    Why...

    Post by Guest on Sun Apr 24, 2016 3:08 pm

    ...don't more guys get the green light on 3-0?  Two outs, our 4th place hitter goes 3-0, nobody on, Sox up 3-1, takes the next pitch, a batting practice fastball right down the middle for strike 1.  Why?  Let him hit.  He walked on the next pitch and then someone pops up and the inning is over. Let him rip at that pitch. What are the odds a 2 out walk with the bottom of the order coming up is going to produce anything? (Roger?) Might as well try to hit it out, like Konerko in the WS, and if he fails, big deal.  I can see not letting Saladino or Novarro swing 3-0, but your 4th place hitter??

    Good question. With two outs and 3-0 count, anyone in the upper half of the lineup ought to have a green light.

    Oh, I'm sure that somewhere there is a statistic that says take the pitch. Or possibly a financial reason. You know new age baseball!!

    Check out the batting average against for Adam Wainwright on first pitch?  Last I heard, it was something like 11-16 or .580 something.

    Kinda blows the theory about making him work harder/throw more pitches out of the water.  If a pitcher is CONSTANTLY getting ahead with first pitch strikes against you, then start swinging until he changes and throws tougher pitches.  Why be 0-1 every at bat?

    But true fan is your alter ego.

    Maybe it's Roger.  Nobody can be that much of a robot

    BECAUSE SATAN HAS YET TO BREAK CHARACTER.

    PLUS YOU CAN TELL THE PERSON BEHIND THE CHARACTER HAS A CERTAIN SENSE OF HUMOR.  A SENSE OF HUMOR THAT I DON'T SEE IN ROSEBOWL.  IN FACT, I DON'T SEE THAT SENSE OF HUMOR IN MOST OF YOU.

    disagree.

    Todd thinks he's God

    Al in Cal would place more emphasis on fire and brimstone.
