Jimmy Gobble taken out!!

Postby DaveFer » Fri Apr 09, 2004 10:24 pm

i'd like to know why he was taken out after a superb performance:

6.0 IP 1H, 2BB, 2SO

AND ONLY 74 PITCHES!!!!!!

i'd understand takin him out if he had thrown 95 or more pitches but he only has 74 and he was doin great... i expect that this doesnt happen too often cause this kid gots talent for real

Man, what next, RJ getting pulled in the 4th inning of a shut-out?

He got pulled because he is Jimmy damn Gobble.

Here is what Rotoworld says about it.

Jimmy Gobble limited the Indians to one hit in six shutout innings tonight.
Gobble, who missed time with a strained oblique last month, didn't figure to throw more than five innings tonight, but he was very efficient, needing just 74 pitches to get through six. Unfortunately, that wasn't quite enough to get him him a win, as the Royals didn't score until the bottom of the seventh.



Shouldn't have been too big of a surprise to his owners. An astute owner would have been aware of his status and half expected this.
