so was this the Jansen giving up the homer or Muncy getting the walk off?

Ohhh, definitely the former.

I wasn't up at the time, so really couldn't decide which it was.... Either one you could say that was a very valid response....

For sure. Not that I think you should check, but I'd guess the time stamp of my post is within a minute of Tellez's HR. Funny thing - it was a pretty good pitch. 93 mph cutter off the plate inside. Challenging pitch to hit. But it kind of doesn't matter at this point. Jansen has 6 blown saves this year so rationalizing one just feels like window dressing. He's got to be losing the faith of his teammates and manager (despite Roberts' comments last night).

The guy has relied almost exclusively on his cutter for his entire career. It's still a good pitch but it's no longer so devastating that he doesn't have to throw anything else. I know he's trying to learn how to throw the slider more often and in high leverage situations but I just don't know when/if that's going to start working.

Scherzer back and looked pretty solid tonight. 4 innings 71 pitches with 1 run(on a homer) and 3 k's. Definitely what you would want for 1st start back. Next start vs Orioles, and then it's on after that for him.
