Yah, it was a good game for him, but as I said before, he *should* do fine against Cincy given the matchup, if he's going to continue improving. I was actually surprised to see Lopez go 3-for-4 against him though -- and he added a HR w/ a BB so far today. Maybe this will be a good sign for Lopez going forward too.


Cincy is one of the best hitting teams in MLB. GAB is a great hitter's park.


Yes, that's true overall. But they are a lefty heavy team. And Lowry's a LHP who's been doing significantly better against lefties.

While it's also true that the Cincy splits vs RHPs and LHPs don't show much diff, I do also suspect that the large majority of LHPs in the NL probably suck outside of D-Train, Duke and a couple others. I say this because there are a few other lefty heavy NL teams that seem to do great against LHPs (ie. better than against RHPs in some cases). Actually, come to think of it, Lowry was probably one of those bad LHPs until the past month or so. :D


I hear your logic. But... :-D Lowry's not as tough against lefties as most southpaws. For his brief MLB career, he does better against righties for some odd reason. Probably has to do with his pitching style more than anything else:

That being said, this makes his outing in Cincy even more impressive. There is a chance he will have a few off games but you can't really argue with the numbers he's put up since the AS Break. I'm a fan. ;-D

As I am...this guy has been good to me for these past few starts.

Ummm yeah. Lowry should not be sitting on waivers right now or something.

I think I have to give a shout out to Kearns about being the best pickup right now. He's been awesome since the break and playing pretty much every day.

Mike Jacobs for some deeper leagues or NL only leauges maybe if your short on hitting possibly.

And Bengie Molina if your in need of a catcher.

Matt Cain. He has electric stuff, was the second best pitching prospect behind King Felix, and gets to face the weak NL West the rest of the year. The only problem would be that he may be starting only every other turn in the rotation :-o to keep his IP down, but I'd keep an eye on him.
