San Diego Padres
The Padres lost both of their games to Colorado after they beat the Rockies for their first win of the season. The Padres lost three of four in all after getting swept by Milwaukee in the opening series of the season.
And now the road only gets harder with three in Houston this weekend. The Astros have had one of the quickest starts in baseball. Of course, they also won the World Series last season, if you aren’t buying the small sample size.
Bryan Mitchell came over in a trade with the Yankees and he wasn’t good in his first start of the season against Milwaukee, giving up eight hits and five runs in five innings. He walked three and didn’t punch anybody out.
Mitchell isn’t a prospect anymore. He’s 26 years old and has consistently looked good at the minor league level and not so much as a big leaguer. To me, it looks like he’s a minor league all-star and a Major League journeyman. Guys like him don’t last long at Minute Maid Park these days.
Houston won its first three home games after taking three of four from the Rangers in Arlington to start the season. Houston’s starting pitching was on the mark in Baltimore and now the ‘Stros continue their soft schedule to start April with this weekend’s series.
AJ Hinch with throw Lance McCullers on Friday and Gerrit Cole on Saturday. Cole got a win and punched out 10 in his first start in an Astros uniform last week.
I’m definitely buying Cole to have a big season, even if he is making the trip from NL to AL. He’s just always struck me as a guy who will be better a little later in his career, once he’s had time to mature. He was also not happy in Pittsburgh; you didn’t have to have a press pass to realize that.
Perfect landing spot in Houston, which looks like it has pitching that only the Indians can match in the American League.
