    Van Man is starting to look like a left handed Pelfrey, can’t get to the 5th inning.

    I’m liking Warwick Saupold, if that’s even his real name.

      +1 He’s come in several times and saved our pen (whether they deserve it or not) in some longer outings.

        They don’t call him WARwick Saupold for no reason. Or maybe they do.

    Norris either has so much stuff the ball doesn’t go where it is supposed to …or he just can’t throw it where he is supposed to…….I am not sure which….its nor like he nibbles at the corners. The ball just doesn’t go to the right spots!

    Ian Kennedy , one win on the year is about the 10+ pitcher with 0 or 1 win to dazzle the Pussycats!
