Great pitching by Humber, but make no mistake about it--he is an average arm who faced an undisciplined hitting team.
I pointed this out in another thread, when they had King Felix the other night, they made Timlon look better than he was also. They swung at the first pitch in the later innings not once, but EVERY batter except Figgins. Just taking 3 called strikes would have been better for Seattle, all the way to the 7th inning, then swing at hittable pitches. It expends energy to strike hitters out.
This was not all Humber--it was all Seattle.
You have a million dollar pitcher in Felix--a lockdown starter, and he gets outdueled by an average arm.
Wouldnt be surprised if we see a few more shutouts on the M's by anyone who throws strikes with location, especially the next few days. FADE
I would also fade Humber in his next start.
