Oh gives up a walk off 3 run HR to Bell. Cards fall 5-2.

Winning streak begins tomorrow.

Forget middle of the order bat, this team needs someone who can get outs late in games.

It's time to give Tuivailala a shot. He's been prepared to close by the organization and is pitching well this season, so why not?

Oh doesn't have swing-'n-miss stuff. At least Good Rosie does. Sad ................

Doesn't help that we can't score a run after the 1st. But for Polanco's showboating laziness there'd have been no bottom of the 9th.

Disappointing start of 2nd half looked just like summary of 1st half.

Disappointing start to the second half. Leake wasn't stellar by any means but it wasn't a terrible start either.

Oh definitely needs to be moved from the closer's role.

Offense has one good inning and then shuts it down again, got to find more consistency.

Give Rosenthal the chance to close again. Use Tui in the 8th inning set-up role. At this point like everyone knows we need to find THE GUY or GUYS who can get outs at the end of the game. I'd use Oh after Bowman at this point. You can't keep throwing him out there in critical situations expecting a different result. Hopefully Siegrist can get back to being himself.

R27, how many games has the bullpen/closers cost us this season? Do you know?

Shockingly, I don't think it's that bad compared to rest of MLB.

First-place Brewers have lost a ton of games late, one of worst in MLB as I recall a FSMW graphic.
