We have seen the enemy and it is.....our bullpen

I had actually thought about starting this with a bit of a rant over Mills trying the squeeze last night but; I think we all have well chronicled his foolishness so we should move past that now.

Yet again the Astros snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with the bullpen's latest implosion. It is understandable though. These are the best pitchers the Astros have who are currently "MLB ready". And that my friends....is frightening. We should not expect a much different result next year than what we are seeing today. but we should expect some improvement. We have seen short "spurts" of solid pitching from our bullpen but unfortunately we have seen longer periods of absolute ineptness. As we cast a gaze over the young bullpen pitchers do we see any hope on the horizon? It very hard to tell.

Currently; mainly to draw interest from younger fans,  I would suggest when there's a call to the bullpen that the relief squad all get into a small car, drive to mound, get out, run around the mound until the pitcher called runs up the hill, get back into the car and drive back to the bullpen. At least we would have some form of entertainment prior to the inevitable heartbreak to come.
