Bucco bullpen gives up runs in 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th innings.

This bullpen has been a complete joke and needs to make changes immediately

Blame the 'pen for a number of runs, but not those last two.

Geesh.

Cubs have a had quite a bit of luck thus far, but Melancon losing his velocity is a legitimate issue.

Having a bad inning is one thing, but to give up like 4/5 hits in one inning without getting a out is unbelievable... and he's done it twice in one week.

Who the heck is going to replace melancon? Watson has struggled this year. Caminero? Please for the love of god call up Holdzkom

Is Tim Neverette on drugs? He just said the bullpen has been really solid until tonight. Am I missing something?

I've got visions of 2014 Jason Grilli dancing in my head.

I'm betting we see a DL stint for Melancon. Rest and a rehab visit to Indy. 8th and 9th innings to Caminero and Watson.

Hurdle sits there with his thumb up his ass. Melancon can't find the plate! Nobody in the bullpen warming up. This is why I'm not a huge fan of hurdle as a manager. Sometimes he's just clueless!

I know it's early, but this loss will be one of the worst all year.
