Was the gun right when it flashed the pitch he hit at 101?

Welsh has been saying for the whole series that the guns are wrong. Don't know which, but he says the Fox gun and the Shea gun differ by 5-8 mph

How fast did his head turn when BP got that base hit? ;)

I saw the replay if it on ESPN and it flashed 91 on theirs. But, by judging on Coffey's fastballs, it seemed in line with what he has been getting all year. Also, Hammonds 55 MPH pitch still reads 55 MPH.

It's embarassing when the ball leaves twice as fast as it comes in. :rolleyes:

101 MPH by Mays? Hammonds? Standridge? Coffey?

Sorry... I wasn't watching the game. :doh:

I'd assume they're talking about Wagner.

Just watched the replay on MLB.TV, and the Mets TV gun had it clocked at 98. Hitting a 98 mph high fastball is no easy task.

I was watching the game and Wagner was hitting anywhere from 96-99mph on his fastball. He's got such nasty stuff I don't even think he knows where it is going sometimes.

That was the speed of George Grande's jaws flapping.

It's embarrasing that the Reds have a pitcher that can't get the ball over 80mph.

On the FSNOH Gun his fastballs that were hitting 93-95 MPH were strikes and about knee high on the corners and tough to hit. When it started reading 98 and 99MPH on that gun was when he started throwing balls. I'd say that he can hit 100 to maybe 104 on a regular basis but 2 things happen when he does that. He is usually throwing high and it appears as though the ball loses its movement, so basically anything above about 96 MPH Wags is overthrowing it and it loses its effectiveness.

The Mets "channel" was clocking Wagner's pitchers at around 96-99.

I seem to recall Hammonds' fastballs being clocked at 82-83 pretty regularly. I don't recall him reching 87 much.

the Shea stadium gun is the same one that Dibble was clocked at 104, or so the legend goes.

Didn't they say earlier this season that the guns aren't able to clock anything below like 60 to 65 mph?

i've seen him throw his changeup at 67 and then end up throwing his FB around 85-87 when he doesn't pitch for a couple days. but now you're right, he's around low-to-mid 80's

Steve "Bad Boy" Stewart said that he tops out at 84 these days during the gamecast. I don't know if that is true or not.
