Just saw it on replay and MLB needs to investigate the Home Plate ump in this game. He has to have money on it. HORRIBLE call on a blown call at the plate then called a pitch almost in the dirt was called on Rolen as a strike
Complete sarcasm. Open up the thesaurus...Anything next to "barely a BP pitcher on any AL team" will fit. Bush comes up with a solid outting every four-five starts, so that demoting him would seem foolish. He's a tease, just like the entire Brewers' 2010 team.
That said, I'm riding this wagon for the long haul, win or lose. Still quite awhile before we are in Cubs territory.

With an ERA of 7.33 and 12 blown saves, the Diamondbacks’ bullpen has been a nightmare all season. A league-average bullpen would have allowed around 64 fewer runs, which would add 6 more games to the win column. This would have turned the 26-38 record to a respectable 32-32. Looking at the game-by-game breakdown, the bullpen performance appears even worse. There were 6 particularly bad blown saves, and 8 more games where the bullpen turned a tie game into a loss. 11 more times a close game was turned into a blowout. Combining all of this, I estimate the bullpen has already cost the team around 9 wins, so the Diamondbacks could have been 35-29 with an average bullpen.
