Pitching vs. ex-Teamates: Who has the Advantage?

Postby d18Mike » Thu Sep 04, 2003 10:47 am

Brian Anderson (KC) pitches against his old/recent teamates CLE, next week.

This raises a question ... in match-ups of pitchers throwing against their recent ex-teams, who has the advantage? Is it the pitcher because he knows the hitters, or vice versa.

Are there any statistics on this topic?

I think the Pitcher has the advantage. Mostly b/c he likely knows his former teammates' weak spots by sitting in the dugout and talking ball. Just my opinion, no stats here.

I don't think Brian Anderson has ever had the advantage.

No stats, but I'd say Anderson will do well.

As to who generally has the advantage, it depends on who the hitters/pitchers are. Good hitters will know how to hit the pitcher and a good pitcher will know the hitter's weaknesses. Just my opinion.

whoever keeps his mouth shut when it comes to secret and listens carefully gets the advantage.

I think Anderson should get up there and beane a few of his x-teamates...Scare the pee-fire out of them. Then he has the advantage.
