    Hanigan put three fingers down for the pitch. I assume that's a slider. Nothing on it that's for sure.

    Right, but after a steady diet of 99mph, have to give Lucroy credit for being on top of anything off speed.

    Using Chapman 5 out of 6 games is just ridiculous. The bullpen has other capable arms. Why couldn't we use Broxton to close out the game??

    I'm all for Broxton being THE closer, but others on where were complaining Chapman was not getting enough work earlier

    I believe the slider is his second pitch. It may have been a changeup.

    Just because a pitch is his second used pitch does not mean the call is two fingers. 3 is commonly a slider (with 2 being a curveball). 4 fingers (wiggled) is often a change up. Those are the common calls and not changed for the pitcher unless he has something like a split finger, screwball, knuckleball, etc.

    It can change up depending on the pitcher, but just because the call is 3 fingers does not mean it's his 3rd pitch.

    I never said it does (necessarily mean that).

    However, each team has their own calls. More specifically, usually each pitcher/catcher have their own signals. What is "common" is irrelevant. Chapman doesn't throw a curve, never has. So the two fingers being "common" to a curveball has no relevance to Chapman's signals. It's most likely that the slider is two fingers for Chapman, since he only has three pitches he uses currently.

    From what I saw the pitch clearly looked like a slider that just didn't have much on it. Either way it was a poor pitch. Hopefully we can forget about it here in a few hours and start another streak. Latos was just filthy against the Cubs.
