Sports Talk with Brodes: Zack Wheeler Grinds Out 86 Pitches vs Orioles
The Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Baltimore Orioles in an exhibition game. Zack Wheeler threw 86 pitches in 4.1 innings. There is no doubt his breaking ball can be dominant, but he lost his command towards the end.
This shouldn't have to be stressed too much... It was ONLY an exhibition game. So there is no need to say his contract isn't worth it or that he isn't good. Let's relax. The offense was not able to click for any type of run support.
In terms of the broadcast, the fake crowd noise is definitely needed. The empty stadium seats do not bother me although I can understand why that is an eye sore to some.
