4/8 Game Thread: Still Trying to Get Above .500

on .

After beating Johan Santana and the Mets convincingly, the Braves managed to muster 3 hits in Coors field against Aaron Cook and the Colorado Rockies. Yes, they're the reining NL champs, but they also play in one of the more extreme hitter's parks in baseball (it STILL is, despite the humidor and despite what lazy TV announcers tell you). Still, over the course of a 162 game season, you're going to get 3-hit now and again. And we're still 3rd in the major leagues in scoring, third only to the White Sox and Pirates. The problem, ahem, is elsewhere. Specifically, it's the bullpen, where, as our radio guys pointed out last night, this fun trend has appeared:
  IP ER H HR ERA WHIP
Peter Moylan 4 2/3 1 5 1 1.93 1.30
Will Ohman 3 2/3 0 3 0 0 0.80
Rafael Soriano 4 1 2 0 2.25 1.30
  12 1/3 2 10 1 1.46 1.10
Chris Resop 2 2 2 0 9.00 2.50
Blaine Boyer 5 2/3 5 4 2 7.94 0.90
Manny Acosta 3 4 3 2 12.00 1.70
Royce Ring 2 2 2 0 9.00 1.00
  12 2/3 13 11 4 9.24 1.30
So, if you thought the bullpen was the problem, you're half right -- it's half of the bullpen that's all of the problem! Alright, boys. Let's get 'em tonight.
