Soroka and Fried and ... well, not good after that.
Mets have a five-run inning and a 7-2 lead. Newcomb charged with six runs in 4 1/3 innings.
Mets Game 8 of 60, @ ATL
Friday, July 31, 7:10 p.m.
LHP Sean Newcomb (0-0, 2.70)
J.D. Davis LF
Porcello RHP (0-1, 27.00)
Sean Newcomb taking the mound for his second start of the 2020 season.
Newcomb isn’t great but he won’t kill you. Jhoulys Chacin in the biggest spot of the game with 6+ very competent other relievers will, however, kill you
Jhoulys Chacin has just walked in a run. Yeah, Newcomb's out of the game as well. This has gotten out of hand in a hurry, which has been a trend when it comes to Braves starters not named Mike Soroka and Max Fried
I really want Newcomb to succeed as a starter. I really do.
Correction: In six starts over the past two seasons, Sean Newcomb has allowed 27 hits, 15 runs (13 earned) and 13 walks with 13 strikeouts in 22 2/3 innings. He has a 5.16 ERA in those games and no decisions before tonight.
So that fell apart for #Newcomb
Trust 1 and 2 and no one else right now.
Newcomb and Wright seem to have the same “it’s going awesome or awful with no in between” thing going which is tremendous for Twitter content but not so much for successful baseballing
Thank you Sean Newcomb for bending me over with no lube on the first date without even buying me dinner first.
The problem isn’t Newcomb not being good enough as a starter. We’ve known that.
It’s going to Chacin in the most high-leverage moment of the game. Ya know, the guy that was cut by another team, like, two weeks ago.
I can’t believe Newcomb gave up 6 runs 🤦🏻♂️ Geezus!
And still they keep starting Newcomb. Enough is enough. Move on. He isn't a starter.
Time to drop chacin and put newcomb in the pen... bring up Davidson, Anderson, or weigel
Newcomb is blowing a prime opportunity. If the #Braves let him go too, I won't be upset at all.
That trade that sent Simmons to L.A. will always stink in my mind.
What in the hell is wrong with Newcomb? If a pitcher gives up 3 runs (let alone 6) I would pull his ass so fast he’d forget his own name. #braves
They had handed a rotation spot to Newcomb before Hamels fell apart.
Newcomb started, Chacin came in in relief
Maybe the #Braves should do to Newcomb what they did to Foltynewicz. He's not been much better than Folty was.
So Newcomb let’s in a few runs and they take him out. They bring in Chacin and let him stay in after the Mets bring in 6 plus runs, possibly more, and still don’t pull him? When did starters start having shorter leashes than relievers? #Braves
Chacin to Pluto, Newcomb to pen, young arm to rotation.
Agreed you already know what you got in Newcomb who is a much better relief. And Chacin needs to be gone as well.
Davis, Cano both homered. Newcomb was taken out and the reliever walked two guys. Cespedes knocked in some runs. It was a mess.
not sold on Newcomb as a starter #ATLvsNYM #ForTheA
