Sully Baseball Podcast – Talking Braves stadium and Angels team that should have won – April 20, 2017
One of my most devoted listeners asked me a question.
@sullybaseball thoughts on the new braves stadium?

The Braves new stadium seems nice but kind of what they already had. Meanwhile I discuss the Angels team that should have won.
Travelling down the state of California on this episode of Sully Baseball.
After Jordan Zimmermann’s shaky outing last night, and it is still too early to tell, but I’m starting to get concerned that Zim’s contract may be one of the worst in baseball history.
Entering his second year of a 5-year $110MM contract and making $18MM this year ($24MM in ’18, $25MM in ’19 & ’20), it’s safe to say that the season isn’t getting off to Jordan’s liking after an injury filled 2016 campaign. After the Tigers offense saved Zimmermann from taking the loss last night (ultimately coughing the game up), he still had his second poor performance in as many outings, giving up 5 earned on 10 hits to the Rays. This follows up a 4.2 inning outing against Minnesota where he also game up 5 earned on hits and 5 walks. The start of the season against Boston gave plenty of hope to fans, but remember, that was against a flu-ridden Red Sox lineup. Through the three starts, Zimmermann has a 5.94 ERA, has given up 18 hits in 16.2 innings, while walking 7, and striking out 10, and has a -0.3 WAR.
Jhoulys Chacin pitched 8 innings of 3 hit shutout ball, striking out 5 Arizona batters and getting the 1-0 win in San Diego.
Bryce Harper reached base 5 times, homered twice and drive in 5 to help the Nationals clobber Atlanta, 14-4.
Jason Vargas struck out 9 Giants in 7 innings, allowing 4 walks, no runs and 4 hits as the Royals finished the 2-0 shutout.
Mitch Haniger got on 4 times, scored 3 times and drove in 4 as Seattle beat Miami, 10-5.
