What has gotten into these pitchers? Did Braden sell his soul to the devil? Is Moyer a superhuman clone? Can Cueto shift time and space around him? This last week we had 3 complete game shutouts and 3 8-inning shutouts. The real question is: Who’s LEGIT and who’s gonna QUIT?
Dallas Braden 9 IP 0H 6K Braden made history with the 19th perfect game. He's joined some of baseball's greats on that list. Dallas has a big heart and some decent skills. Decision: SPLIT
Johnny Cueto 9 IP 1H 8K 1 Hit. 1 Damn Hit. So close to perfection…then again, it was against the Pirates. Cueto has a career of ups and downs. Who the hell knows what you will get the next game. Decision: QUIT
Jamie Moyer 9 IP 2H 5K As if things couldn’t get worse for Atlanta, an old crotchety man name Moyer comes and whoops you. Love the story, but its a one time deal. Decision: QUIT
Mat Latos 8 IP 2H 9K Latos has pitched 2 gems so far this year on the surprisingly hot Padres. Can the Padres keep it all season? Probably not, but Latos will perform while the team is jiving. Decision: SPLIT UPDATE: Latos just threw a complete game 1 hitter, giving him 17 IP 3H 15K in the past two games. He certainly is making a case for the LEGIT list.
Clayton Kershaw 8 IP 2H 9K Take away Kershaw’s 1 inning 7 run explosive diarrhea game against Milwaukee and he is having a pretty decent start to the season. 200Ks here we come. Decision: LEGIT
Tommy Hanson 8 IP 4H 8K This guy is the real deal. The future of the Braves is Hanson & Heyward. He should come close to 200Ks as well. Decision: LEGIT
