they added a starter by trading nothing.
The good thing is Hill has experience in the playoffs and as a guy that can come out of the bullpen. If we go into the playoffs healthy he can just move right into that second lefty role with Loup which will be pretty valuable. That Jon Neise role that he played in the post season.
Didn't really give up anything outside of a defensive catcher that at best projects as a backup in the majors.
we should wait and see since hill used the sticky stuff
as did stroman and walker (who havenâ€™t been good recently)
I think most pitchers used something. I think Scherzer used stuff too but I would trade for him if the deal was reasonable.
Its all about how the adjust to not being able to use anything. Stroman did look really good last outing vs a pretty solid lineup in CIN. So hopefully he builds on that today. Walker has been bad recently hopefully its just a blip.
Hill looked really good thru 5 inning where he kinda max's out vs onne the best right handed hitting lineups in the league. I think he will be fine as well.
But I would be a vast majority of pitchers were using something whether that is sunscreen + rosin or whatever but guys just need to re-adjust. Not everyone was using SpiderTack
