I like 4/5 of our rotation.  It'd be nice if we had a suitable replacement for Chico.

Exactly my point earlier.  He just makes guesswork out of every pitch.  In the rare event that he actually does display a modicum of pitch recognition in a count, he usually negates that work by completely misjudging pitches later in the count.

He guesses WAY too much for a ML player. Someone (LENNY!!) needs to teach him how to wait back and foul balls off that are close. That helps timing and contact. It's not like he could never hit.

I agree. They have actually been solid except for Chico.

great pitch.  We need to knock Glavine out of the game right here.

Redding should be able to give us one more inning.

It's so great having a baseball team in a town where two suit and ties could signify some incredibly devious dealings going on.

Yep. Flopsy, Guz and Zim need to give him his chance to step off the mound.

I don't know about awesome but he's been solid as has Perez. And they have done it with different catchers behind the plate.

Yeah, you're right. I just say "awesome" because he gives us a chance to win in most of his games. Going into the season, I was expecting a lot of high scoring games. Anytime a pitcher only gives up 3 or 4 runs, I'm happy. Lower than that and I think it's awesome. :lol:

Good point. 6 innings and only 1 run is better than solid.

OT: Cory VanAllen pitches 7 shutout innings of 1 hit ball! His ERA is now 0.66. Potomac wins 1-0

I love Berg when he's "on", but despise him with the fire of 1000 suns when he's not.  I can't stand pitchers with no control.
