Ted Lilly- HR Machine

Postby coma » Fri Jun 27, 2008 4:08 am

I was wondering why Lilly gives up so many homers? Is it something about the way he pitches? I was just curious because they seem to come at a great rate (he has more than Harang!), and it's somewhat hurting me.. Haha I also have Harang and Greinke on my staff who seem to give up lots of homers.

My guess would be because he's more of a control pitcher without a ton of velocity. He really needs to hit his spots consistently to be effective, which obviously doesn't always happen... :-o

I'm sure the flyball tendency coupled with Wrigley (top 10 park for HR) can't help either...

Pitching at Wrigley certainly isn't doing him any favors, agreed. As long as he's not walking the park like he was a few years ago, I'm down with Ted.
