Seriously Brandon?? He just couldn't own it....
Interesting. Harper had similar comments and of course those would be more dismissed since, as we've all heard ad nauseum, he's but a "teenager." The common thread to both comments though (Phillips and Harper) was that sometimes you just guess wrong. It's about calculated risks. For better players, they work out much more often than not. But still don't work sometimes. I buy that. If someone did an analysis of this, I bet it'd show exactly what Phillips and Harper are both saying. No different than throwing a heater straight down the pike to a power hitter after setting him up with off speed. Minority of times he'll put it over a fence. But most of the time doesn't work that way.
