Nationals vs Diamondbacks, Game 3
« Topic Start: April 17, 2021, 10:52:22 AM »
Diamondbacks vs.  Nationals
1:05 PM
58 degrees F, winds 9 MPH WNW
Luke Weaver (R) (1-0 2.13 ERA) vs. Erick Fedde (R) (0-1 8.53 ERA)

Diamondbacks
Nationals
1. Tim Locastro (R) CF
1. Trea Turner (R) SS
2. Kole Calhoun (L) RF
2. Juan Soto (L) RF
3. Josh VanMeter (L) 2B
3. Josh Bell (S) 1B
4. David Peralta (L) LF
4. Kyle Schwarber (L) LF
5. Pavin Smith (L) 1B
5. Starlin Castro (R) 3B
6. Eduardo Escobar (S) 3B
6. Andrew Stevenson (L) CF
7. Nick Ahmed (R) SS
7. Yan Gomes (R) C
8. Stephen Vogt (L) C
8. Jordy Mercer (R) 2B
9. Luke Weaver (R) P
9. Erick Fedde (R) P

Notes -  Stevenson getting the start in CF vs. RHP.  I think this is Harrison's first day off since coming off COVID  DL.  Bell gets the start against a righty.  Weaver has pitched well in terms of results, but has given up 3 HRs.  Fedde's had a huge improvement his last start with Gomes catching (2 walks, 2 hits over 4.2 innings).  Wind will be left to right. 

No D-back has more than 5 PAs vs. Fedde. Asdrubel did take him deep.  Against Weaver, several have faced him 8 or more times, with Schwarber (11 PAs, .989 OPS, 4 for 9 with 2 walks) and Mercer (8 PAs, 1.000 OPS) having the most success, and Bell being meh (17 PAs, .732 OPS).  In limited PAs, Turner (2 for 3) and Castro (2 for 3, 1 HR) have done well.

I figured I'd grab another Fedde start.  If we win, I'll grab another.  This kind of backfired on VaRK when I left him the Strasburg start, but I went in figuring the Fedde start was the chancier one.

Poor Robles off to such a bad start someone dropped him in my fantasy league after spending an early 10th rounder on him.

Fedde is looking awesome. Confident, aggressive, pounding the zone.

You wonder what Hickey or somebody said to him after his first start this year.  He's also  throwing hard.

how has this ump's strike zone looked?  I was eating lunch for most of the 1st, but it seems 10x better than last night.

Sure looked like it, and C&D say he did.

Good to catch him, especially given the next pitch...

Time for the black night gif.

Calhoun does that every now and then.

Looked like Stevenson was concentrating on waving off the other fielders, and then realized he should concentrate on catching the ball this time.

Well, Fedde survived that with just one run on the solo, so that's OK.  got to get some runs now.

I was going to put in the notes that Vogt is more of a bat-first catcher with a sub par arm, but his defense the past couple years has been spot on average
