Tonight’s guest: Xavier Cedeno of the Houston Astros. Everyone knows the Astros are not really trying to win this year so I try to cut them some slack, but this made Carlos Marmol look like Nolan Ryan. At least Marmol got some people out. Cedeno has only pitched 30 some innings in the majors and he’s going to wish he could start over after tonight. Cedeno allowed 6 runs and did not get a batter out. Most of the harm came from walking 3 batters. The bright side is that he did only give up 1 hit. Silver lining kids!
Cedeno left the game tonight with a hardy 108.00 ERA for the season. Cedeno is a young kid so he won’t get quite the shit that Heath Bell and Marmol got. He’ll shake it off and be out there another day. I think it will be a while before we see another 6 run, 0 out performance so we’ll have to wait for another blown save by some tossed around closer.
