Bailey's last clean inning was on April 24.
Notin is beside himself no doubt - another one of Ben's blunders that he just can't part with. Last time I checked he was traded for to close - not implode in the middle innings...maybe he can catch the Mort Clay virus and disappear forever...
Seriously why would anyone defend this lousy pitcher at all given his disasterous run with the Sox and injury history?
That is a fairly stupid assessment of what I said.
I know it is hard to belive, but MLB teams do NOT operate on the "He had a bad month - RELEASE HIM" mentality, and for a good reason.
And they also do not hold on to players because of whom they gave up to acquire them.
While neither of us know what it takes to run an MLB franchise, your perception strikes me as being about as far from reality one can get...
You said the exact same thing about Mortenson - that he was a good pitcher with just a few bad outings...and now he's been released...you and Ben literally have to be hit with a two by four to know when someone is done...
