To wait one more week to see if he is for realsie reals. I have no idea what to expect from this perennial underachiever. Currently he is 0-0 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. His K/BB ratio is pretty poor at 7/6 however. I think tonight is the perfect test. Houston is about league average offensively (maybe a bit worse) and is the type of team I want my Adam Eaton to succeed against.
If he gets lit up by the Mets or Braves, I can deal with that because I don't expect him to be able to beat those teams. It is the Houston Astros, the LA Dodgers and the Cincinatti Reds that I want him to succeed against. And if he can throw in a win against an upper tier team, then all the better.
I actually expect another decent game from Eaton.
