StatCast says 423 ft and I just can’t ...I know they are taking exit velocity, launch angle, and all of that into the scientific equation

But their ain’t no effing way.

Seems like he caught it on a major uppercut, and was on its way down on a more direct path to ground versus curved. Still went over the damn batters eye lol. Ill go 435'.

Did you by chance ever actually see where it hit?

Don’t read or research....watch the HR....use all available info from the video and give an estimated distance

When they move the mound back it’ll go back to how it was when everyone threw 93-95.

But their arms still won’t last

So basically every pitcher in MLB throws very hard....while very few pitchers throw a 89-91 mph fastball along with other pitches. Young guys aren’t lasting, bullpen guys have a shorter playing span than an NFL running back....and again, everyone throws 97.


Bullpens around the league aren’t good...but man do they throw hard.

I see no trend to go “backwards” BUT I feel every team is going to have an extra guy or two that can pitch and get outs...the old fashioned way and I feel it’ll work because it’s different.

I feel analytics will teach guys with Dallas Keuchel and Wade Miley stuff how to better pitch and get outs. Less arm injuries and can pitch more innings. I see maybe a return of the knuckle ballers and side arm...Laredo guys. 

Pitchers now seem more similar than ever and while 98 is harder to square up than 90...that’s true but if 90 is moving and locating and the last 3 guys you faced all through 98.....90 becomes a comfortable at bat resulting in an out.


Where do you see MLB pitching headed in the very near future?

Because they haven't won a game I attended since 1988 (seriously). My friends won't let me go anymore. 

# of games?

About 5 years ago the Reds were 72-90 for the 15th time in 17 years but were 7-0 on games I attended

This year they are playing about .200 ball when I watch so I get it

I can’t believe Wainwright is still playing. He’s gotta be pushing like 42

Feels like a 39....went 7 against Reds other night


Ironman92 replied to "Tribe vs Cardinals Series Thread" at 06:48 pm

Cardinals bullpen is awful but if plate discipline is bad it’ll work

They are full of athletic 5’10 white guys who can play a bit


Sweep them please

I figure with Joey back and in the meat of the order (because feelings matter) the Reds will get back to losing

Low as I have seen it since I’ve been watching

Up to about 6 months ago my neighbor across the street was the only person in the world to have intercepted Joe Burrow 2x in one game.


He’s still the only person but has since moved
