Yeah it's Bordick. I don't get it. Ben McDonald and Mike Boddicker were outstanding so we go and get mush mouth Bordick. Probably came the cheapest

 

Maybe they didn't want to fly to California.

If you take away the errors and the missed catch that went as a double he's actually been pretty decent. He looked shaky in the first but since then he has kept the ball down. He's issued only 1 walk which was intentional. It's clearly an improvement over the first two games.

Even if you take away his intentional walk, he's sitting at a healthy 2.00 WHIP for the game. He's the new Hobgood - a complete waste of a first round pick.

 

He had to get 4 outs in the first, 4 outs in the second, and 5 outs in the 4th. He may not ever amount to much but even a great pitcher can have a tough time overcoming all that.

I don't think Matusz pitched terrible considering the defense behind him was absolutely abysmal. His command was much better than his last two starts. He did throw his fastball way too much though, especially in the beginning.
