I get what you are saying with the 1st part but....

The fact that the Braves HAD TO put up 25 runs in order to win says a lot.

If the game was closer than 8 runs in the 9th, you wouldn't have seen Tomlin. Probably would have seen Melancon instead.

That doesn't mean we didn't give up the runs.

And ya'll thinking Luke was fine well idk man...

Guy can't pitch the 9th and can't pitch with a huge lead in the 5th.

Hey don't put me on the Luke train lol. It's well documented that he is uhhhh inconsistent. With as many base runners as he seems to have, it's a wonder he hasn't given up more runs.

We gave up runs, but look at the situation man. Had the game been close, Tomlin isn't coming in. Had it been someone else coming in and getting shelled, I would feel differently, but it's Tomlin. Dude won't be here in October barring injury. He's here to eat innings right now and that's it.

Can't see this team beating the Dodgers at this rate. Bullpen will need to get a lot better

To be fair we have exact same number of blown saves as Dodgers with virtually identical saves and save percentage.  Bullpen sucks but we arent off par with the Dodgers there

I do have to wonder if us signing Duda was in part because we knew of Riley's issue. 

Ehh, maybe. I’d venture it was more to do with signing a familiar face to potentially give some September ABs to.

Nah, injury happened yesterday. Duda was brought in for the same reason as last year. PH in September and run into one or two.

LMAO it's a league wide problem now so it's OK.

Seems most people are on extreme sides of spectrum. Our bullpen has been poor and awful during stretches that is a true statement. Poor bp performance across the league is also a true statement. Our bp matches up closely tp many post season contenders. AA did an outstanding job getting bp help. That is a true statement. Saying solely money prevented us from getting proper bp personnel this trade deadline is oatently false. You are rightly concerned and even frustrated. But some of these things arent mutually exclusive

28-3

2012 NFCCG

1 World Series 

World Series lost with 2-0 lead

Huge choke job in 2009 (?)

I wonder why we have trust issues.

Only in Atlanta could a team get to 20 over .500, 6 games up in the division, take 2 of 3 on the road against one of the top teams in MLB and still get killed by the fans.

Cause of 28-3 and the fact that Georgia teams are alergic to winning championships.

Hope it’s not the case, but couple of rumors floating around out there that it could be a partially torn ligament.

I'm thinking about the Dodgers starting pitching too though. Our bullpen has to get a lot better before the playoffs imo

As a Lakers fan getting there means nothing. I was at Miami when we won the 2001 National championship title and got screwed out of the title game in 2000 and getting cheated in 2002 title game. My happiness doesn't revolve around if my team win or loses. But I like for them to contend for titles. But that's my opinion though

Folks, I understand that tensions can get high. Let's just be realistic here.

During this series, the bullpen allowed 10 runs in nine innings plus four inherited runners. Yes, that's 14 total runs in nine innings, 10 of which were totally their fault.

When the starters or the bullpen get shredded like that, it bears discussion.

7 of which came in mop-up duty with the game already well out of hand. Yeah, I’d love more crisp outing out of everyone, but the guys who will be given meaningful outings in the postseason pitched well, minus one big *** mistake to Sano.

And I totally get that perspective. It all counts, though. Every one of those runs matters, mop-up duty or not. Something's seriously wrong with our bullpen right now. It has been for a while. Thankfully, we're scoring so much that it's not hurting us much.

I just watched my wife's Cardinals blow a lead to the Dodgers in the 9th. Then, I watched PTI talk about the Cubs' bullpen being a disaster. It might be time to re-evaluate this strategy of pulling starters so early. The cure might not be any better than the disease.
