We here at omgreds are sensing a hot new trend in blowouts: having a random dude pitch the late innings. It’s already happened a couple of times this year. Nick Swisher came into the 9th during a messy game against the Rays (he fared best – a scoreless frame and one strikeout) and Jonathan Van Every took the mound for the Red Sox also after being crushed by the Rays. He, like Janish, did not fare as well. Such trendsetters in Boston. Are the Reds just being copycats? We’ll know for sure if Willie Taveres tries to steal home later this month.
