Pagan doesn’t have nearly the stuff that Castillo does. Castillo throws several MPH faster and his breaking stuff moves more. The pitchFX shows this is a fact and not merely an opinion.

Castillo has been awful though for quite a while.

I mean, neither of them are playing in the majors at the moment ... So ... what we were told WAS true ...

"X-itis" means inflammation of the X.  There I just saved you 200k in student loan debt.

What does that have to do with him having better “stuff” than Pagan?

Keep an eye on Liam Hendriks.  He's had a great June (10.2IP, 1W, 0L, 6HLD, 1ER, 11.81K/9) and has been coming in for high leverage situations, often in the 7th inning while the A's are ahead.

2Ks and the save.

Looked nasty with 98MPH heat on the corners.

so hendriks takes over?

 

Susan Slusser above tweeted that he “it sounds like he” would. Also that Treinen calls it a rotator cuff strain.

Rotator cuff strain?  Yuck.

Boston's entire bullpen is just trash right now. Walden gives up a run, Barnes gives up 3 runs and walks 2 to load bases, Brasier walks 2 runs in right after that. Just goofing it. Josh Smith warming up for the 9th.

It has to do with the fact that Castillo sucks, despite how good his stuff is.  Sucked again today.

There's a whole lot of season left.

You were right.  After my little rant and then your reply to it on Thursday, two days later I have 4 closers after a trade, a pickup, and now picking up Hendriks thanks to an unfortunate injury.

I'm still right that Boston's situation is pretty much pointless though since it's become a dumpster that should be lit on fire by Alex Cora and Theo Epstein.  Today being a prime example.  How they managed to blow that lead against Toronto is pretty sad.

Hendriks might have the gig ros the way Treinen has looked on top of his bs lately

We now know that Treinen has been dealing with an injury for several weeks.

I'm not sure Melvin would allow him to be wally pipped if he comes back healthy and like the Treinen of last year.

But then again what do any of us know? It was a pretty easy call to say it would Hendriks though, regardless of the injury to Blake.

Who knows how long Trenein has had the injury actually, but still, who knows how long he'll be out.  I doubt it's anything but a fairly long term injury.
