Should be a fun game, but Cingrani is no Fernandez. He's a couple of tiers below.
"He hears the crescendoing last chords of the national anthem and sees the great open horseshoe of the grandstand and that unfolding vision of the grass that always seems to mean he has stepped outside his life - the rubbed shine that sweeps and bends from the raked dirt of the infield out to the high green fences. It is the excitement of a revealed thing."

After 20 pitches you have decided that?

I saw Cingrani pitch in the minors a lot and I thought he threw too many fastballs (and he struggled to find the zone even when he was goign). I passed on him because I figured big leaguers can hit non-David Price fastballs.

Pumping strikes. Kind of reminds me of Cliff Lee
Sarge: Whats gonna happen is that you jerk off the ball, almost wanna let this guy here jam you, and if it comes it comes.

Yea, I'm curious how he'll do the second time through the lineup.

Baseball and football are very different games. In a way, both of them are easy. Football is easy if you're crazy as hell. Baseball is easy if you've got patience. They'd both be easier for me if I were a little more crazy and a little more patient. ~ Bo Jackson

Fernandez on the other hand makes Cingrani look like child's play.

I really was hoping Cingrani would throw at least a show me breaker or changeup. Even in 2-2 counts it was nothing but 4-seamers. Deceptive delivery or not cant see that playing long term.

Smart walk on Votto though he was squeezed. Once he fell behind he just gave in.

He doesn't throw breaking balls that much. I don't think that'll change in the majors.

I read the scouting report too.
12- team H2H 6 x 6 (OBP, HR, R, RBI, Steals, XBH, QS, ERA, WHIP, Ks, K/BB, SvHd)
10- team Roto 5 x 5 standard cats
20- team Roto 6 x 6 (OBP, HR, R, RBI, Net Steals, XBH, QS, ERA, WHIP, Ks, K/BB, Net Saves)

And my teams are good.
