More importantly it's straight. The league will catch on soon.



Yeah thats what Im afraid of. I think he has been more lucky than good so far. If he could learn to locate it like Betancourt could then I think we have something if not......... :hide:

So far he's at 12.54 K's per 9 innings. You don't do that throwing straight fastballs down the middle, even at 95-96.

There's nothing wrong with this guy's fastball.

What I don't get is how a pitcher with an arm like this could be so bad for Colorado. Rogers said that when he got here Manny said "You're my long man" and having a defined role allowed him to relax and pitch better.

Except he's not the long man. I think he's at 9.1 innings in 7 appearances. But whatever he's doing, it's working now.

Because there is something wrong with his fastball or more importantly the location of it ;-) ;) :wink:

As you can see above, it is perfectly legitimate to run pitching numbers through "The Duncanator" as well.
