Odalis Perez goes 7 innings gives up 2 runs and leaves with a 7-2 lead, seems safe right? HELL NO! Manager decides it's Lima time and then all hell breaks loose, 5 runs in the inning. 5 Walks 3 hits including 3 walks with the bases loaded in a row and bam there's goes my win. And all of this happened after the first 2 guys were retired in the inning. I have a pitching staff of Beckett, Vazquez, Oswalt, Santana, Redman and Perez and have a grand total of 12 wins. Unbelievable. Just had to get this off my chest, can't remember when I've been this pissed, anybody else feel my pain? I mean come on I think I have a very good pitching staff and I'm dead last in wins, somebody else has to know what that's like.

With Martin, Mota, and Gagne in that bullpen, that's a horrible decision by the manager.

Damn, just checked, and 2 of the walks were by Martin :-o

He had only thrown like 90 pitches as well which makes the decision by the manager even harder to fathom. I guess he was pinch hit for in the 8th which is also IMO done too often in the NL and for mostly no return.

Perez threw 91 pitches so he could have gone another inning if needed. Bad manager's decision in my opinion.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
