On the Mariners
5 games 1.69 Era.. and throwing 93/94 MPH
Wheeler, Harvey, Ike, Duda, Wright, Dickey, and Nimmo for Ollie..
Oh...forgot Omar isn't the GM anymore...
"....Brief periods of being really effective, sandwiched in between long period of being complete sh*t. Now we can add a poor work ethic/attitude to this resume, and the fact that he's probably motivated solely by the promise of his next contract. I don't care if he's throwing 98. He's complete trash. A non-major leaguer. "
>> i didnt watch him today, i watched him the other day. His deliver changed. He is more upright and he changed something else i gotta look next time
From what I saw he is keeping his front shoulder in. If a pitcher lets his front shoulder open too soon it forces him to drag his arm behind him. Also it looked like the height of his leg when he lifts it in his wind up is far more consistent. That goes to velocity. Whether he keeps it up remain to be seen, but his mechanics are better.
he's doing mop up work
dont get too excited.
Well the difference this time around is he can throw 95 MPH...
Perez was good when he had his fastball working (and control).
I think some players just cannot perform for a big market team
Burnett on the Pirates is a good example
