Jhoulys Chacin is interesting, which is more than most in my position would be willing to say.
Most have him down as a totally washed out pitcher who had one good season in Colorado. Now he’s nothing more than material to make fun of the Padres with.
But Chacin signed with San Diego this offseason for less money because he wants to prove himself as a starter now that he’s finally healthy.
That one good season I mentioned came in 2013 when he was worth 5.9 wins in 31 starts for the Rockies.
He could be in for a little revitalization in San Diego (he’s only 29 after all). Could it come early against the DR? Probably not. But I’m going to keep watch.
In other news the Venezuelan bats completely let us down yesterday (really, we were further away from the over than that) but will see a quick turnaround, going up against another good MLB starter in Edinson Volquez.
Volquez started the DR’s second game in Pool C when United States hit him and his defense didn’t do anything to help.
Ironically, Nelson Cruz was the DR’s only outfielder not to make an error against the US.
Misplays from Marte and Bautista hurt the DR early and the US knocked six base hits against Volquez in 3.2 innings. He gave up three runs, only one of which was earned.
The lead-in about Chacin is good and cute but if we’re real, the Dominicans should take him for a ride, unless he’s really got it going against the heavy right-handed lineup.
No way this team is going to leave this tournament quietly.
Free Venezuela vs. Dominican Republic WBC Prediction: The DR brings out all the stops.
I wouldn’t even be surprised to see the DR do a little running tonight in a game it absolutely needs, and should get.
4* Free WBC Betting Pick: DR Runline -103
This is a more reasonable play than the high-priced moneyline. Don’t like that the DR is the home side, but do like it in a desperate spot.
