What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Well it looks as though Daru could not make all of needed ajusments last time. This is just the one problem I feared. Maybe he will turn around for the positive and the exact opposite. He is the ace so I do expect.
What do all other of my fellow Rangers fans think?
I think he tries to finesse batters too much. Just throw the damn ball. His pitch counts are unacceptable. You can get away with that in Japan but we play REAL baseball here in the states. He must change or he will become a 4-5 pitcher at best. HE IS NOT AN ACE!
Get him catcher with only one finger please!
When you are one of the few players in the world that can throw a baseball 96-97 mph....you should do it. JD's first 2 sentences says it best.
Hitters are learning that he will go deep in a pitch count therefore only pitching 5-6-7 inning. He will blow his arm as will some of our relievers who have to take his place. He appears scared to throw the fast ball. Everytime time I see that big looping curve I know that's another pitch added to his pitch count. Right now he's our 3rd best pitcher. If Lewis and Harrison were healthy and we made the playoffs I doubt he would be in the starting rotation for the playoffs.
Pitch counts are overrated. I couldn't believe I was actually agreeing with whoever the color commentator was in the national broadcast. As long as they're still throwing with sound mechanics, 120-130 is still fine.
120-130 pitches over 9 innings is great. But 95 in 5 innings is horrible.
Daru needs to get back to the best pitch in baseball.....strike 1.
120 -130 every time out is horrible and if you think it isn't you're an idiot.
Ignore trolls that I have learnt from my best friend in US.
I've learned that once a day you have a kissfest with our #4 starter. Ok maybe #3
