Cleveland Guardians Split Series with Houston Astros: Franmil Reyes Cut? Triston McKenzie is Amazing
Manage episode 336989191 series 2497705
- It was a very busy weekend for the Cleveland Guardians who split the four-game series with the Houston Astros despite not having one of their best starters set up to go. I was told all week this team could not compete with the Astros but in the end, they did. We talk about the brilliance of Emmanuel Clase. The utter dominance of Triston McKenzie. We also discussed Hunter Gaddis, the 13th Guardian to make their debut this year, and the pitcher I hoped would get the call on Friday. I explain why I think he is a future 10-year player in the majors.
- We quickly talk about the three games of the week before focusing on Sunday and the performances there. Triston McKenzie after his struggles in June has elevated into a legit front-line starter. Was I the only one that was sad that Steven Kwan got pinch hit and saw his streak end on Friday? We also talk about why Jake Jewell was added to the roster and why he is likely to have a very short stay on the 40-man.
- We end by first discussing where the standings have the Guardians both in the division and the Wild Card. The Guardians still have a better chance at the division than the Wild Card. Then of course we get into Franmil Reyes. We talk about what has occurred over the last three years which might have made the organization decide to move on from what this team needs: a power hitter from the right side with multiple years of control. This was not a result of just one bad year, this team loves to buy low on players so there is more going on. We try to explain why this shocker occurred, what it means, and why it was likely best for everyone.
