    Humphreys had an impressive outing.

    Binghamton just can’t get a game in. Also, Knapp is doing pretty much you would expect in the PCL. Pitching to contact, giving up a lot of hits, but still limiting runs.

  • Rocky Thompson

    End up pitching 6 innings and yielding only one run.

  • SynderGOD

    He gave up 7 hits in 6 innings yesterday. Thats not “a lot” by anyone’s standards, especially when he walked only one. It seems like you’ve pre-judged him based on what he did last year, rather than looking at what he actually did last night. He’s had ONE start this year. Its far, FAR too early to label, characterize, or judge what he “is doing” this year.

  • danielm – LGM

    Few things:
    First of all, when I wrote the comment he had given up 7 hits and was not done with the 5th, yet. 7 hits in 4.2 innings is a lot, by everyone’s standard, but as I said, expected in the PCL.
    Secondly, you’re misinterpreting what I said. It wasn’t a criticism of Knapp. If anything, it was a compliment. He’s a contact pitcher in the PCL, so you know that he’s going to give up a lot more hits than he would in a more neutral environment. Based on what I saw saw last year, I felt that he could limit runs, even if he’s going to give up more than a hit an inning and not K many batters. That’s what he did yesterday. I’m a big fan of Knapp, personally
