Papelbon could not appear in today’s game, the one the bullpen lost because he was sore all over. He blamed it on the “daily grind of the season”. He’s appeared in less than half the team’s games. What grind?
Was it really wise to let Hamels throw 133 pitches after he was on the DL for tendonitis? The answer is “no”. While the bullpen is terrible, that’s way too many pitches for someone who had an arm injury.
I know that posts have been sparse, but I will try to get a few more on here soon…
