Soto really got his **** together on the last three guys. Went called strike one on all three of them, and won the game nailing Yelich on the black.

He has some really good stuff, he just needs to harness it better.

Wow, only the seventh game in history with four players hitting two homers apiece. We saw some history tonight, gents.

that was quite a list. 3×2019, 2×1990s, 1947.

did he actually call a pitch in the dirt a "dirt ball"?

yes, while getting it wrong that Castro made it to third on said "dirt ball"

I've heard him say that a few times. Also, a strike on the corner "rode the rail". I don't like any of it.

So, Derek Holland...

Did he just get lucky tonight? His stuff seemed good, which is jarring considering how bad he was earlier

Cross our fingers he found what he had in spring training. Hopefully it lasts

Schoop is definitely on a major roll

I think he had issues with getting into camp, didn't he?  For some reason it seems like he was late to Lakeland for some reason.  So, I guess its understandable that playing catch up during April probably ain't optimal.  And then throw in learning how to play 1B.

At any rate, these more recent numbers seem tolerable:

His last week of play should be illegal.  I mean, really, these opposing pitchers have families to feed, and he's going to get them demoted to AAA if he keeps this pace up.

Fetter pulled him aside and just glared at him.  Didn't orally make a peep.  Just a good stern look.  Message sent.

Just watched the highlights, some serious offense...and looks like Boyd has hit his obligatory post allstar game gascan status pre allstar game.. oh well, AL probably would have mucked up any trade potential anyway...welcome to the future Boyd!

Just an FYI, it's ok to not just assume the worst in everyone. Dude has 4 bad starts after an absurd run of 7 and his season's over! Waive the white flag! 

Maybe it's simply his numbers reverting to where they should be. He wasn't going to be a sub-2 ERA guy.

One thing I think would help is that he should use his curve more but stop trying to be so fine with it.  He threw the it just wide to the arm side a bunch of times trying to perfectly back door a RHH (only 2 of 9 for strikes). It's probably the one pitch he can just throw over the plate - 90% of the time a hitter is going to take 74 coming after 93.

But TBF, numbers argue you can probably also blame that box of balls at least in part. It's not like Boyd was the only guy to give up hard hit balls last night. 23 balls were hit with over 95 mph exit velo - Boyd was responsible for 4 of them or just about the proportion of the game he pitched. Balls were taking off no matter who was throwing them.

I'm not assuming the worst in Boyd, I'm assuming that (as you said) he's reverting to where he should be, which translates into an average pitcher at best, with no trade value, thus stamping out all the trade speculation in regards to his typical early season ace type performance.  As I said, welcome to the future Matthew....he's gonna be a Tiger for awhile now, and good for him.

Boyd becomes a free agent after 2022.

You can waive goodbye right then and there...

If not before then. Offers won't be great at all. And he's useful until a better replacement is found. So he might make it to free agency as a Tiger for those reasons...
