It's just the bottom of the third inning, 4:03 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2009.
Question: Will Yabuta (era=27.0) or Chen (era=5.54) still be with the team by 5 p.m.? Should they?
Yabuta just threw two-thirds of an inning and gave up five runs, five earned runs, on five hits.
Chen walked two, hit one and gave up two hits among the seven hitters he faced.
This is intolderable. Just plain intolerable. Help!
