Chris Tillman needs his head examined today. I mean countless meatballs at the plate and all up in the zone. He is shorting himself and wondering if he is tight. I am shocked that it is only 6-0 at this point. Once this staff is healthy, he needs to be looked at in a long light.
He needs to stretch out the arm with long tosses and really work after games to keep his trunk and core strong. These pre-game routines have to be a bit more exhaustive,if he is coming out cold all the time. Work some sweat is going to help.
I just see no fire in him on the mound. While I like the fact that he is dedicated to stay in command of his pitches, you do not want to do so in order to pull back on your stuff. Sometimes nasty can be a good thing for a starting pitcher.
