On this road trip the Rox have scored a whopping 13 runs. In the last two series, with the Giants and Padres, the Rox have scored 7 runs and allowed 8 but are 2-3. The gauntlet that is the West Coast. And to think we get to do this again in July with a trip to Arizona, LA, and San Diego and again in August with a trip to LA, Arizona, and San Diego.
Sad thing is our pitching staff is giving us the chance to win. If they start failing us, the Rox are in real serious trouble. Throw in the fact that we are getting on base, approximately 90 times over the 9 games it just goes to show you that something isn't work. Dave Krieger's column today was telling in its honesty. Either a consistent message isn't being sent or the players we think are good really aren't. Either way allowing a 16-23 lifetime pitcher go 8 strong on you with 8 strikeouts ought to tell you that someones message isn't reaching its audience!
