    Greg Holland has 10 strikeouts with just 1 hit and 2 walks in 6 shutout innings this season.

    He's also 3-for-3 in save opportunities

    Holland has looked great so far. I don’t have the feeling of absolutely dread when he comes in like I did with Rodney or Boxberger. I hope he keeps it up!!

    Oh, how Archie does not belong in the photo at the upper right of the
    ASFN D-backs board with the Big Unit, Gonzo and Goldy.

    If we had a Public Relations rookie of the year, it would have been Archie.

    But that's about it for the one-pitch pony, who is now come-down player
    of the year.

    I don't like to disparage a D-backs player, but including him with legends
    because of his beard, or public speaking skills, was an act of desperation.

    Speaking of bullpen woes, Zack Godley has once again been removed from the starting rotation
    and will pitch long relief out of the bullpen. He, with the worst ERA in the league -- 7.90.

    That equates to 6 earned runs every 7 innings pitched this season. Most of them as a starter.

    Does anyone know if he is eligible to be sent to the Minors or put on waivers?

    Last year, the D-backs' bullpen posted a 3.56 ERA. This year, it's 4.27, not counting today's game. It's a big reason the D-backs are just 9-12 in one-run games.

    How are Mike Fetters and Mike Butcher still employed?

    At least they didn't pitch Godley in the loss to Colorado in Game 1.

    Chafin is fine, if he is limited to starting innings fresh, rather than coming in with runners on base.

    Hirano is also fine, if he can fall back into a routine and have a steady, regular role, like he had in Japan (and like he had to start last season, when he was lights out...until Torey started tinkering again).

    Archie is mentally gone and either needs to be fixed in the minors or else cut.

    A lot of this falls on poor coaching and poor game management.

    What do you mean by Archie being mentally gone?

    He basically looks like Mark Wohlers or Rick Ankiel out there. All control and confidence is gone, so all he can do to come close to throwing strikes is groove straight fastballs that get clobbered. Otherwise, the ball is all over the place like Wild Thing Vaughn. It's pretty clear Archie's issues are psychological.

    That's a shame. He was basically Andrew Miller 2 years ago. Some of the best setup work I had ever seen. I hope he can get straightened out.
