He has a career sub-.500 record and an ERA close to 5. Fifty-two million for that? Nah.

TV gun said that it got up to 94 on the last pitch after sitting at 92-93 all inning.

Cause for concern?

If Gomes pitches 4 2/3 scoreless and is leading 8-0 when it starts raining, and is replaced after the delay by a train of relievers who cough up 7 runs, one of THEM gets the win.

But that’s probably an argument for another site…

In the first 2 at bats, Pedro looked like he’d never seen a curve ball before or more precisely like he couldn’t recognize one even if he should expect it on the next pitch. Any idea what scouts say about his current problems? Or about Neil Walker’s often fruitless efforts this season? Has he lost bat speed? Has he lost the power of pitch recognition?

If he doesn’t, and his team is leading after 5, and thereafter continues to lead, the pitcher who finished the 5th is almost always credited as the winning pitcher. (I think there is an option to designate the most worthy relief pitcher after the 5th as the pitcher of record, but I don’t recall the last time that was used.)
