That sinker is filthy....Guys swing over the top of it and it looks like a splitter or some sort of breaking ball but then you look up at the gun and the velocity is in the mid-90s....It's crazy.

Chone Figgins is 2b/3b/of eligible, it doesn't help when Sciosa gives him a day off?

He hadn't worked in a couple of days. I'm assuming he's still safe.

Well if you're that skeptical, drop him then, you're complaining about one bad inning after he has been lights out since his conversion from starter to reliever. He hasn't been used in over 5 days, I'm sure he had a bit of rust but it was his fault today walking a few guys leading to the hits he gave up. All you guys act like whatever others say on here is the holy grail and pimping a certain player means that player will perform night in and night out b/c so and so said they would. He'll have his share of lumps b/c he is a young pitcher, but I'm not dropping him or changing my outlook on him b/c of this game.

many "closers" don't work for a couple of days

maybe he's not a closer

I don't believe that was a save situation. Even if it was he's human and will have bad games.
