CoC can never be wrong so he'll come back and say 105 is his "super high end" velocity or something.

I should have read closer.    “Super”.    So 102 is fast but you need to have gone to plaid to be super?   😂

At one point he had a gear no one else in baseball had.  That is no longer true.

Y'all can act like I don't have a valid point if you like but I'm not wrong, he not what he was.

I understand your point.    But you have to admit your timing to make it was blown up a bit.

Way back in post # 2, I offered my astute analysis of this game.

Don't pitch to Gleyber Torres, I said.  Pitch to Michael Ford, I said.

And Torres ended up taking an 0-for-5 and Ford hit the game-winning home run.  

So much for my brilliant analysis.  😞

That was about as prophetic as my Beat 'Dem Yanks thread title.

Also right.  He's down 3-4 mph.  That's significant.

Not when it’s over 100 mph. He’s still in the top percentile of high velocity guys. And guess what? It’s a very small percentage of guys. That means ML hitters see less of guys who throw that hard and it isn’t easy to hit a guy who throws 88 with good command. With Chapman it’s almost impossible when he has both pitches working.

And that’s not to mention his wipeout slider. Ask Mancini if he thinks Chapman is on his way out.

The velocity drop he’s had since he came into the league is not significant because he’s a better pitcher. Especially since he still regularly touches 100 mph.

    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the Orioles completed a three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals.  The Orioles won by a score of 10-8. Mike Cuellar won his 15th game of the season with a 5.1 inning, 8 hit and 5 runs allowed effort.  He also walked 2 and struck out 5. Paul Blair and Curt Motton were the offensive catalysts for the Birds.  Blair went 4 for 5 with 2 doubles and 2 runs scored while Motton went 2 for 4 with a homerun, 2 runs scored and 5 RBI. BOX SCORE
    • No, Cashner’s value is based on what the market says it is.     No one was willing to give up any top prospect for him..or even organizational top 10-15 prospects. Some of the complaint about the deal revolved around the timing of the trade.  Elias traded him early, likely because he wanted to deal him before his value plummeted.  Had he waited and Cashner had done the same thing in Baltimore that he did in Boston, Elias would not have been able to trade him for anything more than some salary dump deal where they got nothing back but salary relief and even then, he may not have been able to do it.
    • Bleier was clearly dealing with injuries last season.  He appears healthy now.  When healthy he has pitched well since joining the O's.
    • Fact remains that we need quality pitching to raise to the top.   And especially in Camden Yards quality starting pitching is hard to find.   IMO its better to acquire a quality starter whenever you can.  Hitters are much easier to find with a home park like Camden.
    • It's 3 innings in 2 games. Last June he had a stretch where he allowed 1 run in 6.1 innings. One might have said that he certainly looked like he was back to his old form at that point. Then he had a 4.58 ERA the rest of the year.  Then in August he had a 2 game period with 2.2 innings, no runs, 1 hit, 4 Ks. Back to his old form right? But then he had a 4.60 ERA the rest of the way.
    • The crowd should give Bleier a standing ovation tonight.
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, Jim Palmer pitched a complete game as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals 9-1.  Palmer gave up 6 hits while walking 2 and striking out 5.  The Royals didn't touch Palmer for their lone run until the 8th inning when Amos Otis doubled with one out and Lou Piniella's two out single knocked him in; Palmer then surrendered a single to Bob Oliver before getting out of the inning. Merv Rettenmund led the way for Baltimore with a 4 for 5, 4 runs scored, 1 RBI game.  Elrod Hendricks went 3 for 4 with 1 run scored and 3 RBI and Davey Johnson went 3 for 5 with 1 run scored.
