For a young guy on his first MLB broadcast, Geoff Arnold was essentially flawless. It was actually super impressive. He seems to know a ton, he threw McDonald appropriate questions, and his player interviews were SHORT and SNAPPY thank GOD. The PBP was basically perfect the entire game.
Dude's a pro with a good voice and he'll have a long career. It's cool to get younger guys like him and Brown in here mixed with some of the veterans.
Great article. Hoping he lets it rip pretty soon and cracks the team out of camp, but I'd give it less than 50/50 odds right now. I don't think he's going to magically learn to be patient in AAA this year, though, so let's just get him up here and see what we have.
Phillips a much needed improvement in his second appearance. Dude has very poor command, though.
Handhold a second scoreless appearance. He looks decent.
Armstrong a second strong appearance, flashing some of his new pitches. I saw a decent curve and some cutters.
Wojo looked very strong despite the home run. Had the look of a legitimate ML starter. Fastball was live at the top of the zone, I spotted one nasty breaking ball. I think he's going to be a workhorse this year. Some guys figure it out late. Reminds me a bit of Miguel Gonzalez.
Zimmermann! Decent! I like the 93mph fastball, though I'm less sold on the breaking stuff I saw in that appearance.
