Chris Capuano turning into a quality mixed league SP.

Capuano throws around 89-91 and he's really mastered his change. He also (like all Brewer pitches) tries to take possession of the inside portion of the plate...very aggressive.

BTW, let's not rip Adams too much for this one. He gave up a swinging bunt single to Castilla (which Branyan mishandled) and then had to IBB Johnson. If he doesn't get unlucky, the game might still be 0-0.

Anyway, if you check some of my prior posts on Capuano, I've been fairly high on him all along. He's worth owning.

Yeah, Adams got beat, but it was a bunch of bad luck. Cappy has been good all year, he's fun to watch, although he is prone to the home run. He tends to give up the dinger when he's going after the inside part of the plate, as you said, and someone turns on it. You're right about his change, it has quite a bit of movement and really fools righties. He also tosses a slider, mostly to lefties. And, he has an ecomonics degree from Duke, so he's smart too. The total package.
