Peeing on a Picasso

Well, so much for the “rising cutter”…Halladay only threw one kind of cut fastball today as he demolished the Indians. It was the same boring old deadly consistent Doc. Only thing of note is that all the hits came off his sinker – his cutter and Curve went for no contact other than ground outs.

And what to say about B.J. Ryan’s latest collapse except that he couldn’t find the plate? Maybe that he’s still not throwing his slider, and certainly not effectively. Ryan’s first 13 pitches today were fastballs, and then then his first slider was smacked for a single. It also looks like he’s trying to pick at the corners with his 88 mph fastball.
