He was AWESOME. Best pitcher ever, the umpires robbed him. It’s amazing the Pirates got him, I’m sure he’ll win the Cy Young next year.

This somehow erases 5 months of being the ace on a very good team at Indy. Locke and Owens were there but Van Den Hurk was a horse all year. He is a power arm when he comes out of the pen. Do we have better options? probably. But he is hardly a bum.

All I saw was that “bum” hitting 94/95 consistently with movement and a decent enough of a curveball. I just think there were a lot of different aspects of the team, and especially the bullpen, which were mismanaged down the stretch. My opinion.

Sutton seemed to be a player that many wanted to criticize but I thought he was a good add and would have been a better play down the stretch than Mercer and maybe even Harrison. He seemed to have better strike zone awareness and was versatile, although we hardly got a chance to see that side of his game. Both good guys though and I wish them success at sticking somewhere next year that doesn’t come back to burn us (Steve Pearce).
