I just tuned in to play by play at work. What hapened in the third inning? Did westbrook have a meltdown?

I didn't see it, but that is what it sounded like. He apparently just couldn't make the pitches he needed at the key pitch counts.

They say he has always been a notoriously slow starter in April, so hopefully he turns it around sooner rather than later. We need him to be much better than this.

Westbrook has looked better in hsi last few starts, it seems.

Best outing of the year by far for Jake. If he can continue to be rock solid, this rotation is really formidible, because I've got to believe Carp is eventually going to pitch better.

Both Carp and Westbrook were sharp their last outing. Difference was Carp got no help from the offense and Westbrook did!

Very true. Carp was very good on Friday.

This rotation has been pretty good except for Westbrook's first 5 starts or so.

They have been pretty good, considering most people were all worried about pitching after Waino went down!

I'm still MUCH more concerned about the bullpen than the starting rotation.

With a few exceptions, the bullpen is doing it's annual SUCK job!
