Some guys are just shy, Belli. I mean, some guys have wives that get mad about that. I mean, I dunnooo...
Dave Roberts said Kenley Jansen will be “more aggressive” in his throwing program this Spring than past Springs.
Excited for him to be “touching 90” on opening day.
This is brilliant. Absolutely love this. I'm making this mine and am not going to give you any intellectual credit because I'm a cheater
Im fine with no charges because im not cop.
But im also fine with others taking their shots.
And im fine with them getting charges for doing so.
Im sure they will take their suspensions with gusto.
Everyone knows whats up and there will be no shame.
No matter what the players do or the league does.
Only the asterisks will feel the shame.
No worries, I haxxor.
Too bad about Clevenger.
His biggest problem the last couple of years that has been pointed out is that he loses his mechanics quite frequently. It is not just, "Hey, he's throwing 95 tonight with cut, he must be amped!" then the next night "wow, he doesn't care, he's throwing 88 tonight." That is what we say on here and it feels like, but it has been mentioned a few times online that he has done a poor job of repeating his delivery the last couple of years and it is costing him MPH's one night and cut the next. Coming to camp and having a regular lead in, may be the best way for him to get all sorted out so he can maintain for a whole season. It has been pointed out that his cut is so filthy, he does not need it to be 95-97 for him to be dangerous. If all he can muster is 91-94, as long as he has the cut, he could still be a great closer, he just has to re-find his fucking mechanics.
Kenley’s biggest problem is no movement on the ball. If you are “touching 90” flat straight, it doesn’t take sign stealing to hit it out of the park.
That's the thing, it is directly aligned with his mechanics. He has had landing issues for over a year now and it's messing with his release that is messing with his movement. He will figure it out for a week and everything will look like it used to, then he'll lose it again. Remember, Kenley used to be great at pounding the strike zone and not leaving anything over the plate. Over the past two seasons he has started missing his location by a solid foot+ and showing no ability to work the ball up in the zone. Those are mechanic issues that hopefully he can fix.
Was listening to sports radio the other day, and a texter had a funny idea. He was going to go to an Astros game with a sign that says “Hey Astros, please don’t steal my sign”
Sorry, gotta find some humor out of this god awful mess.
Mechanics are really the end all be all.
It takes work constantly and religiously to protect your mechanics.
As soon as injuries or bad habits come up you can no longer rely on just your natural talent or your learned skill.
You must practice.
Or your preaching will be batted back to your face.
Good idea. Thy only need him in the second half anyways.
You need to be a cop to want charges ?
All that preacing you do about who gets what share of whatever and the unfairness of so much of it, and it's OK
( or worthy of ignoring) because you're not in law enforcement ?
Admittedly, maybe it's because I'm not tuned into the witty code banter, and I' m missing the drift.
But how far does " cause I'm not a cop" go ?
Sometimes, it seems like your the biggest sheriff on this board.
Not saying that's bad, necessarily...but there were millions of dollars they got for winning...and cheated to insure they did.
87's still gonna sting
especially if placed properly
Will opposing stadiums troll the Astros this year? They have to play a lot of Ace Of Base between innings for them, right?
and therein could lie the problem
kenley doesn't strike me as the most diligent worker
and although he pitched very well in 2017 just after signing a 5yr extension, he's been a lot less effective the past two seasons
the poor mechanics that you and coloradokid alluded to have cost him, his teammates, the organization and loyal fans dearly
he needs to be on a short leash... especially if graterol looks good
This is why I'm surprised that Dusty boarded this train. Dude must've been really desperate.
