    Re: Andrew Abbott

    Any home run issue seems to be isolated to just these 20 innings in AAA. Hopefully it's just statistical noise (fingers crossed).
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

What you want is 6 quality innings. Maybe your own team can hit a home run or two.

    The HR could easily be a fluke. He may not change anything and they will normalize. That's why we need to wait and see what happens. I don't think he should change anything that has been successful based on 5 HR in 20 IP. Keep doing what he's doing. If the high HR rate continues, then it may be time to make an adjustment. Too soon to tell anything at this point.
    All my posts are my opinion - just like yours are. If I forget to state it and you're too dense to see the obvious, look here!

    Re: Andrew Abbott

    Abbott took the next step in his development in AAA today going 6 1/3 innings allowing 2 hits and 1 ER with 3 BB and 9 SO. Pitching deeper into games is the last step for his AAA development IMO. One or two more starts like this and I think it's time for the call up.

    Re: Andrew Abbott

    If Abbott keeps this up, is he a September call-up?

    I think he's the first guy up if there's a SP injury at least until Lodolo gets back. I thought he would replace Williamson relatively soon, but Williamson just pitched a heck of a game tonight vs the Brewers. Maybe if they trade Lively or Weaver we could see Abbott in early August. I think Abbott has a chance to be #3 out of our current group behind Greene and Lodolo.

    I have no problem moving somebody into a multi-inning role out of the bullpen. Lively, Weaver, Williamson.

    There are 1,400 innings to cover and relief innings are available every game.

    Would like to see Abbott relatively soon.

    For a long time I thought it was just the stache that drew me to Andrew. But now I know it’s the fact that the top of his jersey fits super loose, and the bottom fits super snug.

    He doesn’t have the Green or Lodolo gifts - but he is becoming a favorite.

    Re: Andrew Abbott

    He uses everything he's got on every pitch it seems. Nothing seems to get to him. The guys with the bigger arms all seem to be much more mentally fragile and go from dominant to gone in a few AB's. He give up a solo HR and is back in the saddle when the pitch clock is reset. He reminds me a little of Browning in that way.

    Guys who don't throw 98 have to learn how to pitch to even make it to the big leagues. Others are promoted ready or not.
