Re: Tony Cingrani Thread
In watching Cingrani so far, he's been burned by strong righty power hitters like Soriano and Braun. I think with some coaching, Cingrani can avoid this issue and be more effective.
I thought Dusty pulled him Friday because the Brewers are a heavily RHH team. Dusty doesn't like to use lefties against such lineups. Sean Marshall generally sits against them. Dusty may not have liked Cingrani against Mil from the outset.
Sure, I'd like to see more dependence on secondary pitches, but I think Cingrani can be effective with modest changes and some smarter pitching against big righty hitters.
Seems like he will go down to AAA, but I wouldn't be upset if he stays. He's a certain type pitcher, he's the anti-Greg Maddox, but he has good stuff and seems pretty close to ready for prime time.
