When you throw harder, it jumps harder off the bat...


Of course if your Eric Milton, if you throw it 88 belt high down the center of the plate, it goes pretty far too.

I'm sure the gun is adding some mph to the actual speed, but the question is, how many?

He's now hitting over .500 in the past 10 games (Including the same number of walks as Cameron Maybin in the same time period. Haha.)

If history is any indicator, Cueto works in the 93-96 MPH range. I'm guessing that gun tonight was probably about 3-4MPH generous.

Fantastic start, esp. when you factor in his first batter going yard off of him! :thumbup:


And Bruce...at least we can be excited about the future, right?

Working on the recap tonight (waitingg for Billings to end) I see Stubbs went 0-5. It keeps getting worse and worse for him. On the other hand, Medlock had a real nice outing for the Bats.

Stubbs now at .357/.347/.704 for the year. He has a scant 18 XBH to his name. His great speed has accounted for 9 CS in 24 attempts.

It was a massive red flag when he couldn't hit at Billings, and he has done nothing in Dayton to convince me that he is going to put it together at the plate.

Do you mean .257/.357/.404? Otherwise, those numbers look pretty good to me (not to mention impossible!)

Edit: Whoops... I was thinking that was BA/OBP/SLG but now I'm thinking it might be OBP/SLG/OPS... is that right?

Stubbs is hitting .243/.338/.351/.689 after tonight. He has also struck out 81 times to boot. I'm not sure where C.E. was getting his numbers from or what they were.

It's not looking good for Drew.

Pretty exciting night in the minors for the Reds. It looks like we may see Medlock in Cincinnati sometime this summer. I haven't seen him throw. For those who have, who is he comparable to? What pitches does he throw and at what speeds?

Aronchis
06-27-2007, 01:36 AM
It will be interesting if the Reds shutdown Stubbs. His falloff at the plate has been extreme, to the point where his injury may be a real factor. He hasn't run well the last month.

Who would take him? I think they should seriously consider shutting him down and having surgery or whatever it takes to fix turf toe. Let him come back fresh next year and see what he can do. If he flops again, then the injury excuse can't be used again.

Sounds like that 'gun' is a little overly aggressive.

It's probably the same one they use in Detroit that had Verlander at 102 mph in the 9th of his no hitter, and Zumaya at 104 mph last year.

Yeah I'm pretty sure he meant it as OBP/SLG/OPS. But the other way (BA/OBP/SLG) wouldn't be impossible. You can have a lower OBP than BA due to sac flies and sac bunts, especially if the player doesn't take many walks.

Edit: Whoops... I was thinking that was BA/OBP/SLG but now I'm thinking it might be OBP/SLG/OPS... is that right?

Yeah, OBP/SLG/OPS -- I really couldn't care less what his BA is. I'm concerned about if he can get on base and how far the ball flies when he hits it.

Right now he's not doing either one well, IMO.
