Lets face it Omar did nothing to get another good starter for this team .Sure he got 3 closers and so far only one has done the job .They better light a fire under Redding and get him throwing again because once they go beyond Santana its a toss up who can win a game between Perez ,Maine,Hernandez we don't have a solid starter that can throw strikes.If the pitching coach can't see that these guys are constantly throwing a sailing fast ball away to left handed hitters and missing the plate by at least 6 to 8 inches ,well damn throw inside and let it release over the outside corner of the plate . Wheres the curve balls from our pitchers ? Santana is the only one to throw it . Everything is a fast ball or slider and change .You throw the curve ball right at the hitter and let it break over the plate .Thats if you can throw a curve. Omar I think you might think about calling Pedro at least he knew how to set up a batter ,What you have know is a team of throwers not pitchers and your never going to win with them. Dump the slackers and get some guys that are hungry to play ball and hustle . DelGardo is #1 to get the boot ,he was great till the pitchers caught up with him and he still can't hit the inside pitch unless its served up at about 60mph.Get Mike Jacobs back from KC and send the dead bet DelGardo there with some other bait like a catcher that can't hit his weight . If you can't get the job done Omar ,take the quite man (Jerry) with him we need a fire in the hole or its 2008 all over again .
