Morning Poll: Who is the Most Worthless Reliever in Arizona Diamondbacks Bullpen?
Who ya gonna call?
The Arizona Diamondbacks got blown out 8-0 by the Florida Marlins yesterday. It's the ninth loss in 11 games for the 16-24 D-Backs, and aside from poor offensive production, the team's miserable bullpen owns much of the blame.
Yesterday, the bullpen gave up six runs in three innings in the loss, with reliever Saul Rivera giving up two homers in the sixth.
About a week ago, the D-Backs were blown out yet again, losing 13-3 to the Los Angeles Dodgers. As you may have guessed, the Dodgers best player in that contest was the D-backs bullpen.
D-backs reliever Juan Gutierrez can take much of the credit for blowing that one. Check it out here.
About two weeks before that miserable loss, the bullpen dropped the ball again when reliever Chad Qualls gave up a game-winning blast in the ninth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals.
With the worst ERA (6.08 at the moment) in the entire league, it's fair to say the Diamondbacks bullpen fucking sucks, but who should be the first, ahem, fireballer on the train out of Sandland?
