    2 pitch guy with poor control. This is frustrating to watch.

    I have a feeling the Cubs are about to blow this game open.

    Being a young player with this coaching staff has got to suck.

    It was easy to predict. They're sitting on the fastball because he can't locate any secondary pitches.

    Don't know why I stayed up. Newk looks like a reliever.

    Different prospect...same result.

    They always seem to sh*t the bed when they get called up

    So, is it safe to say that Newk isn't going to walk 5 per 9 for his entire MiLB career, then figure it out in the big leagues?

    He's so much like Folty. He either learns to locate or he won't make it. He's got to have a 3rd pitch but the most important thing is learning to locate pitches. But it's gonna take some time.

    Man.. the over reaction is tremendous. The kid is due to struggle until he harnesses his command...

    Did Contreras say something to the Braves dugout rounding the bases...

    Reminds me so much of Folty. Dang you guys are tough on him. Rookie pitching against the champs. He's gonna have some crap games...most young pitchers do. Give him until about this time next year.
