One step forward, two steps back. What an ugly, ugly game yesterday. I have no idea what is going on with this rotation.
Evan Grant has a final rundown on Ranger draft stuff, saying that their first choice will likely be a high school pitcher, and will likely be a Boras client.
Jim Reeves talks about recent draft failures of the Rangers, but ruins any credibility he might have with this line:
Kasey Kiker had a 4.13 ERA as an 18 year old in a league filled with 21 and 22 year old guys who just finished 3 or 4 years of college.
He was 0-7 because he started 15 games, but never went deep enough into games (because of limits on his pitch counts) to go 5 innings.
To suggest that Kiker had an inauspicious debut is just flat wrong.
