    Newk is through 5 with 2bb and 5k. But at 80 pitches. So probably one more inning is it. Getting closer though.

    We should draft pitchers with elite stuff who can control their stuff and don't get hurt. Those are easy to find right?

    Great stuff from Sanchez, he seems to go back and forth with his starts from great to iffy. I'm hoping he stays looking this amazing.

    Newk had a great game and could make it further without the walks.

    I hear you, but Newk only gave up 2 hits.

    Sanchez with 9Ks today really makes up for his 3 walks too. If he can maintain a good K:BB Ratio, he could be at least a great reliever.

    I am not sure if it is a pattern, but we always comment on Newcome's high walk total, but this game he walked 3 in the last 1.1 inning. 3/4 of his walks came after ~80 pitches. The reason I noticed is that we had this same kind of discussion a few starts back when he pitched great and gave up 2 walks in his last inning.

    Is it possible that he is "getting it" but when he starts to tire out, he loses his mechanics? Has anyone watched him in person?

    I completely agree and wanted to say this exactly. His strike to ball ratio is still to low but he is getting closer. His ERA has dropped below 4.

    I've seen someone bring this up ion the past before too. Would be interesting to dig in and see if this is indeed the pattern...walks late in the game.

    I just went over Newcomb's game logs for his last 10 starts, during which he has walked 29 batters. Here is the breakdown by inning:

    1st: 8
    2nd: 5
    3rd: 4
    4th: 1
    5th: 3
    6th: 5
    7th: 3

    Unfortunately, it looks like he is just consistently wild, and it appears to have nothing to do with fatigue late in the game.

    His strike to pitch % has been above 60% in every game since his debacle of .2 innings except for this last start.. I think that was 58%. He has been trending better, but still needs to stop running deep counts. He has only gone over 6 innings in 2 games I think. Those are the things I look for. I also think teams learned from the first meetings. He always seemed to fair worse the second time he faced an opponent.

    Wow, I thought he was long out of baseball. He's probably still pouting about being traded away from his beloved Angels.

    With Gant shaky, and Whalen about to be shut down...I wouldnt be surprised if Newcomb gets a Sept call up.

    The last hurdle to fall for Nuke Newcomb is the walks. He is dominating folks.
