Richards is AWESOME


Recommended Posts

`

It was a great performance.

@Alden_Gonzalez: Garrett Richards is the first #Angels pitcher to strike out three batters with nine pitches in one inning since at least 1974, per STATS.

@Alden_Gonzalez: Actually, in all of #Angels history, the only pitcher to do that (3 K's, 9 pitches, 1 inning) was Nolan Ryan on July 9, 1972.

Crazy. They just ran an article/headline about someone pitching a perfect innng yesterday.

Garrett is lightining in a bottle.

 

The Angels pitching staff, as a whole, suffer from control problems, innefficency, high BB rates, etc.., but Garrett Richards is the exception.

 

His ability to throw strikes is rembarkable, and his durability–or rather, ability, to pitch through the 7th or 8th sets him apart from anyone on the Angels pitching staff–hell, he looks like an All Star pitcher.

 

The fact that he doesn't cost $100M or whatever pitchers make, makes him even more valuable in my eyes.

@JeffFletcherOCR: It took Garrett Richards 86 pitches, into 7th inning, to throw as many balls (21) as he threw in the first inning in his last start. #Angels

@JeffFletcherOCR: Richards:74.7% strikes tonight. 2nd Angels P (Skaggs, 5/20) to crack 70 this year. Twice all of '13. (minimum 6 IP) http://t.co/IDpP1FDf9Z

Cool, I'm surprised Chuck Finley never did it with his great stuff . He's the only pitcher in mlb history to strike out 4 batters in an inning 3 separate times. AJ Burnett is the only other pitcher who even did it twice.

Great start tonight.  To come out and do what he did after his last outing is impressive not just from a stuff standpoint, but from a mental one as well. 

you could tell he was on it, the look of determination he had on his face, he was NOT going to let that happen again
