    Is anyone else starting to get aggravated with the poor pitch selection and late run games he's giving up?

    Manny has been driving me insane of late.

    I love what Delcarmen can do for this team.

    Before tonight he hadn't given up a run in the last 13 innings. It was a horrible night all around. I'm not worried.

    Really? I like the kid. He is tough to hit with his great slider and the only negative thing about him right now is that he walks too many guys.

    I'd rather see him over Timlin or Lopez anyday.

    Including yesterdays clunker, Delcarmen has a 2.82ERA and 1.12WHIP since the start of May. He has been just fine.

    As far as Hansen, he's actually been very good with the game on the line, but horrible in mop-up duty. Small sample sizes all around, but in a tie game batters have a .077BA and .451OPS off Hansen, and in a 1 run game they have a .231BA and .619OPS. But when the lead or deficit is 4 runs or more, batters have a .353BA and 1.110OPS off him. In high leverage situations (according to WPA) batters have a .143BA and .429OPS off Hansen, and in low leverage situations batters have a .263BA and .811OPS.

    Amazingly enough, the more pressure he's in, the better he's performed.

    Timlin has been horrible of late hasn't he.

    I'm all for persevering through form drop outs, but giving up decent leads 2 out drive me insane.

    This pitching needs to be sorted out. We've been rubbish of late.
