Proof Adam Conley Can Be Consistent?
The knock on Adam Conley during his still relatively brief stint with the Marlins has been his inconsistency, whether it be going through hot and cold streaks on the mound, or even from inning to inning. Even when he’s having a relatively good night, it often takes a ridiculous amount of pitches to achieve those results.
Conley has had this problem for a while and attempted to address it for quite some time last year. Conley pitched a decent five frames of work in his first outing. But, he will have to find a way to extend that a bit to help out the bullpen.
In all cases, the Miami Marlins need some steadiness from their most talented starting pitcher.
If he can match or improve upon his last effort against the Mets, his start might be the must-watch game of the series. His opponent? Thor himself.
Mets win in a blowout or Marlins win close would seem to be the only outcomes in that one. But again, that’s the perception Conley needs to change in 2017.
