Except it looked off the plate. Not sure what brooks baseball shows, but it appeared to be ball 4. I tip my cap to Cabrera. Or is it that a 96 MPH fastball on the outside part of the zone is considered an inferior pitch now?
Agreed -- it was a mid-90s fastball just off the outside corner. Great swing by Cabrera. The point being, no way does he put a swing like that on that pitch unless he is looking for it. And, judging by the way Chapman has been working lately, the pitch was highly predictable.
This whole fastball-only thing is hard to figure.
