It was his fastball. The Twins announcers were kinda laughing when BJ threw an 82 mph high fastball to Morneau.
I'd be laughing too! And to think I almost dropped Downs!
Guys, c'mon! This thread has been extremely helpful over the past several years because people have been diligent enough to post useful and informative information regarding closers and potential closers. We have 130 pages and not a single closer has lost his job yet...at least I don't think so, but I'll never know because there's 130 pages I would have to check to figure it out.
I don't mean to pick on people here because there are alot of offenders, but this is not the place to post that the Twins announcers were laughing at BJ for his velocity and this is not the place to post that you would be laughing too, or who you almost dropped. It is possible I would like to read those comments in another thread, but please spend 2 seconds before you click submit and ask yourself, "Does this belong in the '2009 Closers Thread (No Game Commentary Please)
