Re: The excellence of Bronson Arroyo
Not every pitcher has the guts to throw an 83 mph "heater" down the middle of the plate. Bronson sets up his pitches so well that batters assume it's a slider or changeup that's going to drop out of the zone. Then, when it floats by them, they get frustrated and end up chasing the next pitch -- usually a slider or changeup that drops out of the zone.
The man is a devious wizard.
