I know Kimbrel only gave up one run, but he had a strike/ball ratio of 2/3. He didn’t look good in Philadelphia either. Is there really no one with control in the minors that can take this kid’s place.
Rodrigo Lopez- Another pitcher I’ve never heard, whom the Braves made look like an ace.
Cox postgame: “Lopez was outstanding tonight. We had some bad breaks. Hit the ball on the nose but right at ‘em.” “Tommy pitched well. We just had some bad luck with some balls dropping in holes.”
Jesse Chavez is awful. The Rays definitely got the better end of that deal. Soriano has been shaky, but he is definitely better than Jesse Chavez. I guess Bobby thought 5-1 was insurmountable. That’s the only reason to explain Kimbrel and Chavez pitching. I’m pretty sure Moylan didn’t pitch last night.
Curt – the illustrious newspaper which i still habitually take since it was the only thing in English 20 years ago when I first came here…and now which we normally line our puppy’s pee area… is the Japan Times.
