awesome video ;-D ;-D

tyvm for posting that.


The one thing that comes to mind immediately however is if he doesn't throw fastballs to lefties shouldn't his cutter be easy to time and predict? If it ends up a little inside and up from where a normal fastball would end up can't that be compensated for on the hitter's end?

Meant to say that I also greatly enjoyed that and was curious how lefties don't dominate him if he's only throwing one pitch to one place.

There's a great article on Fangraphs that complements that video nicely: Rivera’s Cutters Working the Count

I don't know that pitch f/x systems can discern his FB from his CT with great accuracy because his pitch percentages on Fangraphs vary much more widely from year-to-year than I'd expect from someone with such a refined formula for success. Which would mean that some of the pitches defined as CTs in the article may in fact be FBs, but it's another interesting analysis nonetheless.

WTF is he doing throwing his moms money away like that? Also this Josh guy better watch his back, I'd hate to have someone like that coming after me. Who knows what he'd do?
