Those could have been weather related too lol. They swung through some breaking balls that had zero break. Rutledge just missed a walk off 3R HR. Not
It looked to me like he was pitching with a hurting arm.
His demeanor was awful last night. It just seemed odd to see him walk off the mound after
eh he had a bunch of swinging strikes. not that concerned.
I completely agree in this specific instance. Carter needs an occasional start. Give Bird the day off against Sale and pray that Carter has 3 Ks but
ESPN gun had him topping out at 97. His slider looked miserable with zero bite. I agree the weather probably is the culprit but I'm a little concerned.
Not that it may matter much because it was ST, but Holliday did take Sale deep in the spring when he pretty much dominated the Yankees for 6 innings.
