Re: More talent: Reds or Cardinals?
The stats and recent performances say otherwise, but I just feel like that staff shouldn't be that good.
Wainwright and Garcia rarely throw strikes when I watch them pitch. Everything is around the plate, but out of the k zone. But the hitters swing and miss liberally. I'd like to see hitters be more patient against them and see what happens. AJ Burnett of the Pirates is like that. Around the plate, but not necessarily strikes. If you get an ump with a large K zone, it helps too.
This is based on when I watch them. I'm sure they look better against other clubs.
