This Team.... by Victor Rojas

Recommended Posts

Not Victor's best work. It read basically like a recap. I like it when he really digs deep and offers a perspective I wouldn't have considered or had access to before. Like his interview with Vin Scully.

I did notice he had a similar observation that I had after Shohei's first inning. He was working in the 95 mph zone and not 97 like before. Then after a couple innings he was consistently at 98-100.

But I try not to freak out over velocity readings. As I've heard Gubicza say before (and others like Glavine, Nagy and Mulder), adding and subtracting from your fastball presents as a viable 4th pitch in many cases. It's cool if you can sit95, but if you can drop down to 91 on one pitch and add extra movement and then reach back and fire straight 97 on the next, you can really keep hitters off balance.

I notice that Richards and Meyer did that often.
