Finally got to see him and Aaron Heilman pitch this weekend in the same game. That was the game Heilman hit 2 guys back to back to load the bases and struck out the last guy. He looks so good and then so bad, all in the same at bat. Is he overthrowing or what?
And as for Dirty, he was 89-91 most of the time I saw him and he got rocked. Has his velocity been that down all season or was it a bad game?
I think that they are giving serious consideration to Parnell. And if it's true that Sanchez was struggling to hit the upper-80s, I don't doubt that Parnell could at least be as effective as he would have been.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
