I gotta say I'm pretty pumped to watch some baseball today as a guy that loves his pitching.

Starters I'm jacked up to see pitch.

1) Rubby De La Rosa @ DET, he looked phenomenal in his first start this season Vs TB. Sat at 95 mph, very good command, lots of whiffs, and a killer GB%. Definitely perked my interest.

2) Eddie Butler Vs LAD. Aside from Archie Bradley he was my favorite MiLB pitching prospect coming into '14. His home park is an obvious concern, and he's soured some on me due to not missing bats thus far in '14. Rumor is Rockies having him just working on getting GB and sinker command, but we'll see. I love the kids velocity, bowling ball sinker, elite command, monster GB %, filthy change, and very good slider.

3) Marcus Stroman Vs STL. After getting yanked around by the Jays he finally got a chance to start Vs KC and the results were impressive. He showed great command, WHIFFS, and uncorked some filthy breaking stuff I didn't know he had. Look forward to seeing him face a much better and more patient lineup tonight.

4) Trevor Bauer @ TEX, I still can't stand this kid from a personality standpoint, but he has been pretty damn good. He has been atrocious in his career on the road, so this will be a good test.

5) Dallas Keuchel @ MIN. I just like watching this dude pitch, works fast, trusts the power of a well placed sinking fastball, and low pitch counts.

I love watching him pitch. He's got great mechanics and can throw heat. If he can put up a quality start with a few Ks @Tex I'm sold.

His main issue is composure. He goes through sudden bouts of wildness, usually triggered by something small like not getting a close call. But even his wildness has an order to it. It's vertical wildness, he usually misses too high or in the dirt with his fastball, but it's not like he's leaving it over the plate.

Lol. Cubs announcers after Rondon strikes out Yelich to end the inning: "So Rondon gets out if it". Man, even they're used to it if giving up 3 runs to tie the game is "getting put of it".

The Cubs are so pathetically bad.

The sad part is their pitching staff hasn't been actually half bad, and they might have found their closer of the future in Neil Ramirez.

But.. God... just brutal.

Oh my Christ. Davis just hurt his hand trying to take 2nd after a single when Yoenis F'n Cespedes played the ball. Just stupid.

Edit: stayed in the game. Thank god.
