Sucks, but lets not forget this game was started by Wacha on short rest against the guy who used to be Madison Bumgarner.

Would’ve been ok with it if not for the 3-run error / ump block / Wong fart whatever you want to call it.

That there is a crushing loss.

Lots of reasons for this one but it is yet another game they lost where the Wacha spot in the rotation came up that they shoulda filled months ago

Eventually he'll swing over the top of another slider.

7 Sliders
Yeah, that one could've gone 20, and Smith wasn't throwing a fastball. Martinez had made the adjustment during the plate appearance, but I guess the thinking was that Smith's slider would stay low enough that it wouldn't be hit for an XBH.
