One of these years the Jays will realize they need a real Ace, and real bullpen because just as I said when the season started, this pitching is fucking awful

I don't care until July.....MLB season is too long. Games/Standings right now mean so little that I can't bring myself to care.

I said this during pre-season, and was told I was wrong lol. Theyre doing better than I even thought they would still, thanks to Travis and Pillar stepping up. Sadly they don't have dick all for pitching, same story every year.

This teams pitching is awful. And they don't even have an ace in the starting staff. Brutal

The "Ace" of our staff is doing the worst (Dickey)

We have no true ace, that's the thing. Will any of our starting pitchers win 17+ games? There is not one pitcher in the starting staff that can halt a losing streak on his own, a guy that is almost always a garanteed win. You don't know what you're getting from any one of them on any given night.

Even worse you don't even know what you'll get each inning. Osuna has been good though, I'll credit him at least.

pitching is trash this year, we shouldn't be too surprised though

this team needs a true ace and the likelihood at getting one is pretty low it seems

We gave up most of our assets back in the Miami deal and the Dickey deal, a lot of those players should have been kept compared to we got out of it. Oh well thats hindsight now anyway.

Buehrle is a 'you always know what you're going to get' kinda guy. He's no ace, but he's solid and consistent as hell. Dickey has pretty much the same stats but is going to give up either no runs or 7, with no indication of which until the first homer. Both are pretty good starters tho.

But you are right to say we have no ace. Not even close.

Say what you want, Buerhle I'll give some credit to, but Dickey is not a pretty good started by any stretch.

That hit by Martin to get back in front in the 6th after blowing another lead was as clutch as they come. The team psyche needed it so badly. I wouldn't be surprised to see them reel off a few wins in a row.... and point back to that moment as what started it.

We do have an ace, he's out for the season. And another potential ace in Hoffman.

In other words, we don't have an ace.

Both of those guys you mentioned are 4th or 5th starters on most teams, probably wouldn't make the rotation on really good teams, so they arenot really good starters

that's why i said pretty good starters.

i love buehrle. he's so consistent. and both of those guys chew up lots of innings, which we desperately need since our pen blows. but yeah, they are not 'really good'. they are the kinds of guys you need on your team, but not studs.
