Remember Carp’s salsa days? As soon as he duped MO into extending him for all those millions of dollars of the fans’ money (‘I want to finish my career as a Cardinal.’), he quit doing salsa and shamelessly reverted to what he’s giving us now. I feel betrayed.
I have no problem seeing Oviedo going down to sharpen up. He was brought in early out of desperation when everybody went down. He could be much better next year.
I disagree. A guy can either throw strikes or he can’t and Oviedo can’t. 2018 in Peoria 5.8 BB/9, 2019 in Springfield 5.1 BB/9, this year in STL 5.3 BB/9. In each case WHIP up over 1.500 as you expect with those walk rates. That never works in a MLB rotation. We have nothing much better at the moment, but other than that, they are wasting their time.
Zeuch is a guy we wouldn’t have looked at previously. He doesn’t miss enough bats. Low K rate. But has always had a good walk rate too, although not this year in his MLB stint. The trend with these bargain bin guys has been low walk rate. A total 180 from previously.
Got lucky on that steal, he might have been in there. I don’t know why edman took the mitt off of him. He holds it on him and there isn’t any question. Our guys don’t even have basic fielding fundamentals down.
