Yeah, that was odd. He's battling. Hasn't settled in yet, but then again he's not getting the best from the umpire. A few that were called outside looked like strikes through my homer vision. But he's mixing his pitches. That's encouraging.
Just struck out Alex Gordon.
Just got out of a jam. Sit down rookie.
Yeah. I agree with you about the first pitch thing. He's getting down in counts, which makes what he's doing more impressive, battling back and all....but I would like to see him get ahead in the count. It probably has a lot too do with the scouting report out on him right now. Sit on the fastball, and don't swing at any of the breaking stuff. It will probably be like this for his first few starts.
