The Saguaros are 0-6 and the Reds look to be a major reason for the losses.
Ondrusek and Watson have been abysmal (Ondrusek had two decent innings today after two shellings earlier). Boxberger wasn't so good in his one outing and Cozart (.590 OPS) and Alonso (.631 OPS) are off to slow starts.
Heisey has been awesome (1.545 OPS) and Leake had an ok outing.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
I looked at team ERA and team BA before last night's game and the Saguaros were deep in the basement in both categories. Every team except one had an ERA over 5 and most teams had very good team BAs with 4 of the 6 teams over .290. The Saguaros were batting .228 as a team. The Reds hitters are batting a collective .298. (Heisey is bringing up the avg of a poor Cozart and Alonso)
Jason Grey had some nice things to say about Boxberger's first outings. ESPN Insider content, but as a summary he said that he was 91-93, touching 94 in his first game and 94-96 touching 98 in outing 2. Also that some scouts believe he profiles as a closer.
94-96 touching 98, that's Bailey territory
