It’s getting harder and harder for me to come to the D backs threads. They were doing so well and now seem to have completely fallen apart. I hope they can turn it around, and quickly.

I get the most stressed with us having a 1 run lead going into the ninth inning.

There's a reason why you have #1 and #2 starters - they SHOULD pitch back to back. Instead of trying to win every series, Torey is now saying we'll try to win a game in each series. That's a loser mentality and part of the reason why the DBacks have fallen off the cliff since the ASB...

I took away, after the number of games we won in the first half, that Torrey is trying to win just enough games to get us into the playoffs. Seems like he's trying to eke out wins however he can. The problem for Torrey, is how does he do that with the resources he has. Not knowing if your bull pen can close out games, it makes everyone press. Batters start trying to put a big number on the board, and home run swings start coming out. The GM is hurting us more right now than the manager, imho.

How does Torrey allow 3 straight left handed batters, without pinch hitting for any of them? So dumb. At least PH for Canzone as DH, to see if someone can get on base.

Because he doesn't understand any actual metrics.

Alek Thomas now has a .786 OPS against righties and is still batting 8th.

It's just obtuse at this point
