Game 137 Preview: Romero v. Colon

Is that a change up or a 4 seamer?

On July 27st, Ricky Romero pitched into the 9th inning against the Orioles, shutting them out while holding them to 4 hits.

He followed that with 8 inning, one hit, one run against the Rays. Then 8 innings against Baltimore, again 4 hits and no runs. Then 7 innings, 2 hits, 1 run against Anaheim. Then a 3-hit complete game shutout against Oakland. He struck out 6.75 hitters per nine innings in that stretch, and he was the hottest pitcher in baseball.

His last two outings have been more pedestrian: both 6 inning stints, both 3ER, both more walks than Ks, with more hits than innings pitched.

Let's hope he get that pedestrian Ricky today, that we grind out long ABs and drive up his pitch count. Because if he's on, he can be the most unhittable pitcher in the East.

Bartolo Colon has been allowing a ton of hits, but he's still pounding the strike zone. He hasn't won a game since July, and I'm sure he'd like to get his win-loss record back to .500.
