As someone watching the sox yanks series, I couldnt help but notice something about Rivera though. His pitching seems to be mostly Pshycological rather than actually nasty "stuff". You almost know that hes going to throw a 95 MPH fastball down the middle as the first pitch, why do guys just look at it? Knowing this guys reputation with how good hes been, why look at a perfect hittable pitch like that? I'll tell ya why, because hes pshycological. Somehow hes gotten into the heads of the batter and thats why he is so good. I can see from his pitches why a lefty has a hard time hitting him, but the way his pitches move(his cutter), rightys should be KILLING HIM! Its just amazing with all the scouting reports on him that hitters arent kiling him. Anyone else understand what im saying, agree or disagree? Once again, not taking anything away form Rivera, hes one of the best but it amazes me no hitters really catch on.
