Boy!! I bet we wish we had Hernandez now! Of course Showalter had his own nuggets and some of them(bullpen) turned out to be fools gold!! He seemed to find his niche and is pitching with a lot of confidence.

The red is the only concerned, but I can live with that because so far he's had nothing but good success.

Tons of flyballs too...That will catch up to him in all likelihood.

But, pitching in the NL is sure a nice place for him..or any pitcher.

Gotta give up nuggets to get nuggets. It's not anyone's fault except Reynolds's that he turned out to be fools gold.

Horrible night for DH...
Pitchers			IP	H	R	ER	BB	SO	HR	ERADaniel Hudson			 7	3	3	1	1	7	0	 3.98David Hernandez (BS,1; L,2-2)	0	4	5	5	1	0	0	 3.29

Yikes, you aren't kidding. With David it seems like he's either really good, or completely off his game. This is the 2nd outing over the past few weeks in which he wasn't able to retire a single batter while allowing 5 straight guys to reach. Not good. His walk rate is also a bit high.

5 guys reach and they all score before an out can be recorded? Yuck!

Hernandez is like a lot of relievers, when he comes into a game and can't find his command right away, he can look like he never pitched before in his life, whereas when he comes in and has command you wonder how anyone ever touches his stuff. I think he'll have a good career as a setup guy, but he's not consistent enough where I'd want him to be my closer (at least not at this stage of his career). Quality guy and I miss having his dad on our board.

I was really hoping we would draft Raymond.

Trading relievers for starting SS and 3B... always a better idea. Reynolds and Hardy are actually some of the best players on our team at the moment. I really enjoyed having Hernandez on the team, but I'm not about to let that sentimentality convince the trades weren't the right thing to do.

David came in with the base loaded in the 7th inning and surrended only 1 run due to a sac fly to CF, k'd Stanton and then a FO to LF. Then came in the 8th to strike out 2 and then was replaced. Nice job DH!! Also D'Back fans aren't really missing Reynolds!

Dear Mark Reynolds, I didn’t want to see ya go, but it was worth it. Good luck with that whole AL East thing.

It's not enough to just live, you gotta live for something.

    • I may be overly bullish with what I said, but what I meant was I think our lineup will be elite to the point a "defense/speed only" CF is probably OK if it came to it.
    • The point is, that if we extend Gunnar for 12 years and $300 million (I just made up a contract with easy math), he isn’t going to make $25 million next season. He’s going to make something like $2 million because it’s a pre-arbitration year. Then he’ll makes something like $7 million in 2026 $12 million in 2027, and $18 million in 2028. A mid market deal for a player (like 3 years for $45 million or 4 years for $56 million) should not impact the team’s ability to pay those salaries in those years. Extensions are about security. Teams don’t just hand exponentially more to players than they would make in those years when they structure the extension. “The Arb game” has nothing to do with this. It is about how extensions are structured and how a shorter term mid-market deal shouldn’t prevent them from paying those types of salaries in the early years of an extension (i.e., the first 3-4 years of an extension). If you don’t believe me, use the Internet and look up what Fernando Tatis Jr. has been paid in the early years of his extension or what Witt Jr. will make.  Burnes is a completely different discussion, but again I don’t believe the team has any interest in extending him. The Lunhow/Elias/Mejdal Astros provide a decent blueprint to what I think they’ll do with respect to pitching.
    • I don't think you can describe anyone who's still in A ball with 133 career pro PAs at age 22 as having a floor of three wins a season. At this point it's an open question as to whether he tops three wins in any MLB season. If you look for comparable players, say .310-.330 OBP, little power, plus-plus basestealing and CF defense, I think the archetype in recent baseball is Michael Bourn. Who did top out with some really good 5-6 win seasons, but tailed off quickly and only had 5-6 seasons as an above-average regular. Beyond him you're looking at guys like Jarrod Dyson, Dee Strange-Gordon, Ben Revere. But only a handful of years each as average to average-plus MLB regulars. And then lots and lots of players who didn't even reach that kind of level. I think we have a few years before we figure out where on that spectrum Bradfield falls.
    • 7 game winning streak since leaving Baltimore, the longest in the league so far this year. 
    • O's caught a huge break when the second base umpire called Jackson safe (rightfully so) in the ninth. No challenges left. Perhaps Hyde set the umpire up with the previous challenge. I lived a long life with the phantom play at second base, glad it wasn't called this time...Cold, late in the game...kudos to the ump.
    • It depends on if they can throw the breaking stuff for strikes. Haven't you heard? The FB is now thrown less than 50% of the time league-wide. 
    • Stealing puts a lot of wear and tear on the body.  So many things can go wrong and it's an incredibly long season.  Keeping their bodies in best shape to perform is very challenging.  I'd like to see them steal, but I think they need to pick their spots.
