We just haven't looked good for the last 3 games. Seems like they are lethargic or have a hangover from the Reds series.
I'm actually the one who posted the Martinez pitch #
I'll give you the hangover for the Dillon Gee game, but they just faced Matt Harvey and Fernandez. Those guys are really damned good. Maybe they are hungover, but good pitchers who are on can carve up any lineup.
You also have to consider that Miller, Wacha, Lyons, Martinez, et. al. aren't used to throwing 200 innings. Hell, they'll cap Wacha somewhere around 150. Although Westbrook is nowhere near our most talented pitcher, we desperately need those innings
