendrickson walked the first batter he faced. Hendrickson got a sacrifice, so I guess he *could* have walked a batter too, given a chance. This bullpen really does inspire no confidence.

I still think Trembley overmanages the bullpen.

The bullpen would be fine if it didn't have to keep holding 1 run leads...

Every bullpen gives up runs. You just don't notice it because those teams are usually leading by several runs.

If our offense could actually give a decent cushion, this bullpen would be fine.

Holding one run leads would be a lot easier if you didn't always walk the first hitter you faced.

BTW - This is my biggest pet peeve with relievers.
