I'm so sick of seeing him in press conferences blaming bullpen losses on lack of offense. Here goes another game. Franklin, who's an overall good setup man, is a terrible closer and gives up too many HRs when the game is tight.
I'd be knocking around the pitching staff (including almighty Dave Duncan) for their inability to turn this problem around.
Blame the starters for not going deep enough. Blame Izzy for not getting his head straight. But how dare anyone blame the offense when the bullpen has the most blown saves in the NL, and can't ever hold a 1 run lead for longer than 2 or 3 innings.
