This is no way to start a road trip! Little did I know the Marlins pitchers would make Santa Claus look like the biggest skinflint of all time.
But let's try it again and see if we can win one of these.
Tucker normally does pretty well the first time through the lineup but the wheels have come off the wagon the second time around in his last two starts. He's got talent and he's got stuff but he is still learning. If he can keep the ball in the yard, that would help.
De La Rosa had command issues in his last two starts, thus falling behind the hitters early in the count. He is lefty but left-handed hitters are hitting for a .340 average against him. The Marlins faced him last year when he was with Kansas City and went to town scoring 7 runs in 4.2 innings. His out pitch is a very good slider.
Note: Justin Miller left yesterday's game with elbow discomfort and re-evaluated today with an MRI in his future.
And it just keeps getting better and better.
Ichthyomancy is hoping the bullpen is through destroying their stats. Good Luck!
