    Tanaka looked really good last night.  he should be very proud of his performance.

    Not too many starting pitchers haven't looked good against this embarrassing line-up.

    Maybe if he used his mediocre straight fastball as a change of pace instead of a staple, he may be even better. Every shot was off it. I also noticed he gets the borderline call (The Mariano-Schilling-Maddux-Glavine treatment); very unusual for a rookie.

    Yes,  and got calls Lester didn't, on arguably better pitches, which I think threw Lester off. He's gotten better about handling his emotions, but they still effect him. Can't change it, if it's who you are

    No, but that wasn't the point  of your post, or mine. When the opposing pitcher, rookie or not, is getting calls you're not, it's hard to just shrug it off. Where's KST this when you need her;)

    Regardless (again), Last yr's WS has made me a complete believer in him; and many here were detractors mid-season when he was slumping, as can happen to anyone. I would take him on my team any day.

    Maybe if he used his mediocre straight fastball as a change of pace instead of a staple, he may be even better. Every shot was off it. I also noticed he gets the borderline call (The Mariano-Schilling-Maddux-Glavine treatment); very unusual for a rookie.

    Regardless, he didn't have his usual command; 118 pitches in 4 and 2/3 says something.

    Regardless (again), Last yr's WS has made me a complete believer in him; and many here were detractors mid-season when he was slumping, as can happen to anyone.

    Yes,  and got calls Lester didn't, on arguably better pitches, which I think threw Lester off. He's gotten better about handling his emotions, but they still effect him.

    Regardless (again), Last yr's WS has made me a complete believer in him; and many here were detractors mid-season when he was slumping, as can happen to anyone.

    I don't watch many games, actually, but I did watch yesterday. The umpire's strike zone appeared to be in general  shifted north a few inches.


     


    On another subject, the Soriano double would have IMO been caught by the Mays-Erstad-Edmonds-Puckett-Lynn-before-injury-Flood-Blair types

    Maybe if he used his mediocre straight fastball as a change of pace instead of a staple, he may be even better. Every shot was off it. I also noticed he gets the borderline call (The Mariano-Schilling-Maddux-Glavine treatment); very unusual for a rookie.

    a couple/few mistakes and the hitters didnt miss them.  ortiz was sitting FB 3-1 and absolutely crushed the pitch.  but all pitchers will say they do not mind giving up solo HR's.  he pitched really well for his first taste of the rivalry.  certainly better than i was hoping..

    That was the SI scouting report in spring training, slash. great stuff but mistakes were very hit-able. He was impressive, but we'll see after teams see him, after a time or two

    With control, slider, and a splitter like that, I don't think it's going to matter that much. And if he reduces his mistakes some, he could be downright scary.

    Tanaka looked really good last night.  he should be very proud of his performance.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     




    Maybe if he used his mediocre straight fastball as a change of pace instead of a staple, he may be even better. Every shot was off it. I also noticed he gets the borderline call (The Mariano-Schilling-Maddux-Glavine treatment); very unusual for a rookie.

    a couple/few mistakes and the hitters didnt miss them.  ortiz was sitting FB 3-1 and absolutely crushed the pitch.  but all pitchers will say they do not mind giving up solo HR's.  he pitched really well for his first taste of the rivalry.  certainly better than i was hoping..

    That was the SI scouting report in spring training, slash. great stuff but mistakes were very hit-able. He was impressive, but we'll see after teams see him, after a time or two

    With control, slider, and a splitter like that, I don't think it's going to matter that much. And if he reduces his mistakes some, he could be downright scary.
