Chen on his outing

Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen got roughed up for six earned runs on 10 hits over 3 2/3 innings against the Rays this afternoon. Chen also struck out six and didn’t issue a walk. Here’s what he had to say through his interpreter.

“I felt very good overall,” he said. “Some of the pitches were up so they squared them up. Other than that I felt pretty good.”

“I didn’t think about getting swings and misses, but I got more swings and misses with my fastball. I am happy about that. And I’m also happy about not issuing any walks. So overall it was pretty good.”

Chen surrendered five of his runs in the third and fourth innings and said he didn’t lose rhythm at all, he just allowed more hits. Coming off a season in which he missed about two months with an oblique strain and had minor knee surgery this winter, Chen said health is his number one goal and he also would like to pitch more innings.

As for how much the knee hampered his second half, Chen said, “I can’t say that it didn’t affect me but I don’t know actually how much. But for this year I already got it taken care of and I’m going to concentrate on this season and I am going to ready for the season,. And I am not going to think about the knee anymore.”

I think that what you posted made a great deal of sense. But, what about this? what if you typed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Chen on his outing Britt’s Bird Watch is a little plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news titles to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.
