We all know he throws hard, but he doesn't get much, if any, movement on his fastball. How is he making these hitters look so bad? It can't purely be velocity. Kyle Farnsworth proved that wrong.
I thought this was interesting:
Josh Hamilton had this to say about his deceptive fastball last night:
"It doesn't look like 98, 99," Hamilton said. "I've faced guys who throw 94 and it looks harder than that. But it just kind of comes out of nowhere. It's kind of weird. That makes it challenging. ... I couldn't figure out where his arm slot was. That's a problem. You just try to look in a general area."
