And playoff pitchers will throw first pitches that look like creampuffs but aren't and too many 10 or less pitch innings would be my bet.
I've been wrong before....but this is my feeling and man that's a long ways away!
Really, does Votto just prefer to walk? Taking a borderline outside pitch for strike 3 against this UMP, it makes no sense.
Cozart is getting better and better at getting the pitcher deep into the count.
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
This is a long season with many different phases. Sorta like being married
For a player doing well now, they may be sucking a bit by June 29th. For a player struggling now, they may be rocking it by June 29th. Then by the end of the season it is all around again.
But some players like Rolen drive me nuts. Unlike Arroyo who deserves and should have a spot in the rotation(though I think it should be the 4/5th role), Rolen can improve and still be bad. It represents how far he has fallen as a player. I don't think he is really healthy and just wants one last gasp at the WS.
Haha wow that was nowhere near the strike zone
This ump has the biggest strike zone in the history of baseball.
8 K's....got to be a season-high, I'd think.
