The Morning Edition (May 21, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • The Mariners blow two saves and the Indians only blow one in a wild one in Cleveland
  • Dickey beats Odorizzi north of the border
  • Hamels Ks 10 and walks none in a losing effort
  • The White Sox get to Lester in Chicago
  • Kershaw goes the distance, allows just one run against the Brewers
  • Corbin dazzles at Coors with a CG, 10 Ks

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Garza makes his season debut against the Pirates (7p Eastern)
  • Alex Cobb goes for the Rays in Toronto (7p Eastern)
  • Darvish welcomes the A’s to Arlington (8p Eastern)
  • Greinke returns to Milwaukee (8p Eastern)
  • Wainwright comes to Petco (10p Eastern)
  • Strasburg and Cain face off at the bay (10p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • When do we start to notice Partick Corbin?

As I write this, Patrick Corbin is plowing through the 7th inning in Colorado and hasn’t allowed a run and has surrendered just a single hit (He finished with a CG, 3 H, 1 R, 10 K line). Entering the night, he was 6-0, 53.1 IP, 1.52 ERA, 3.10 FIP, 1.2 WAR and those numbers are going to get better. Granted, this level isn’t sustainable, but he’s pretty good and is throwing a gem in one of the hardest places to pitch. Also, Clayton Kershaw, just stop it. Another CG tonight.
