Hobgood's Start Tonight in Salisbury

Recommended Posts

I'm impressed by this start. The numbers are great. The velocity is pretty conistent from what we've heard along the way. I'm sure most of us are hoping that the 87-91 changes to 90-94 at some point but I can certainly enjoy these kind of results for now.

You are worrying too much about velocity. If you watched last nite's game the Seattle starter was blowing 87MPH fastballs by Markakis and Jones like they were 107. How was this possible? Because he was changing speeds and hitting his spots - in other words, location, location, location. (97 MPH down the middle of the plate is worthless in the major leagues).

Hobgood's best day yet in pro ball:

7 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 6 K, 0 R

Struck out the side in the 4th

Struck out Kyle Skipworth twice (0-4)

How did the breaking stuff look?

His family back on the west coast has been listening to the games on the internet and it's great to see Matt doing well.

It sounded like it was a great game!

Go Matt and go 'Birds!:2yay-thumb:

    • Did you see Bauer did a tomahawk chop when he left the game? Such an edgelord.
    • Reds imploding in 9th of another 1-0 game; Ozuna beat Day 2 Raisel to make it 3-0 (and ruin the drama of would Braves really use Melancon, 15th on the team in K-BB%, in a 1-run game); now Suarez has dropped a pop up to let Albies get on with a second chance. While I'm generally always rooting for a deciding game, Nick and O'Day are enough for me to be content to get to see them chase that One Shining Moment another week. Will the Reds opening offer to FA Bauer include a stake in franchise ownership?

    • Yea, no matter how the rest turn out, barring of course some kid's whose name I don't know turning into an all-star catcher, AR bombing will still be a big blow. Even if we end up with a playoff team, losing out on an MVP candidate at catcher is still going to hurt.

    • These threads are about the strengths of the organization as a whole at the various positions, not the current strength of the major league team.   I agree grades should not be “completely” based on players in the minors, especially ones who haven’t played an official game above low A.    But the guy was considered to be the easiest 1:1 choice since Harper.    That’s not nothing.
