And he should still be there waiting for you to pick him up if you dare to do so later ;-) .

Hey guys, Koch wasn't that bad. He had some control problems and gave up one lousy single. His velocity was there today as he was 94-96 on his fastball. No, he's no Gagne, Wagner or even as good as Graves. But he's good for some saves if you can handle the hit in ERA and WHIP. His 13 K's in 12.1 innings is pretty helpful too.

If you're going to burn someone at the stake for sucking, pick on MacDougal.

i sort of agree with this. if he had some control (i know i know, if), it would be much better, but he allowed a bloopish single, while grabbing 2 Ks and being a few close calls away from a 3rd..

Well...wasn't that bad is kind of relative. Relative to not as bad as he was last year. I am still BEGGING OZZIE that he lets Marte close.

But seriously, his movement was decent today, compared to where it was in the past. His fastball wasn't that straight. Still, he was pretty hittable. Control was all over the place, too, but he snuck some pitches in at the corners, which was nice.

Takatsu may be next in line. He sucked in ST but is looking sharp in games.

After walking one batter, I thought Koch got robbed of a third strike call on a final out -- prior to walking the other two batters and getting in a mess. His pitches actually looked and not very hittable. That said, you have to throw strikes.

I agree, after walking the first batter he struck out the next 2 and could of struck out surhoff if he had gotten the call. His stuff looked good though. To me he looks like he doesn't trust his stuff as much as he should. It seems like he is trying to hard to throw it to an exact spot, instead of just making a good pitch and letting them put it in play. In other words he tries to strike everyone out instead of pitching to contact.
