i noticed last week, when i was finally able to watch Zito, that his breaking ball has been flat, his bread and butter pitch. This has lead to him throwing a lot of fastballs. His fastball is nowhere near as effective minus the curve, so he's been getting burnt. That's my interpretation.
My hair's turnin' white, my neck's always been red, my collar's still blue
We've always been here tryin' to sing the truth to you
Guess you could say we've always been red white and blue
