If all it took was cleaning out a bit of scar tissue in his shoulder, damn! He is looking good. Two words bother me though...Scott Boras.

Rodon is a fucking machine right now.  8th consecutive quality start.  That's impressive coming off of a shoulder surgery.

And after a shaky start, he settled in nicely.

I've noticed that since his return, he comes out of the chute firing at 90-91 mph on the fastball and as he warms up and gets a bit into the game, that gets up to 95-96 and then he's basically unhittable.

Ninth quality start in a row.  This guy is really going well right now.

They ran some stats I did not get written down.  FIRST TIME SINCE 1908?!?!?!?!?!?

Might have been Consecutive Games with at least six IP, no more than 5 Hits nor more than 3 Runs.  I need to look for the article.  With all the great pitching we saw in the hard to hit 50's and 60's, amazing this had not been done before.

My mental faculties are failing quickly.  I wish I could remember simple things like this.  Hoping to get results from an EEG this afternoon by tomorrow or Wednesday.  I was advised to proceed to the ER after taking a battery of questions, but I declined.  I just want to know what the heck is going on.

I think I did record the pieces correctly.  This matches the streak with adding one game on for tonight.  Walks a bit of a concern, but HRs are way, way down.  WOW!!!
