Look, I love going to games at Progressive Field. Nice park, friendly people. But when I was there for Opening Day I saw their new concession, the chicken and waffle sandwich. I could have had one for free too. I declined. From the looks of NESN’s Heidi Watney’s experience with this beast this afternoon, I was right to do so:
Lyles, 29, split last season between the Pirates and Brewers, performing much better with the latter. Overall, he compiled a 4.15 ERA with a 146 strikeouts and 55 walks across 141 innings. It was a return to full-time starting for Lyles, who had performed mostly as a reliever from 2016-18.
