The Diamondbacks pulled another off season brain fart and spent $85 million to get over-the-hill slow throwing has been Madison Baumgardner. He can't break 88 with his Fastball while just about every other starter in the majors throws 91+ and many 95+. At 88mph he is non-competitive and is getting shelled every time he takes the mound. They need to sit him until he builds his arm strength up. What a stupid acquisition. The Padres just launched two homers off of him in the first inning today. They better have a quick hook on him today.

Baumgartner beat my Bucs in a one&done playoff in 2014. He looked like Cy Fucking Young.

Boo.

Oh yeah 5 or 6 years ago he was the Man. I don't know if he has an injury or what, but he's got a batting practice fastball right now.

Pitch speed ain't everything.

That's true, but unless you are total junkballer, you have to have at least low 90s on your fast ball. They are just teeing off on him this year.

So just today the Dbacks put MadBum on the DL for a "back strain". That is code for 'You are sucking balls, take a seat'. :thup:
