I'd just like to see a starter keep us in the game long enough to give the offense a chance to peck away at a few runs. That was the recipe last year. So far this year, the starters have made visions of Jimmy Haynes and Jimmy Anderson dance in my head and put too much pressure on the offense to score 6-10 runs to win a game.

So I'm currently watching "The 20 Greatest Games" on MLB Network and the 03 NLCS Game 6 is on. The downfall of Mark Prior. The superb management choices of Dusty Baker. The infamous Bartman. Ah, good times.

Seventh consecutive home game in which the visitors have scored in the first inning, and the 11th time in 15 home games this season.

No...not really. But when you struggle like he has, you'd think he'd get mad. It just doesn't look like it phases him. It's not a big deal, but I'd hope he's at least INTO the game. Just hard to tell with the way he is.

Wow. That was the first hit off of Johnson in the first inning all year. 1 for 48 now against him. He's the anti-Edinson in the first.

HEY! Single to right-center for Brandon. Nice hit and run. Votto to third.

_Sir_Charles_
04-30-2011, 07:36 PM
Gomes K's to end the inning. It looked like Brandon was really bothering Johnson there. Lots of throws over. I like that. Get in his head Brandon. Anything to keep him out of a rhythm.

1-0 Florida after 1 full.

Bailey has gone 6 innings so far in Louisville on 85 pitches, 5 hits, 1 ER so far. He still looked relaxed in the 6th and hopefully they'll let him get up into the 90's (pitches) before they pull him. He is on 5 days rest today too.

I agree in regards to Wood. As for Volquez...batters can't hit him. I'm not going to argue that AT ALL. His stuff is great. But he can't locate it. He is incapable of going even remotely deep in a game until he can. I like to see close to a 2-1 ratio in strikes to balls from my starters. He's almost always on the opposite side of 50/50. Tonight, thus far...20 strikes, 24 balls. 1 hit. But 4 walks. Those count as baserunners too. But it's the pitch count and flirting with danger that's the problem. Not to mention the additional strain on the bullpen.

Janish! Another double! I thought that was gone for sure.

What is that, 3 doubles in the last 2 or 3 games now? He's been swinging VERY well the last few games. Plus he's gotten robbed 2 or 3 times on some scorched liners right at infielders.

That was a nice play for him, but that's the very end of his range toward third. IMO Janish has quicker feet and would have had that standing up. Still a very nice play especially if you consider the bat that guy carries. :eek:

Single to left for Infante. He's got both Marlins' hits.

WebScorpion
04-30-2011, 08:02 PM
Homer was pulled after 91 pitches in Louisville. Another good outing: 6.1 IP, 5 hits, 1 ER, 2 BBs, 6 Ks. Not sure how good the Norfolk offense is, but he looked very relaxed and was throwing first pitch strikes...I have no idea how his velocity is since neither Gameday or MiLB.TV have pitch FX, but he appears to be at his normal velocity. I think pulling him after 91 is treating him with kid gloves, but really I'm hoping to have these guys (Bailey & Cueto) at their best in the SECOND half of the season so I won't complain. :clap:

_Sir_Charles_
04-30-2011, 08:03 PM
Looking MUCH better this inning thus far. He's in the zone consistently now.

FWIW Welsh always acted as if Dunn wasn't all that bad out there either.Chris was a pitcher so maybe he sees Gomes lunging at ball to catch them at the last second and just automatically thinks they're great catches.Dunn usually couldn't even do that.I'm not sure what Thoms excuse is.

Johnson soft tapper back to Ondrusek. Man on 2nd, 2 out. Phillips clownin' out at second with Bonifacio. Bray in, high socks and all.

Side note: Some clown I work with overheard myself and a colleague of mine discussing our pitching situation, namely bullpen. Out of nowhere, this guy goes, "they need to send Masset back down to AAA, he's a clown." After a period of perplexed looks and inappropriate disguised gestures, we follow up and ask who he likes...

"I like Bray, his socks are cool..."

Runner going on the pitch. GO to BP, who gets the batter at 1B. 1 down with a runner in scoring position.

He's been pretty much a shutdown pitcher so far this year.

Not really....his peripherals suggest otherwise. He more and more relies upon others and sequence. That's not shutdown.

Even the .202 hitting version of Hanley?

I agree. Let's hope he can stay sharp though with his limited save opportunities so far this year. His opportunities should average out, but you would hate to see him hit a funk when they do.

Why not? Look at his numbers so far this season. Pretty dismal. He's been struggling.

Ground out to Janish. 3-3 heading to the ninth. Stubbs, Bruce & Votto all set to score.

Slightly closer to shutdown than meltdown this year.

This is one instance where you hope you don't get 10% more for free....
