"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
I don't get it, but right from the beginning of this game Arroyo's stuff has been considerably better than what he has had since the first game of the season. Obviosuly it could be easy to say that in hinsight, but that's the impression that I've gotten since the 2nd inning on. He's just had much better late action, that has normally been coming out flat.
I don't know how to evaluate from Arroyo from here on in, because he is so different from the average pitcher. I do know that he was absolute trash for awhile, but at the same time he has been awfully good right from the beginning tonight, and that is at least something to conisder. That's better than last week where I saw no reason to do anything other than DL him.
Encarnacion gets called out for swinging and he didn't even swing.
