The dreaded CBC. Josh Kinney could get some save chances as well. This is a complete cluster f--k and we probably should stay clear of it. LaRussa isn't helping Motte's confidence by not letting him sink or swim tonight.
Motte is probably headed for long relief or even AAA. His confidence is kinda beside the point.
So what he blew a save the other day. Was he really given a chance to close? You would think his spring stats would carry more weight that one blown save and 2 hits.
He fell apart in his first game. They didn't feel confident enough in him to bring him in to save Carp's game. And then they bring him in to face the weakest part of Houston's lineup, and they have their way with him.
Spring stats don't count for anything.
