Brutal pitch count for Odorizzi right now, but we'll take the goose egg. That walk to the struggling Braves hitter was not a good look.

 

C'mon, bats!

Odo is gonna have to tighten it up.

 

Also, looking like it COULD be a bullpen game unless he works on the pitch count

Welp, we’re going to get a good long look at the bullpen tonight.

It hasn't been pretty, but Odo didn't allow any hard contact his first time through the order.

too bad he’ll be done after five innings

Jake really needs to work on keeping that pitch count under control

So, we want to have a SOLID bench for this game. Garver, Cron, Schoop and Sano all available for pinch-hitting or late inning defensive play.

I know we get spoiled by Buxton, but that was a really nice catch by Duvall.

I heard Mr. Kaat ask about the pitch count and where it came from, so, I'm going to toss a theory out there:

 

The pitch count has very little to do with wear and tear on the arm and a lot to do with how many times a pitcher has gone through the rotation.

 

If the average AB lasts 4 pitches, on a 100 pitch count limit, (I'm too lazy to look it up, so, grain of salt and all that) that's 25 outs or almost three times through the order.

 

I believe it's pretty well established that most pitchers, after the third time through the order, stand a good chance of getting hit around the park pretty good.

 

Again, a theory, or, speculation, on my part.

We need to spend more time in the dugout and less in the field. Jake has zero pace to his game

Odorizzi pretty clearly not going to pitch to Freeman or Donaldson.
