My apologies for my unavailability yesterday, but I am back in the saddle. Wait....what is that....oh no....
GOOD GOD, THAT'S BEN HENRY'S MUSIC!!
He's teased us so much this season, but he actually pitched last night. It did not go well. Unless you consider 6 ER in 3.2 IP good. And if you do, you must be a member of the Texas Rangers pitching staff circa 2001. Ben Snyder and Fredo Boscan were not much better. Brennan Garr was abhorrent. Willy Mehscoso was not bad, but the all-meh relief corps of Eyre/Rapada/Madrigal ruined the day.
Today will hopefully be better:
- OKC: off
- FRI (7:00): The good folks at BBTiA uncertainly project Pimentel in his first AA performance, Lucas confirms. As charred and tattered as the FRI rotation is right now, who knows.
- BAK (9:05): Kennil Gomez, per Lucas, though BBTiA uncertainly mentions Yoon-Hee Nam. As the recently promoted guys like Wieland go into innings-management mode, I don't know how they're going to handle the Blaze rotation. We may see a few tandem starter-type appearances down the stretch.
- HIC (6:00): Braden "Jethro" Tullis. Thanks to someone on a recent minors thread for giving me that nickname idea.
- SPOK (8:30): Rojas.
- ARI (9:00): Melo.
