Re: Pirates fans are livid
Just a thought on Chapman's control tonight... During his battle with Marte (in which he was just a little wild) he was pitching from the full windup. Against Snider (with nobody on) he went to the stretch and put him away quickly. When McCutchen stepped in Chapman went back to the wind up and hit him. The out of the stretch against Jones, he was firing strikes. It may be nothing but I found it odd to switch like that, and he was more wild from the wind up.
Maybe something was throwing him off in his full motion tonight... Just something I noticed that you don't normall see.
I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager
