One of those time you wish they had struck out.

Just like Holaday in the 9th last night.

Holaday should never have a bat in his hand in the 9th inning if the outcome of the game is in any way in doubt.

SEAN MICHAEL ARMSTRONG

 

Entered the game with a runner on 3rd base, and only 1 out ........ he stranded that runner by striking out Berti, and getting Cervelli to line out.

He pitched an additional inning, getting all 3 batters that he faced.

5 Up, 5 Down.

21 Pitches )(14 )Strikes,)7 )Balls.)

Trade that man!

    • I thought he looked a lot better than his first outing. He threw some good sliders. I like that he’s not afraid to throw his change up. He was better at locating it in this outing, but it doesn’t appear to be a great pitch to me judging by the hitters reaction to it. I think if he locates it well, it’ll be fine, but he can’t get away with even occasional poor location of it like someone like John Means can because I don’t think his change up is deceptive enough. He was better with his fastball location as well, but the velocity was only 89-91. I was surprised by that since I know he improved his velocity last year and from what I remember he was touching 96 MPH in spring training.    Overall, I was encouraged by what I saw last night. Hopefully, his velocity will be a little better if he gets in another game this year.
    • First Hobgood and now Harvey. We are no longer allowed to draft any pitcher, starting with the letter "H" LOL  
    • Who's this "we," homie?   I agree, it's wise not to speculate on what he's done or not done in the offseasons.  But even there isn't a full season next year and they don't have to pay him the full amount, it's still extremely hard to justify him being on the roster.  I'm sure it's hard to put an actual dollar value on at bats and playing time for younger players that need it to develop, but that's essentially what they'd be doing if they kept Davis on the roster for any reason for any length of time. Except it doesn't have to be that way.  They're spending the money no matter what (I'm assuming they'll have a full season with no fans or limited fans next year) so it's high time that they cut him and let more deserving players have a spot, 162 games or not.
    • Yep.   We will never really know exactly how much work Davis put in compared to what other players do.    So, I choose not to speculate about it.   It’s well past the point where we can hope for some Hail Mary offseason turnaround, the guy is far below a replacement level player, and now we have a lot of guys who need to be in the majors taking the at bats that Davis might take.    The only justification for keeping him is the possibility that a full season won’t be played and we won’t have to pay him the full amount he’s owed.    That’s a complex decision that I can’t comment on very intelligently.    
    • Why not Bannon? He should be up by now anyway.
    • This is where I'm at. My first wish is for Trey to live and love and happy life that is cancer free. Obviously second to this is his return to his previous form as a baseball player, but there is an inherent risk that won't happen. AS Moose pointed out, many athletes have returned to form and we can hope and pray that he does, but more importantly, that Trey will be well long term.
