O’s rookie pitcher, David Hernandez got alot of support in Angel Stadium last night. The crowd even chanted, “Lets go David!” Hernandez was a native of California, and had a lot of friends and family in attendance to root him on.
The O’s scored five runs in the first two times through the batting order, spotting Hernandez the lead and giving him something to work with. That was all he had needed, as Hernandez only gave up one run in five innings. “Oh I could here them,” said Hernandez. “There are alot of people in Oakland when I pitched there, but there were even more people here to root me on.”
Hernandez pitched two perfect innings on Friday, as he pitched around two singles in the third and left runners stranded in the fourth as well. Hernandez pitched into the seventh inning before coming out of the game. He had a very good outing.
Manager Dave Trembley commented saying, “He just never stopped throwing strikes. He just kept repeating his delivery and commanding his fastball.” Trembley really loved the way Hernandez changed the speeds on his breaking ball though. He thought that was very hard to catch on to.
Is it just me, or do any other O’s fans out there wanna just rip Trembley’s head off?
The O’s can never be consistant! I just have to blame that on Dave Trembley. I think that the O’s pitching is pretty decent. They have some good prospects coming out of the farm and I think they should give them the call up to the MLB for a few outings. Bergesen has been good. Very good.
If all of the O’s pitching could be like Brad Bergesen there would be no problem. But, most of the starting rotation is shaky, and the bullpen… Lord knows! And the O’s offense, wow. Brian Roberts is in one of the biggest slumps in his career, and he struck out twice last night, which he rarely does.
The thing that really makes me ticked is that Trembley is having a good old time in the dugout each game and doesn’t ever make a change about the O’s offense.
If he doesn’t turn the O’s around soon, they will find someone who will. My suggestion is
1. Talk to your guys, tell em’ to start playing a little harder.
2. Get Brian Roberts, (Your Leader) to get back to the way he normally is.
3. Get the pitching started up so that will trigger the Offense.
4. Finally, please take more action!
What a weiner.
C’mon O’s! Let’s start winning some games! Thanks for your time! Please comment. 🙂 and remember to watch tonight’s game vs. LA!
