Aaron Nola’s Rocky Start
Prediction: Nola would rebound from a poor spring.
I nailed this one for the most part. Nola was coming off his fourth consecutive poor outing of the spring and all the sports talk stations were deluged with fans beginning to disregard the righty.
Nola has indeed rebounded and was arguably one of the best pitchers in baseball during a stretch from July to mid-August.
However, I still hold true to the fact that Nola is likely not a No. 1 pitcher on a real contender and is better suited for the role of a good No. 2 or well above-average No. 3.
