Is Alex Cobb Elite?

Recommended Posts

We can't blame the lack of ST this  year:) It is early but wow, rough outing! 

From a scale of 1 to 10...confidence level Cobb will be above average?

SSS. :):)

I would not put too much faith in a bad outing. Would not be the first to get lit up in ST and be fine.

Wait and see if there are a few more more hitting the panic button.

This doesn't make a ton of sense... The impact of ST would be felt through his regular season starts.  The second half of last season was very very good.  ST is where you're supposed to bang off the cobwebs.  Would I prefer he looked great today?  Absolutely.  But the conclusion you appear to arrive at with the statement above doesn't appear to have much logical consistency to it.

I'll go with an 8 in my confidence that he will be above average.

I think he is doing a bit of a troll on us. :)

Yeah, he was hurt the first half and tried to pitch through it.

Ha! Def no panic. Our goal is to suck. But not him, we need to trade him. So we should be concerned. I am looking forward to the draft this year for once. I really like Elías.

I didn’t know there was a game on so soon, but generally I don’t have a problem with guys getting blasted in their first appearances. It’s better to do well than poorly, But I’m OK. Now, if his last appearances are also resulting in getting whammed, that will be a problem.

There’s no game thread?

I am not high on chance, because I doubt he can overcome his high strike out rate, and his defense is terrible. But man, if he keeps hitting this way, bring him north and make him DH.

Well the Orioles signed Cobb late, so maybe he wasn't in top condition yet.  Oh wait that was last year, maybe he is just on the downside of his career and the new Ubaldo.  🤷‍♂️

Let's just hope him getting a full ST will help get the cobbwebs out before the regular season. 🥁
