To the naked eye Jamie Moyer has been what Niecy Nash refers to as a hot mess. With a 7.50 ERA, that would be a fair assessment. However, dig a bit deeper and it's not as bad as it seems. Moyer has pitched 12 innings and 10 of those innings have seen the opposition go scoreless. For you math geniuses that leaves 2 innings that haven't been scoreless, and in those 2 innings the opponent has scored 10 runs. In his first start the 3rd inning smacked him around like Chris Brown on Rhianna, and last night it was the 1st inning making him his bitch. If Jamie can just get rid of that one big bad inning, he might actually help this team.
Speaking of pitchers that need to step up their game, Cole Hamels goes for the Phils this afternoon in his 3rd start of the season. Can he muster at least a quality start (6 ip with 3 er or less) or will he peter out and smile gaily in the dugout like he did his job because he's in line for the W after barely escaping 5 innings?
I'm a dick, why do I make fun of him? The man is clearly awesome, he does Comcast commercials after all.
