Wacha, continued....6th inning

He was just joking with the FB...it's back up to 93-95 and his command was solid again. He threw another curveball and this one was for a taken strike, it was just average looking though.

6th inning - 15pitches/11strikes/4balls - 10fastballs/4changeups/1curveball

Wacha, continued....7th inning

He's just attacking the zone, I'm impressed with that. I also love his changeup. He threw 1 more curveball this inning and it's still average and more of just a showme type of pitch. This may be his last inning as he's over 90 pitches now.

Yes, do very much keep in mind this is the Royals...they couldn't hit their way out of a wet paper sack over the last 2-3 weeks. With that said, Wacha has still been impressive and wouldn't have given any team time enough to take pitches with how much he's pounding the zone and keeping guys off balance...though maybe another team would have a couple more hits off him tonight, who knows.

Wacha does need a 3rd pitch, he's got that curveball that is just average and they say he'll throw a cutter and/or a slider but he really didn't throw it tonight, nor did he need to though. If that change is off at all, all he's left with is a straight fastball so I'd imagine he'll have some rough nights against better offenses...he was good tonight though.

Gwynn will be the backup CF'er. Schumaker will likely see the largest increase in PT since he is the next best at fielding center. They won't be able to stomach too much of Ethier in center.

a lot of information you posted. maybe you could move that over to the Wacha thread? seeing how this thread will be locked tomorrow. could be useful to those reading that thread.
