Why not flip roles for Cease and Kopech?

Cease is currently our least dependable starter.

I think Bummers struggles are all babip related. A 31% k rate + 73% GB rate are a ridiculously impressive combination. He's fine.

That and he has inconsistent command this year.

I agree but you can get away with spotty command if you're a strikeout and GB monster.

Fuck it. Bring Eloy back Friday to pinch hit two games and play LF once. Team needs a boost this weekend.

Unacceptable performance. 

We've wasted two great starting pitching performances against a bad team with inconsistent at best hitting and brutal relief. 

Unacceptable. 

With the way the starters have pitched this series, anything less than a 4 game sweep is a waste, but splitting is beyond atrocious.

Cease cant come out if the pen.  No control.

Don't most relievers start out as SPs with no control or bad command?

Duffey's been hit hard, Yoan just hit it right at someone.

Well Kopech should be one of the 3 or 4.  Cease & Kuechel can be put in the bullpen.

Correct. Rodon and Lynn are absolute locks. what we have seen from Giolito lately puts him in there...I do not trust Keuchel at all right now. and NO WAY are they going 3 man rotation in a 7 game series. Kopech should be the 4th starter for the simple fact that if they use him as a 1 and 2 inning guy the rest of the year....he may not be ready for a full workload in 2022. that would be an absolute waste of his potential and service time.

I might be the only person hoping Cleveland would win to help with being the 1 seed.

Agreed, if they get within 6 I would start looking at scores more often.

Yermin definitely was coming back to the big leagues if he stayed in shape and kept his head on shoulders. Doesn’t appear he was able to do the latter. 

without any actual position?

I'm not so sure.

We definitely need some bullpen help because it was exposed in this game. However, good teams are going to have games like this.

Unacceptable. 

We are also hitting into too many double plays.  Abreu is leading the league in double plays hit.  Would like to see more hit and runs with Abreu at the plate and fast runners like TA, Engel and Moncada at first.

Neither cease or keuchel even pitched into the 6th.  Not great by either.
