Another decent start
I said this for a while, but he had a nice run from 4/16 - 6/30 last year, too.  That's part of what's maddening about him.  He's seemed  close to putting it together several times.

I posted sometime last year that there seemed to be several stretches where it looked like he'd turned a corner, only to regress yet again. It is maddening.

For what it's worth, Davey did what many had been calling for him to do, and did not leave Corbin in too long (he was three batters into the third time through the order). And then our bullpen did what it does.

Grant Paulson notes:

Patrick Corbin's 2.37 ERA over his last 3 starts has some thinking he's turned a corner.

This is his best 3-start run since he posted a 0.86 ERA from June to July in 2019. Didn't have a run like this in '20 or '21. Just two three-start stretches at 2.37 or better in 2019.

Corbin stats 4-16-21 to 6-30-21

2.5 months of 4.01 ERA last year.

If he turned into a couple who could pitch 175 innings with an ERA on right side of 4.50, the contract would still be bad but it would be such a relief for the franchise to at least be able to him him in back of the rotation.

A bit worried this is an illusion, but it feels like there may for some reason be something there with Riley Adams.

Corbin is definitely one of the worst signings for this club in team history. By far. 140 million for some relief pitching in the World Series. That’s it.

And all of the 2019 season. That season got us into the playoffs

$140 million for one season is a bit much.

Given 2019, I'm not mad about the signing at all. I do hope the team gets good again soon, though.
