    I hope he can keep it up so we be comfortable with him starting if and when a starter has to miss a start.

    He struck out the first 7 and 13 of the first 15.

    That'll do pig, that'll do.

    Shouldn't this go in the Minor League Forum?

    He would have struck out all 18 if he had a second pitch.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Strikeouts are fascist.

    He's basically a LH version of Logan Ondrusek.

    According to ESPN, reports from the stadium had Cingrani touching 95 and 96.

    Another friend/ part-time bird scout went to the game and said his breaking ball (slider), while thrown infrequently, broke well and often. (In his estimation, one hanger all night.) Interestingly, according to the bird scout, Cingrani apparently played up in the zone almost all night. That made his slurve (scout's word, not mine) and change more effective. He insists that you can't stay up there as much as Cingrani did last night and be successful in the majors. He also said Cingrani is better, in his opinion, than Leake right now.

    PHP Code:
    He would have struck out all 18 if he had a second pitch
    Did you watch? He did have a second.....and a third pitch although used infrequently. He absolutely buckled a LHB with a great breaking slider for a K.

    A lot of people "skeptics" thought Cingrani would get lit up and struggle as he climbed the minors and it hasn't happened. "Oh, wait until he gets to the next level"..... I love the fact that Cingrani has proved those people wrong. He's a great prospect story.

    It was always "if he had a third pitch", not a second one. Last night, he had it and it wasn't the same third pitch that he used the previous two seasons.

    It wasn't the same, as in he's using a different pitch, or is wasn't the same, as in it was more effective?

    I'd also argue, as I believe I did last year when we had this discussion, that a cut fastball like Cingrani's is a third pitch. (And, because he can also cut it the other way, a fourth pitch.)

    He was obviously being sarcastic.
