  1. Steve Novosel

    Terahara actually managed to look WORSE than Greisinger, who gave up 7 on 9 hits in 2 IP.

    Terahara threw something like 9 consecutive balls at one point. It’s sad we couldn’t score more than 7 off of him.

  2. Nathan

    I knew these pitchers are due for regression and what a start it was. I didn’t expect both to get overhauled like this, but expect shitty games especially from Greisinger in the second half of the season!

    1. Steve Novosel

      Why? Greisinger’s pitched all year like he has in previous years except when he’s injured.

      You probably didn’t watch the game but it was raining steadily all game, especially the first few innings, so both pitchers had big problems with control (due to grip and poor mound condition). That’s all this was.

    2. Nathan

      I was aware of the weather condition buddy. I didn’t watch the ENTIRE game, but there was no need after watching the fist a few.

      “Greisinger’s pitched all year like he has in previous years except when he’s injured.” His previous years? Compare his stats buddy (years past with the Giants or the Swallows). He’s due for major regression and he has been in his past starts. I can tell you’re a Lotte fan, but jeez. I will be astounded if the guy finishes with less than 2.50 ERA, but who knows.

    3. Steve Novosel

      What do you mean by “major regression”? Other than ERA his stats are in line with his salad says in Tokyo. And ERA is easily explained by league ERA being markedly depressed due to the new ball, not to mention QVC is the worst hitters park in Japan.

      And as far as his recent starts, what exactly have you seen in his last 5 starts that was so bad? Here they are:

      7/6 2IP, 7 ER, 9H, 0K. We know this one.
      6/29 6IP, 1 ER, 5H, 5K. Only run on solo HR.
      6/22 7IP, 3 ER, 9H, 4K. Not great.
      6/13 7 1/3IP, 2 ER, 5H, 5K.
      6/6 6 2/3IP, 0ER, 5H, 4K.

      So 3 solid outings, one mediocre, one horrid (again, in the rain). Pretty clear that the game last night is likely an aberration due to the weather.

    4. Nathan

      Last 5 games are the indication of regression. He was pitching superbly before then. Inhumane-alike (which is possible in NPB).

      Again, I will be shocked if he keeps his ERA under 2.50. Simply put, all I am saying is that he has over-acheived thus far into the season. Is QVC really the worst HITTERS park in Japan? ;)

    5. Steve Novosel

      He’s still pitching superbly, last night excepted. He’s only had two other ‘bad’ outings on the year.

      Yes, it’s absolutely the worst hitter’s park. 0.74 park factor last year, I think.

      This year Lotte’s been about even on the road/home splits, though – higher HR/OPS at home, higher BA on the road.

    6. fighting ham

      I tell you what, I think the powers that be changed the baseball. I mean the physical game ball. I am completely serious.

      Maybe only in weekends. The way the ball jumps off the bat is really different now.

    7. Steve Novosel

      I wouldn’t be surprised. Offense seems to be way up everywhere as of late. Only 6 pitchers left with ERAs under 2.

  3. Blacklabel

    I was thinking the same thing. That ball they used yesterday sure doesnt seem like the same ball.
