    Andrew Heaney today

    He is talented for sure but very inconsistent in the strike zone. Very easy to root for however.

    Cole

    OK, I am looking for good news so expand your idea. We need good news badly.

    Cole

    I think it's not Cole or bust, it's more like Cole and two other starter and 2 middle relievers or bust. Welcome!

    Six man rotation in 2020?

    Aren't we using a 6 man rotation every game? Oh you mean starting rotation. My bad!
  6. Where's the post about words Guby cant pronounce?

    Could Arte afford both Cole and MadBum?

    Cole is a must for me. But they must acquire enough to make Heaney the number 5 that he is.

    Eppler’s concerning gamble of 2019

    Location and pitch sequence are the most important. Pitchers in the past did not try to throw the ball as hard as possible but worked on locating all their pitches. There are not many pitchers in the league today that have that control and we don't have anyone even close. Getting up there and chucking the ball 98 mph means nothing when you have to throw every pitch down the middle.

    Pitches in the NL. Makes a difference.

    Your right. We need 3 starting pitchers next year or we wont compete.

    I disagree with some of what you insinuate, namely pitchers of today require higher velocities to get batters out. This is false. They need to locate their pitches better and change speeds more, like the pitchers of the 60s and 70s did to perfection. Most pitchers have upper 90s fastballs and can throw either a slider or change but cant control any of their secondary pitches. This is why counts get so deep (maybe in combination with batter's increasing their skill to locate bad pitches but I doubt it). The pitcher then must place a fastball directly over the middle and bam ERA to 7.00

    So are you going to tell us or leave us in the dark? (the tootsie pop thing)

    Cole sucks. He has zero control over where he is throwing the ball. He should only be in when either leading or losing by 10.
