  1. Where the shit is this umpire's strike zone? Yams threw a pitch that was 100% in the zone and called it a ball but his zone against us has been really wide. Called one a strike to Harold that was neck-height.


  2. Why do people keep discounting the fact he was out of the game for 15 or 16 months? And chances are he never faced pitching that was as good as he's facing now on a consistent basis. It's also very possible he finished his time playing baseball in Cuba injured - his final two stints there he played only 40 games.

    If he's still bad middle of next year, then I think we can throw the "bust" tag on him, but shoot it's gonna take time for him to make all these adjustments. And again ... thank goodness this team actually has a plan and is stockpiling talent rather than just saying "we got these two, we're good." The team being successful will not hinge solely on VVM.

    Hopefully he got an earful from the coaches after that baserunning play because it was pretty horrendous.

    Don would probably go, "well ... hey ... that wasn't so good ... yeah ... alright go get em next time."

    They're too busy calculating the metrics from the game to see if he actually did toss a gem or if our eyes deceived us.  I'm sure his BABPIPMADOO was terrible so the results were just luck.  LMAO Just fucking with everyone.

    Seriously, his stuff is great.  The fact that he can keep his velocity up in the high 90's late in the game is great.  Seems like his biggest problem is confidence. When they can get  him to be aggressive, he's almost unhittable.  I'm excited to see him continue to improve.  #SpareParts

    God dammit, Rydawg, how many times do I have to tell you, nobody gives a shit about BABPIPMADOO anymore, it's all about BALLSACK+% now. If you're going to insult us, at least get the right bullshit term!

    And I agree - he looked great last night from the first pitch to ... well, into the 8th at least - maybe a couple pitches could have been better in that inning but either way, he did very well and I want to see more of that from him. Just go after hitters and not try to be perfect.
