I was at the game, and Bundy was in complete control.    Even the hits off him were not hit hard at all.

On the radio after the game, both Joe Angel and Dave Johnson were concerned about how many breaking pitches Bundy threw, and how that would impact his next start.   Johnson said he threw about 35 cutter/sliders, and Angel said he threw only about 22 fastballs all game.    Something to keep an eye on, I guess, but it's hard not to be thrilled with this outing.

He definitely threw more than 22 FBs. At the same time, I'm not sure Bundy will ever heavily rely on his FB. His breaking ball, cutter, and change are simple too good.

 

We could see a pitcher like Jon Lester who throws 50% FB and mixes in three other quality pitches.

I tried to check the FB count on brooksbaseball.net, but their data is messed up.    They have Bundy throwing 117 pitches, but he only threw 99.

Bundy is throwing the flat fbs he did last year, he can make them run in on rhb and occasionally get sink, which should obviously help the hr numbers. He was much better today than he was in any game last year, he was, without question, the best player on the field tonight against a team that had a season of tape on him, it was impressive.

Velocity isn't there, but he has control right now which is good. We'll see if he gets some of that velocity back as we move on.

Found it interesting that he said he only threw a handful of changeups. His non-fastballs were mainly his curveball and :gasp: his cutter (slider). That's something to keep an eye on in 2017.

Please stay healthy, please stay healthy...he looked great today.

He needed a 3rd pitch to throw to right handers, obviously, and he didn't like the results of the change to rhb ...now we have to hope we don't hear the word "tightness" all year.

I contacted them and they fixed it.   They now show Bundy having thrown 47 fastballs, 37 changeups (which includes the cutter/sliders) and 15 curve balls.    He got 14 whiffs on the change/cutter/sliders.   That's outstanding, so long as he doesn't hurt himself overusing the pitch.

    • Right. I’ve ignored him because he’s not very good and he has an extra year, and the Rockies are really weird about never trading guys even when it’s clear they should. Hopefully they wise up and that helps expand the supply side of the SP market.
    • So Mullins hits a combined .300 with RISP in 2022/2023, did only hit .213 in 2021 when he hit .291 and went 30/30 and has a slightly higher career batting average with RISP than he does overall and he is "not very good in RISP for careers".  It certainly appears that there is an element of luck when his worst year for hitting with RISP was by far his best year overall and his best years with RISP were weaker years overall, but I see no basis for concluding he is "not very good in RISP for his career". Am I missing something?
    • There’s a lot of SP who COULD be moved at the trade deadline. But who are the locks to get traded? I think it’s only Flaherty, Kikuchi and Fedde, and probably Crochet. And the Rays are likely to deal one of Eflin or Littell. If the Rangers are sellers, that adds Scherzer and Heaney, but that’s TBD. Anybody else? I think this is the main reason we could see some more off-season-type trades with players with more years of control than your typical 0.5 rental & 1.5 year types. Plus the phenomenon being talked about more of teams not being inclined to trade during the off-season when there are free agent alternatives. Hoping teams get more creative this year, like MIA and LAA with their SPs with more control.  
    • Meh it's a pooty tang 3 game stretch. Bad approach up and down the lineup, bad pitching, a bad series. This crap happens all the time to good teams. It'll get better.  Guys like Mateo, McCann, Urias, Hays.... meh. They are very replaceable. I think Mullins to a lesser degree because he gets such good reads & jumps in CF.  Now, the pitching.... we need to address the pitching.
    • The injury kept him out from June 18-29, so his June numbers were almost all pre-injury.  He did hit one of his two June homers on June 30 after returning.    
    • They don’t like his second base defense.
