LOL 50 pitches in 2 innings.

Once again our SP likely won't pitch more than 5 innings. 

These guys are horrible. We will need to get 8 RP due to these poor conditioned pitchers we have.

There's absolutely no reason for Riley to still be up here.

I'm 90% certain I could strike him out two times a game.

More and more holes are opening up on this team. We seriously need another SP, 3 RP, a closer, an outfielder and a catcher.

I wish my search fu was better so I could dig to see how many players had a K rate this high and didn't wash out of the league.

Not Riley's fault they figured out how to pitch him, but I blame him for not adjusting. Still lots of room for him to grow.

It's his fault that he can't even hit a fastball now. 90% of his ABs are terrible and are doing nothing but screwing him up even more.

Keeping him up is doing him a disservice and is hindering a team that's supposed to be fighting for a playoff appearance.

Jesus Riley.  How much longer are we gonna let him “figure it out” and rack up the Ks?

Do we need another Uber ?

Maybe he can split the fare with Flowers

Riley is the real reason we're looking at the OF market. He needs to go back to AAA and we all got a glimpse of how good this offense is with a big bat in LF.

Not sure who is worse between Riley and Flowers.  Both absolutely pathetic.  At least Riley has an excuse being so young

Oh I agree, something has to be done to save him. With Ender back and waiting to see how Duvall pans out, he may get sent down sooner than later. Slumps are so hard to shake

I think we will make a trade and then they will send him back to AAA.  Man, I would love Merrifield from the royals.  He is that Ben Zobrist swiss army knife type.

Give me Grienke, Giles, and Merrifield and I am ecstatic.  

2 and I am very happy

1 then I am happy with limitations.

Byrd doesn’t understand what’s happening with Flowers?  He sucks.

Why do so many pitches pop away from Tyler Flowers!? Jeez

Yesterday Joe Simpson came unglued on Tyler Flowers on the radio. He said "WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO FRAME THE PITCH? JUST CATCH THE BALL!!!"
