Crawdad Chronicles 46.02 - Jim's Arm is "Not-so" Strong

What a difference a year makes.

What happened to Jim Armstrong? 2 years ago he had a 2.78 ERA, and 12.7 K/9 a quality start percentage of 71% and 5 war.

In 2046 that blossomed to 6.30 ERA, 8.0 K/9 and 27% QS and 0.1 WAR. Ouch.

It has gotten so bad that New Orleans has totally upended their rotation and sent their (formerly) #1 pitcher to the bullpen. Maybe thats his best spot now. In 4 bullpen appearances he has pitched 3.2 innings and allowed just 2 hits and 5 strikeouts.

Replacing him in the starting rotation is CL Renato Lacerda - who has over 250 Saves in his career - but also isnt a bad starter on paper (except for a pesky hanging changeup) In his first career start he pitched 7.1 innings, allowing 7 hits and 2 runs.

Unconventional for sure...but if this short term trend continues, it could bode well for New Orleans the rest of the way - although they have significant ground to gain as they are 17 games behind Montreal in the JL ATL and 9.5 games out of the Wild Card

His last few outings have been much better. Hoping for a mid 4 era by the end of the year. That will make me feel like I’m getting some value for him.
