It’s just like American League baseball, only not as good!
Livan Hernandez and Josh Fogg are currently in a pitcher’s duel in the 6th inning. Both will be FAs at season’s end. You watch a game like tonight and you think to yourself “hell, if the Yankees had a starter like that to give them 1 ER over 6+, they’d be all set!”
Either would be sporting a 7+ ERA and DFA’d by June, I promise you.
Do not get lured in by NL baseball. It is not the same game. It turns Jeff Weaver into a hero. Keep reminding yourself.
