Oh, Riske why?

Postby Dude86 » Thu Apr 15, 2004 9:36 pm

Another inning pitched for Riske, another earned run, I'm starting to think that this guy is the worst pitcher in all of baseball. Has he had an appearance this season where he didn't give up an earned run yet? This guy is absolutely pathetic.

Someone had posted something about a week ago saying that Riske's newborn baby had birth defects - more specific, had some sort of kindey problems. Last I had heard, the baby was still in the hospital, I was wondering if anyone can confirm this? I would imagine that Riske is not totally focused on baseball at the moment.

On a side note, Chad Durbin was warming up in the bullpen to relieve Riske, granted, it was a non-save situation...but keep your eyes on him too.

Can't imagine why Cleveland would send their closer out down 3-0.

To keep his arm fresh. You dont want to send a guy out cold in a save situation when he hasnt pitched in over a week.

Here is why he was getting some work tonight. It's from rototimes

Usually, David Riske (P) Cle has a fastball in the 90-92 mph range, but it hasn't been getting much higher than 86-89 mph lately, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. He said he needs to get his energy up and pitch 'mad.' Indians manager Eric Wedge said he felt Riske's velocity was down simply because it's early in the season. "I look for him to get stronger every outing," Wedge added.

well, he can gain his energy while sitting on my bench for a few more games :-B I do think he will pull it together, and will start pulling in the saves, so I don't think anyone should drop him.
