Nolasco moves into a three-way tie for the most home runs given up so far this season... and the game's just getting started!!!

Honestly, I'd rather take a few more walks at this point than just stubbornly throwing strikes and giving up the long ball so often.

He has a 5-1 lead and only needs 2 more IP for the potential win. I'm holding my breath..... :-o

Well I sat him today vs the Mets for obvious reasons... wish I started him now, even though he gave up 3 ER...
9 Ks, 0 BBs, 7 IPs, 1 W helps the rest of the stat line out... something i wished to see him do all season long lol.... o well, good thing only monday, i can still make up for this the rest of the week(hopefully)

hopefully he continues to pitch this well throughout the season... or maybe it was just the fact he was pitching in puerto rico lol

I going to keep trotting him out there. I've taken so many of his bad starts I'll be pissed if I miss one of his decent/good starts. I'll take the win and the 9 K's.

I watched most of the game, and Nolasco was really dealing, other than a couple of mistakes to Bay. The slider was biting, the curve was working, and he hit 93/94 some with the fastball which set up the change. Hopefully a sign of a turnaround.

Those who thought he'd have a good second half are enjoying being right so far. He got left in a shade too long tonight, giving up two very late runs but he held down the Padres at Petco pretty comprehensively.

If you like to use the ESPN player rater feature, then nolasco is interesting because he is ranked the 2nd highest SP so far for the 2nd half. I was kinda shocked to see that.
