Here's a troubling thought. This was Snell's 12th start of the season, and we could be in
for 20 more of these. He has had 32 starts in each of the past two years.


He was popping the fastball and his slider was very good. I just do not understand how he gets lit up with the stuff he has. I mentioned in another thread that he might be "tipping" his pitches. That would explain a lot.

He mentioned in today's paper that the ump was squeezing him all day.

He did get gyped on a couple of pitches, but that does not explain how he implodes in the second inning despite throwing pretty well. I don't knnow, maybe he needs to throw a third pitch (change or curve) more often . . . though in that respect, he threw quite a few curve balls in the game.

Snell said he had bad luck.
Russell said except for the five run inning he did well.

Accountability please. He has sucked for over a month now! Time for everyone to admit that.

Both Snell and Russell were talking about yesterday's game, not the past month.

My point is that you're criticizing what they said about one game because he hasn't pitched well in a month. Apples and oranges.
