Miles Mikolas is 0-1 with a 12.46 ERA, or as the rest of baseball calls him, a Texas Rangers starter. He has not pitched as badly as his stats indicate, but he has not pitched well either. Miles Mikolas was not expected to be at this level this season, kind of like Rougned Odor, Nick Tepesch, Nick Martinez, Michael Choice, and Jake Smolinski among others. All I am saying is that if you had high expectations for Miles Mikolas, you have been highly disappointed.
at the train wreck that is the Rangers organization right now, but that is not what I am going to do. I am looking for improvement from Mikolas, Odor, and some of the other young players that are on this club right now. If Mikolas can go 5 to 6 innings, give up three or less earned runs, and keep the Texas Rangers in the ballgame, then I will consider the game a success, much like I did last nights contest. If Odor gets a bunt down or Miles Mikolas gets out of a jam, that is improvement, and that is now what the 2014 Texas Rangers are all about.
We can no longer expect victory every time out, so we have to count on improvement. If that improvement comes each night, the wins will follow, trust me, I have watched enough baseball to know that. I am excited to see Miles Mikolas pitch again tonight, because I think he will improve off of his last start. And if he doesn’t, well it will be no different than the 20 of the last 23 nights. Let’s Go Rangers!
