70% catch probability on the final hit for Eaton, who played it wrong and it went over his head. Good job giving up Giolito for that dude, Nats.
You are spot on based on the replays I saw. Eaton appeared to simply give up on the ball but the likely answer is that he misread the ball off the bat.70% catch probability on the final hit for Eaton, who played it wrong and it went over his head. Good job giving up Giolito for that dude, Nats.
Why? What is so offensive about the "opener" to you?Both the Yankees and Blue Jays used openers today. This abomination is going to be a permanent fixture isn’t it?
I think we need a rule that says the starting pitcher cannot be removed until he pitches at least 3 innings. 60 pitches, or 3 runs, barring injury, which, if invoked, would necessitate a minimum 10 day IL stint
That last HR was a bomb. 452 feet and an exit velo of 107.4 MPH.Reds rookie Aristides Aquino just came up a week or two ago, already has an amazing nickname (The Punisher!) and has 7 HRs in his first 27 ABs, including 3 in the first 4 innings tonight against the Cubs.
Didn’t your car stealing friend take them all?The NL contenders bullpens all seem so so bad, ATL had to use Jerry Freaking Blevins to close last night, CHC gave up 6 runs in the 9th tonight while getting 1 out (Strop and then the just picked up Holland), etc, etc. Do any NL contenders have multiple reliable back-end guys?
