I still think Beckett has a massive cannon. He's hit 100 before, and he consistently hits 97-98 mph.

i completely agree with you, but doesn't it seem like heat (and not necessarily control) are alot of guys tickets to the big leagues? It's kind of like the thinking is that "the speed is there so we can work on the control", not the other way around.... :-?

Dude, I can throw (this is guessing) around mid 70s and if i hit anyone in the head they have a good chance of dying.

I saw a long ESPN story on sportcenter about a minor leaguer that the Angels signed that could hit 112 mph (I am NOT joking here), they signed him at the age of 18 to a minor league deal but he kept getting drunk and fooling around with the coaches daughter or something and was thrown off the team, don't knopw what happened to him afterwards. I remmember the story came on about 5 months ago.


I do remember seeing that... Was it really that high though? I remember thinking it was ridiculously high, but was it really 112? That seems almost too ludicrous... :-?

I think this is who you are talking about:
Bobby Jenks
the highest he's hit thoughy is 102. he is now on a DL with a stress reaction in his throwing elbow :/

I think you would be correct... There's an ESPN insider article that I read the first few paragraphs of (can't get the rest since I don't get insider), and it sounds right.

first bit of the insider article


thanksthanks for finding the name matmat ;-D
