He had this to say about Gray to Morosi:

"“When he’s been good, he’s been really good. When he’s been bad, it’s been tough to watch,’ Bridich said. ‘We need him to step up. This is his third full season at this level. There are still lessons he’s learning. But he’s no longer a young kid in this league, at this level. He needs to step up, and we need to help him find a way to become more consistent.” “I’m not sure there’s a ton left for him — if anything — [to learn] at the Triple-A level. If at some point it becomes obvious he would need a mental breather, physical breather, or both, that would be an option. But the hurdles are here. He’s got to figure this out at this level. That’s just the way it is. It’s where he’s at in his career.”"

Should they be more consistent like they are capable of? Absolutely. Jon Gray looks like he isn’t confident in his pitching as after last night’s loss to the Phillies, he drops to 6-7 with a 5.68 ERA. Bryan Shaw still has not shown any signs of being able to consistently record outs.

Granted, the Rockies have suffered numerous injuries to players like DJ LeMahieu, Adam Ottavino, David Dahl, and Mike Dunn, among others, but that still doesn’t excuse the whole team being so inconsistent.
