      I think it all depends on what you were expecting.

      Based on his games in college and how he did during the spring, my expectation were a bit tapered so I actually saw this as a fairly decent outing.

      It’ll be interesting to see what kind of adjustments he makes for his next start.

  1. Blacklabel

    anything short of a perfect game and he wouldn’t have been able to equal the hype. To me, Sawamura from Giants and Fukui from Carp both looked better this week than he did. But I am sure he will improve as he gets more starts.

    1. Kyle

      I didn’t see the Sawamura start, but Fukui looked great; all the better versus the likes of Dicky Gonzalez! Randomly, what the heck happened to him? He was great one year, and then not so much.
