Amusingly, Folty's error on that play saves him four earned runs. He only gets credit for two.

I've always felt that if the pitcher commits the error then the runs should be earned. Why should the pitcher be bailed out by his own error? Makes no sense to me.

This whole game isn't on Folty but I think it's pretty clear that until he has his 2018 slider, he will not be Folty as his other secondaries are nowhere near that and he's not a guy that "pitches".

He had his 2018 slider in his 1st start but he didn't have it today. Also, the whole "he doesn't pitch" thing isn't true. Him getting all these early outs in both starts makes that statement false. He got all those early outs because he was pitching and not just throwing like he had previously done. He just got rattled today in that 5th inning and couldn't stop it. That is the main issue with him. Once he gets rattled he's done. He's not gonna calm down and limit the damage. Brian Snitker left him in the game way too long!

Wait what?!

I haven't been keeping up with the roster lately, but where's Parsons? Minors?

Yes. Wes Parsons is in the minors. Biddle was put on the IL and the team called up Carle and then when Folty was activated later in the day they sent Parsons down.

So glad we brought Carle up now! Looks like a great decision!!!

I just don't get it. Where's the common sense in team management!

I'm also not here as much but I have other places to chat at. Fried was awesome yesterday. Soroka too. Ultimately two starts isn't enough to write a season book on Folty.

Oh it's not you lol. There is one poster in particular who is never here when we win, but the moment we lose a game, he is here spelling doom and gloom.

Burn the tape from this game outside of the inning Culberson pitched. The rest of the series was a good series played, in the other game that was lost, the team just got Paddack'd by a guy that could be a stud pitcher really soon. Hopefully that part of the series is more indicative of the team coming out of the slump because after the Marlins, most of the rest of the month is a bear and if you don't buckle down, this team really could be a 4th place'r.

Dude...I was thinking of that very thing yesterday. 

I mean, we have people on the boards who aren't very optimistic, but they are here win, lose, or draw. It's mainly the fact that you only appear when you can push your narrative that gets to me.

Yeah that’s really messed up. Those folks should be banned IMO
