The Mockingbird

The Next Best Thing

leave a comment »

There’s another Blue Jays Blog up and it seems to have started out not only nerdy, but pitch f/x nerdy! This seems like a good enough time as any in the middle of a long, boring winter to recap the best of the Mockingbird’s pitch f/x articles about the Blue Jays. Is anyone/anything interesting missing? I started to pick apart Frank Thomas last night and decided to save the world from unending boredom and utter obviousness – the Big Hurt mashes the inside pitch?! You don’t sayyyy….

  • Alex Rios – Did pitchers change their approach in the second half to sap his power?
  • Roy Halladay – What was really wrong with him for those three terrible starts?
  • Vernon Wells – Did he pop up the first pitch 100% or just 75% of the time?
  • Jesse Litsch – Has a very long way to go and is learning on the job.
  • Jesse Litsch – Might just be getting better.
  • John McDonald – Can’t hit an above-average fastball (You don’t sayyyy…).
  • Dustin McGowan – Made one lousy pitch on the way to a no-hitter.
  • A.J. Burnett – Took a couple of weeks at the start of the year to find his stuff.
  • Scott Rolen – Doesn’t just show his power by hitting mistake fastballs 500 feet.
