Although his outing was shortened by a rain delay, Chris Tillman did pitch 2 good innings before the showers came. His velocity was up a bit, and he still had the big curve ball. Also, his strikes-to-balls ratio was much improved as well.

Good to hear, thanks for the update. I am certainly not ready to write him off yet.

I didn't see him pitch because I was at OPACY last night (Woo hoo :)), but here are his numbers. In his previous start, he pitched a very promising 2 innings before the rains came and cut his night short. Last night ??? Well ...........

Believe it or not, he pitched well after the first inning. He retired final 12 of the final 13 batters that he faced. The one batter that got on base in the 6th inning was picked off by Tillman. 3 of the 4 runs were earned. And he had a much better strikes-to-balls ratio.

Any word on the velo ?

The Tides broadcast didn't have a radar gun for the viewer. I liked the movement on his pitches and the fact that he didn't fall apart after the first inning, particularly after the error that cost him an additional run and a few extra pitches in said inning. He just went about his business as if nothing bad had happened for the rest of the game.

EDIT: I just watched the game again, and he blew away a hitter in the 6th inning on 3 pitches with 91 MPH heat (the broadcasters occasionally gave the speed of the radar gun that they had access to, but we didn't). :)

    • Yeah, basically this, that Westburg's underlying numbers (EV, barrel %, xwOBA) seem to point at this being pretty real, or at least that there's nothing 'undeserved / lucky' about this hot streak, if it's just that. 
    • The problem with a Cowser/Kjerstad/Stowers/Bradfield outfield roster is there are no right handers to handle LHP. I don't think and completely left handed outfield is the destination for an organization the values versatility.
    • Looks maybe concussion related. 
    • How can you not be romantic about baseball? This seems slightly poetic. I enjoyed reading, and correlated your experience in the stands back to what I watch in Game 1 on MASN.  It was also pretty cool to hear Jim Palmer give you a shout out in Game 2 of the series on Live TV.
    • I am not worried.  It just doesn’t remotely meet the eye test.  He has been great in the field . I can think of at least 3 outstanding plays he has made and not any that I thought he should have gotten but didn’t. Meanwhile Holliday is 3 OAA and I can’t think of an outstanding play and can think of a number I thought he should have made. 
    • Nicely stated Roy. Every since I was 9 years old and saw the O's vs. the Tokyo Giants in Tokyo in 1971, I've been infected with the Orange/Black virus. There is no cure and I don't want one. You and I sat at the lunch table with Jim Palmer at the 1970 World Series Champs reunion, and its still one of my enduring baseball memories. You said I looked like Carlton Fisk! I was at all 3 games in this Angels series, right behind the O's dugout. I got to see all our boys, and just simply love to watch this team play. And in true baseball fashion, the one game on paper we should have dominated (GRod vs. 8+ ERA Channing), we end up down 7-0 and lose. But watching Gunnar's homers, his electric triple, and he made a fantastic play today on a ball that went under Westburg's glove, Adley do Adley things, Cowser, holy crap. Kimbrel v. Trout with bases loaded, bottom of 9th, 2 outs, down by 2? That was fun. Next game Trout bats leadoff and torches a GRod fastball for a homer to the opposite field.  An observation.... If you didn't know anything about the team, and you only watched game 1 batting practice, you'd think Cowser and O'Hearn were the studs of the team. Mountcastle was taking BP with the reserves and he put on a show as well.  Home after 3 straight days watching this O's team, so jealous of the Balt fans in Balt that get to see the team with regularity. It's a special bunch.
