Doh...looks like rain is going to send him to the bench...hope its not delayed long enough to prevent him from getting through five with this lead. Looks like he is having a little control problem tho with the wet ball, just gave up back-to-back HR maybe the game will get canceled and will wipe this start away....why couldn't they have called it when it started raining....have to think throwing a soaked ball like that is tough.
He's had 5 good starts, 1 bad one...dropping him makes a lot of sense, especially with A-Puj en fuego again. And not to make excuses but if you were watching the game, the rain did seem to have a lot to do with it, if you are a guy who realizes on your location to get guys out and you are having trouble gripping the ball, that can't help. I still think he can be a solid 4-5 starter for any fantasy squad.
it looks like he may have been 'duncanized'. reyes throws a good 4 seam fastball with life but occasionally leaves it up in the zone which results in fly outs and the occasional homer. pitching coach dave duncan basically forces everyone to throw sinking two seamers to try to get ground ball outs. reyes really struggles with the two seamer but tony and dave duncan apparently decided it would be best for reyes to regularly throw his 4th or 5th best pitch instead of his regular stuff.
