"When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail"
Doug first let me first say thanks for all the hard work and info. Now my question how crazy am I Cuckoo's Nest crazy or Courtney Love crazy? Might Travis Wood become a Mark Buehrle type pitcher? Buehrle does not top out above 90 on his fastball either. Wood not have enough movement or what?
Never seen the kid pitch so looking for the pie in the sky you know!!
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
Wood's control this year has been the key to his performance. It will be interesting if he can maintain that control at AAA and then in the majors. Wood's walk rate this season to this point is: 2.8/9 IP. If he can maintain this type of control he could be a very effective starter for the Reds. I'm going out on a limb and saying it's not an anomaly (and hoping I'm right! !
Ironic that the Buehrle comparisons were made today!
Tom Glavine walked over 3 per nine innings
I hear alot about Woods change. How good is it acutally Doug ? Could it be a top 5 - 10 change in the majors now ?
