Open Thread: Uehara & Kawakami Begin Their MLB Careers

» 16 April 2009 » In mlb »

Both Koji Uehara and Kenshin Kawakami have made their first MLB starts. Each had a solid debut game, but regressed in game two. Being on the west coast, I didn’t see more than ESPN highlights of any of the games (and I haven’t seen anything from Kawakami’s game today).

So to those of you who saw the game, what are your thoughts?

    I watched Kawakami’s start. He pitched well. Apart from the 3 run homer he didn’t make any terrible pitches. He wasn’t locating his fastball like I know he can, so I expect improvement. He was pretty good though. His curveball remains unhittable.
