  1. Can I vote for ties this series?
  2. One thing I do wonder about though, would DD have drafted Bundy? Usually when teams have a pitching philosophy, they tend to draft pitchers that fit it, like the Braves do.
  3. Need Chen to start there. Remember what happened last time?
  4. I don't think he's boycotting anything. Tillman and Hunter still throw it and they spent time in AAA. He's right that the cutter has a reputation of being a better pitch than it actually is, and there's plenty of correlation of cutters contributing to reduced velocity. If he and Peterson think it's causation, they're more qualified than anyone here to make that decision, I think. I think his overall goal is to make younger pitchers understand that it is a secondary pitch, and should be treated as such.
  5. Maybe Gregg can "pitch inside too much".
  6. Except every single pitcher does it. It's baseball, not the feelings hour.
  7. No, you're supposed to walk around the mound sighing and making stupid faces at the umpire.
  8. Holy Cow, that curveball.
  9. 3 outs and two ejections for Strop. He's pretty good!
  10. Wait wait, they thought he balked... with no runners on? Do they not understand the reason for the balks?
  11. http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20120815&content_id=36734312&vkey=news_mlb&c_id=mlb Say it ain't so, Melkman
  12. Whatever happens, Chris Davis HAS to be in the lineup against Bucholz

    Dylan Bundy Thread

    He still gets to practice the cutter in side sessions. The idea, or so I think, is to force him to learn how to use the changeup as an out pitch, because they fear his cutter will be ineffective against good lefties.
  14. Predictable that the small zone does not extend into the bottom of the 1st.
  15. Cundiff's good year in 2010 was an anomaly. Other than that, he's statistically one of the worst kickers, and "possibly" (probably) cost us a trip to the Superbowl. No thanks.
  16. Preseason NFL games have never been so boring.
  17. Bobby V is getting screwed, but that doesn't mean he's the right manager for the team or anything.
  18. Is it tomorrow yet? More Machado!
  19. Strop is just nasty. Challenged Butler with two straight fastballs down the middle.
  20. Of course, there's Billy Butler in the 9th.
  21. When making an out, Machado injures players apparently.
