    Well good for Max. I would be barking at Stras too. Ratios have been blown to hell.

    He has great command of his offspead pitches esp the slider. You don’t need a high velocity fastball to be a top tier pitcher. The fact that he can control his offspeed pitches for strikes actually adds velocity on his fastball from a hitters perspective. From what I’ve seen as a trend this season is if he gets into fastball counts and hitters can sit on it, then yes the velocity can play a factor and he can get hit a bit. However he has a 1.05 Whip this season which shows he hasn’t been giving up too much damage. In fact, some of the games in which he has been hit hard are typically due to one bad inning. Corbin has always had upside and you’re seeing a pitcher who is coming into his own. I would rather own a guy who may not have he best velocity but is a true pitcher and can command his pitches. Flame throwers burn out too fast.

    Not to make this a bench coach discussion but with Tepera close to returning, is Clippard a safe drop? Hasn’t received too much action and August is right around the corner with Osuna lurking.

    Pittsburgh’s offense apparently took offence to being called mediocre.

    Thanks for ensuring I lose my pitching matchup this week. Wow

    Another stolen base

    Anything to see here? Has been hitting solid of late. 9 runs, 2 HRs, 16 RBIs, 2 Sbs with a .308 BA in the last 14 days.

    Dude is starting to heat up. Looks like he’s getting a crack at the leadoff spot and is handling it better than Kinsler was. Power is starting to come around. Might be worth a look.

    Anyone know why he was removed from the game?

    Well what a statement today. 3 for 4. 3R 2HR 4RBI and 1SB. Way to fill up the stat line. Wish there wasn’t so much congestion in the brewers outfield. And there’s even rumors of the Brew Crew acquiring Dietrich which would clog up the outfield even more.

    Getting bumped from the leadoff spot today. Batting 7th. Not a good spot esp with that lineup struggling. If he doesn’t get back the leadoff spot he’s droppable since he’s not hitting in front of Trout.

    Very solid outing today. 7in 3hits 0walks 12ks 0runs. This is why you can’t drop him because at any given day he can put up SP1 numbers. His K/9 has been stellar this season due to his terrific offspeed pitches. It’s when he gets behind in the counts and relies on his fastball that he’s gotten hit hard. The Ks I feel will be there ROS but he will need to rely on controlling the offspeed stuff and staying ahead of hitters. He’s not a flame thrower so control is his key. So far he’s shown enough glimpses that he can put it all together. Let’s just hope moving forward this is a step towards finding that consistency. Congrats to those of you brave enough to start him.
