Tyler Matzek sent home by Rockies


Recommended Posts

He got sent down to minors for poor performance. In 3+ innings at AAA, he walked 15 and hit 2 batters.

Holy ****, how do you walk 15 in 3+ innings?? That makes D-Cab look like Greg Maddux!

In his first minor league outing, he gave up 7 BB and 7 ER in 1 inning. Then had two scoreless inning appearances with a combined 3 walks. And then his last appearance lasted one out and consisted of 5 walks and 6 ER. Good for a 5.40 WHIP in the minors.

What sort of manager leaves a pitcher in after he's walked five guys in one inning. Seems insane to me that it would ever reach the point where he'd walk seven in one inning.

Yeah I had this thought too. Definitely not going to help any confidence issues if he gets left in to be that bad.

Wow and the pitches must have been so far off the hitters couldn't even get close, you would think after the first dozen walks or so, they would try to help the guy out by swinging at anything close.

Not trying?

I could try as hard as possible and still have a line something like 0.2 IP, 11H, 19 ER, 11 BB, 0K, 3 HBP. :)

Some guys just come down with Steve Blass disease. Although I think that much of the time that ends up being an underlying injury. I was in the stands for a Mark Wohlers rehab appearance in AAA when he was trying to come back from a case of the Rick Ankiels and it was all kinds of funny/sad as he'd throw one pitch 45 feet and the next one off the backstop.

    • Lots of things on here I disagree with but the true issue is that Urias isn’t a 3.5 WAR second baseman. He has no future, with the Os, as a third baseman.
    • Well that’s not true at all. They do that all the time
    • I guess you guys are missing the fact that it was a pretty good game called by the umpire, according to these numbers. 
    • I don't have any reason to believe that John will ever go away.  I am not a Washington football fan, but it is a lot like Dan Snyder.  These owners are universally despised and they just never sell and leave.  Approval ratings around 5% (if that) and it doesn't matter to them. Fascinating personalities, honestly.   As other "small" market teams extend or sign players and we basically do nothing, the evidence so far is we have a cheap loser of an owner who doesn't have a competitive bone in his body.  Makes sense, since his life has been gift wrapped since birth.  I'll be very happy to say I was wrong if we do anything other than 1 year contracts for relative nickels.  The real test will be if we are holding a playoff spot in late July.    
    • Three most impactful missed calls all went for the home town Red Sox and against the visiting Orioles. I wonder if there's a correlation between significant missed calls and A) impact to the home team, or B) impact to certain teams (you know who) regardless of the home / away factor. Somebody could probably get their doctorate by crunching those numbers. 
    • There is a better chance of DL Hall going into that role at some point, and likely the role he fits best anyway.  You keep on talking about the Lopez trade and how bad it was but you haven't mentioned Povich. And non of this correlates to Frazier in any way, shape or form
    • There is a difference between the two and some outfielders are not comfortable going back and forth. Both Santander and Stowers look much more comfortable in RF vs LF.
