I’m sitting here watching the D-backs / Astros game right now, and sure the D-backs are down 6-3 in the middle of the 7th, but holy cow! Why did the D-backs start Edgar Gonzalez when Max Scherzer was available??? 7 strikeouts SO FAR in his major league debut – he’s faced and sat down 13 straight batters!!!!!
I think Edgar Gonzalez’ time as a starter in the rotation is just about over. We have a new 5th starter, and Bob Melvin would be remiss to NOT have Scherzer starting in 5 days.
The kid is throwing GAS – at times he’s hitting 98 mph!
