  • Jose Fernandez

    This guy sure has a pretty amazing story. He's been jailed, shot at and escaped from Cuba by boat. He's a pretty tough kid for being only 20 years old. He sure pitched a nice game in his debut too.

    Fernandez had an Extremely impressive debut with 8K in 5 IP. My Only question is why his manager didn't let him pitch deeper into the game. He's just 20 and will turn 21 on July 31. He appears to have a very bright future.

      They have him at a 150+160 innings cap and for his debut game they had him at 75-85 pitches. I'm sure he'll have some ups and downs but he has some nice upside.

        One of THE top pitching prospects in the game (yeah, I know TINSTAAPP) and hadn't yet been above A-ball. These kids are major commodities anymore and are treated as such. I had no problem with what the Marlins did in taking him out. He's got a bright future.

          Not sure if Fernandez pitched well or faced bad Mets lineup.

          Also, I bet the Marlins will trade the guy for prospects before he hits arbitration.
          The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

            He faced a pretty good heavy left handed Phillies lineup and pitched another great game. 6 innings, 5 strikeouts, 2 hits, 0 earned runs.

              I think this kid will be getting a long term deal soon since he's Miami's Cuban native son.

                This is his second major league game. Wait until other teams have seen him and adapt to Fernandez.

                  I'm sure he's going to have some bad games but he has some electrifying stuff. I'm thinking he has a Fernando Valenzuela type of rookie year.

                    The Marlins? No way.

                      This might be a fun matchup tonight. Tony Cingrani vs Jose Fernandez.

                          He did have a bad start his last time out but I think he's going to come back strong his next outing. He seemed a little rattled in that last game but I don't think he's going to carry that over into his next game.

                          He was pitching better than Cingrani until the 4th or 5th inning when everything fell apart on him. He's pitched around 17 innings and I would say he's had 1 maybe 2 bad innings

                            I have issues with the Marlins.

                              I don't know what to think of him now after his last game. I guess we won't be seeing the next Dwight Gooden or Fernando Valenzuela. I do think he's going to have a nice bounce back game this weekend though. Mainly because I dropped him from most of my fantasy leagues.
