Schedule is pretty tough from here to the ASB. If they can make it through April above .500, that'd be great considering how banged up the rotation has been. Dickerson should be back early June, I think.

I can't believe they sent Keller back to AAA. After his first inning (debut) he pitched very well. And now Lyles looks to have tweaked something. Unreal.

Good series - after the first game - with the Braves.

They're just hanging on right now. The rotation is still a mess and they have 2 reliable relievers. They're starting Rookie Davis tomorrow, who has a an ERA over 8 as a starter. His best game has been 5IP, 0 ER, and that's probably the absolute best that can be hope for. Given they'll be in Milwaukee, I'm not betting on it.

The offense will have to carry them this weekend, no doubt about it. After Davis, Lyles goes on Saturday, and then Brault to finish on Sunday. Why they aren't giving Keller another start here is mindboggling to me given he looked fine after the first inning of his debut.

Thankfully, the offense has been scoring quite a bit lately. Only 2 or 3 guys aren't hitting above .300 the past couple weeks.

Just a really unfortunate season with injuries. It's been completely derailed.

Braves are the hottest team in baseball right now, fwiw.

Williams may be back as early as next week. I understand the regular catcher is out, too, which does not help. Diaz, I understand, has done a good job filling in.

Diaz is better than Cervelli so that injury kind of works itself out.

The real problem is the pitching staff. Taillon, Williams, and Lyles are all out. The two remaining starters, Archer and Musgrove, have been pretty bad for the most part. They've brought up Keller, but he's having some growing pains to say the least. And the bullpen has been a complete disaster. They've been hanging on with three reliable relievers and a bunch of bums who can't make it through an inning without surrendering runs.

It's really been unfortunate because the offense has been scoring quite a bit. Even with average pitching they'd be over .500.

Yep. Bucs have the opposite problem as the Reds - though the Reds hitting seems to be coming around. Maybe things will improve with Williams and Lyle returning - as long as they can pitch sufficient innings to keep from wearing out the the good relievers you mentioned.

Always thought teams carried too many relievers (pretty much guaranteeing some duds), but with sabermetrics being what they are today I guess they might even consider adding more relievers. As I type that I recall an announcer very recently suggesting just that. Good grief. Pretty soon everyone will be pitching 1/3 of an inning!
