Two Really Depressing Losses

The Hype Machine Finally Arrives: Mariners 3, Angels 0

Felix Hernandez, who's been lauded as the second coming of <insert Hall of Fame pitcher here> really, finally looked the part tonight, blanking the Angels on four hits in a thoroughly depressing game that has the scent of what the Halos will face in the upcoming postseason, assuming they make it that far. Scott Kazmir was excellent two through the end of his outing (6.1 IP), with a very rough first in which he loaded the bases on a pair of singles and a hit batter, and then struck out the side to escape the self-made jam. Mike Napoli provided the throwing error in the seventh that allowed Brewers castoff Bill Hall to score a run on top of driving home the winning run earlier in the frame; and later, Brian Fuentes gave up a run on a bases-loaded walk. Massive fail all the way around.

And, oh yeah, the Rangers beat the Jays 6-4 to cut the Halos' division lead to 3.5 games.

More Billingsley Scuffling: Diamondbacks 4, Dodgers 1

If the Dodgers are serious about a postseason run that goes past the first round, they'll need to either find another Cubs team willing and able to roll over, or else figure out what the hell's wrong with Chad Billingsley, who's been not quite right on his last three straight starts. That is all.

Not worried about Bills, he was unlucky in the 5th, let's look at the 13 straight batters retired as the real Bills.
Rob, I was reading your link policy, and I think my blog would qualify. When you have time, I was wondering if you could take a look and see if I meet the requirements to get linked in the sidebar. I would have e-mailed you but this seemed like a quicker and better route.
One quality start in his last three, and all of them losses. The L's I can handle, the quality start problem, not so much.

Thanks Rob.

And yeah, he needs to be more consistent, but this one particular start does not make me worry. And really, as long as he's healthy going into the playoffs, I don't worry about him. The offense makes me worry a hell of a lot more.
