Re: Friday July 27 Minor League Updates
I agree that "hiding" a couple mph for most of the game is great, but I love to see Ks. The more Ks, the less likely batters get lucky.
That said, pitching to contact makes sense if you want to stay in the game longer (thereby lessesning the need on the 'pen and typically poorer 'pen arms) and you have a great defense behind you. Which the Reds do.
