What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
So I went to the Express game last night and finally got to see Martin Perez in action. He looked to have some pretty killer stuff - good pop on his fastball and was able to keep them off-balance with his offspeed stuff. However, he really didn't command the game all that well. Even though he only gave up 4 hits and 2 runs in 5 2/3, he had 5 walks and seemed to keep getting himself into trouble.
On the other hand, Valdez and Scheppers came in and were pretty much lights out. Both of them pounded the strike zone in the mid to upper 90's and really just looked overpowering.
Anyone else seen more of the same or have any other thoughts?
I was there last night as well and you are right, Perez has filthy stuff but he was lacking a little command. Valdez (where'd he come from?) was gassing fools. I didn't stick around for extras so I didn't see Scheppers.
