Patteron Update

I'm half listening on the radio, but he didn't seem sharp. Dave kept pointing out that he was repeatedly missing his target and Svrluga, in his blog, noted that he wasn't controlling his breaking pitches.

He only allowed one run, but the rest of his numbers were ugly. 72 pitches (shouldn't he be throwing more at this point?) and only 38 strikes -- meaning 34 balls!?.

Even when he's going well, he's not really an efficient pitcher, but this isn't encouraging. I'm sure they'll let us know what the radar guns were saying about his velocity later.

  • I was at the game, sitting right behind home plate and I can tell you first hand that Patterson did not look right. Except for the first couple of hitters, he labored and was totally out of gas by the end of the third inning. He had control problems and he was hit hard at times. He is definitely not the Patterson of 2005, at least not yet. On the plus side, there is reason to hope because the Nats are playing better ball. I really like Kory Casto and Josh Wilson. Josh reminds me of a Jamey Carroll but with a better stick and more power. He really hustles. Sorry to ruin your weekend, Chris, but Nook Logan had a great game both batting and in the field.
