I strongly suspect they are tanking for Carlos Rodon.

They don't have to tank, they're awful.

They are built to lose, that's the whole point.

Anibal yanked after 5 scoreless and 95 pitches. Settled down allowing just 2 H and 1 BB after walking 2 in the first. 5 Ks. Positive signs after an abysmal Spring. Would have loved the QS, but as long as they can hang onto that 2 - 0 lead I'm happy as a pig in crap.

I highly doubt they are playing worse players over better players just to lose or that they specifically avoided bringing better players to the team so that they could lose more.

I'm watching the game, Villarreal looks like one of those maximum effort delivery type of pitchers I hate. I doubt he gets many save opps.

Mauer, Willingham, Morneau. With 2 lefties in there you would think it's Coke time.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.
