Ok…change your name back. Lesser of two evils. Good job EOF. Here it comes. Braves come back magic! Heyward needs to between Chip and McCann. Prado needs to lead off. Why are these things not happening?
The slow pitches aren’t easy to hit. You have to have a specific approach. That’s why, when a team runs out of pitchers in an extra inning game, and have to go to a regular position player to finish pitching, they’d rather have a guy who throws 75 than 85. The pitches are in limbo between batting practice balls and real pitches. Throws off the timing.
That’s (one reason) why facing Tim Wakefield can screw up teams’ timing for days. But you CAN beat the guy if you WILL make the slow-man adjustments. Never pull. Take the pitch and square it up where it comes to you. DAMMIT! OTHER teams have done it. Why not us?
