    Thanks. Still think I'm sitting him. I hope he goes off on my bench then I'll go back to starting him without question. Maybe it's just me but I always have an uneasy feeling about starting guys when their starts get pushed back. Something about them being creatures of habit and their preparation and routine getting changed that I feel sometimes messes with guys. He's a veteran though so you would think it wouldn't do that to him but either way he's coming back from an injury and a start in which he looked really bad in the early portion of the start.

    Did he get scratched? He’s no longer listed as the starter on yahoo or on the mlb at bat app.

    Thats far from a guarantee though. His hearing was just pushed back to August 1st so his attourneys could have more time to prepare. Now this is just a hearing which is not always where a courts decision is made. It’s already been said he’s pleading not guilty so if the court feels the case against him says otherwise this could go to trial. If that happens he’s likely done for the year. If it doesn’t go to trial and he enters a plea bargain it could still possibly end his chances of playing this year. Now if everything goes the way Osuna hopes it does and he’s found not guilty he could be a great piece for teams downthe stretch. To me it just seems like a lot needs to go his way for that to happen.

    I’m torn between starting him or not today. My gut says to sit this one out even though it is at home. His last start he just didn’t look right still. What are others doing?

    What a stellar line from him last night! 8 1/3 IP of shutout ball (run was unearned) with 5 hits, 1 walk and 8 ks. His control was much better as he threw 75 of his 109 pitches for strikes (didn’t watch the game) and he also induced 11 groundball outs. His next outing is Sunday against the Padres. I’ll be starting him for that one.

    As it stands he’s gone 4 innings throwing 34 of his 49 pitches for strikes. He’s also gotten first pitch strikes to 10 of the 14 hitters he’s faced and gotten 6 groundouts. This is by far the best he’s done through four innings in a while. I won’t call him back just yet but it’s a start. Let’s see how he finishes this out.

    Benching Hendricks today. I don't trust him at all right now. My belief is it's something mechanical he's dealing with that is messing with his control and hope it's fixed soon. Hope he does well from my bench.

    I wasn’t watching the game but on the mlb at bat app his fastball was consistently at 88-89 which is only a couple mph slower than it was prior to the injury and last year. He’s no longer a guy that throws 93-94 and hasn’t been since the 2015-2016 seasons. I think this can be chalked up to rust.

    This year yes. For the future only time will tell.

    Same here. Not worried but it’s something I’ve been making more of. His last 3 starts were against the cubs twice and the Rockies once which aren’t easy lineups. Neither is his next start at LAA. We’ll see how he does but I’m still starting him. Just not with as much confidence as I had a few weeks ago.
  11. Kyle Hendricks 2018 Outllook

    I have a feeling it’s something mechanical causing him to lose his control. Just a hunch and if that’s the case it’s correctable as long as it’s figured out by the pitching staff.

    Yeah I was just curious as to why they didn’t bring in Clippard or Oh (not knowing who is the guy yet) instead of having Axford go multiple. I’ll take the one out save though. Although Oh just went 3 out of the last 4 games so I wouldn’t say yet that Clippard is the guy even though he got the call tonight.

    Axford in for the Toronto save opp???
  14. Yahoo’s app has been extra horrible lately. Doesn’t update in real time then you close the app out and it will be updated. Then refresh again and none of your stats fromtoday are counted. Come on Yahoo. Get your ish together.

    Mad that I didn’t listen to myself and actualled started him. I had a last min change of heart thinking it’s just the Tigers.
