What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Was it because he had not worked in a week and was extra strong or was he saving it for the stretch run. Several 100, 101, and all other fastballs were at least 99 tonight to go with a disgusting 91 mpg "changeup."
That's pretty fast. Did he throw any of that curveball of his. I'd be delighted to see the A-Rod Killer come out to play.
He threw that slider a couple times and one I believe was a called strike.
His best pitch when the fastball is working is that 90 mile an hour cutter. It's got great late movement but it looks just like his heater out of his hand. But he can't throw it if he isn't burning the fastball in with good location. Just like every other pitcher, the fastball sets everything else up. Last night his fastball was A++++.
That was on an accurate gun too, not la "fast" gun like they have in KC and a few other places. That was a true 101 MPH. Even more impressive to me was the way he mixed up his pitches. Not seemingly all fastballs for once. Excellent job. If he could mix 'em up like that and be as effective as he was with them, then I will be anxious to see what really happens with this rotation in Spring Training.
