clay really scares me. million dollar arm with a 10 cent heart... cant pitch thru pain, cant fight thru anything.. must be wearing on guys like pedy to watch this jabro always give his usual 60%!
Again you appear to have no clue about the game of baseball. Nothing new there.
Clay had 3 errors behind him from the 19-20yo in Lowell. He was not throwing at full velocity, was just trying to get the feel for the ball, his pitches, and just being in a game atmosphere after 2.5 months off. The 3 errors extended the inning for him as he threw almost 40 pitches.
Im not saying he was shutting them down, but that wasnt what he set out to do. If you understood this game and how things are usually done in this situation, this thread wouldnt have even been created as a "Bash Clay" type thread that it is. There is a process Clay has to go through. Your comments about a 10 cent arm are pathetic.
sorry Southy but i think youre off target here - we know it was a rehab assignment but it is apparent that Clay's sabbatical has destroyed what dominance he had earlier in the season...this is the point...i could care less how mnay errors his team had - he seems like a looooong way off in his return to being a starter, let alone a dominant one.
I think you're missing the point. It doesn't matter if George Washington was pitching. The Red Sox and EVERY TEAM limits not only pitches per outing, but pitches per inning. 3 errors = 3 outs. Clay put the ball in play and should have been out of the inning but was not supported by a low A 19 year old defense.
That is why he was pulled from the first inning.
NOT because of performance.
NOT because he was in pain
the fact that his pitch count grew to high largely due to the defense behind him is largely out of his control and not a testemant to how he was pitching in any shape or form.
