If someone has the information off of the top of their head, can you give the top fastball speed for our starters? Thanks.

Tonight, I think I saw Buehrle top out at about 88ish...

Wright can get up to about 95 IIRC

Garland is in the low 90s (again, IIRC)

And I really have no idea on Ritchie.

Am I even close? Kermit, daver, or Randar are probably better suited to answer this.

I am not suited to answer this,I pay no attention to what the gun says,it is the worst thing ever brought to baseball IMHO,I watch the pitcher's location and the movement on his pitches,that tells me a lot more than the gun does.Biddle has the best fastball on the staff,but he doesn't throw it the fastest,that is where you get into what is relative and what isn't,Greg Maddux will go into the HOF without ever being clocked over 94 MPH.......

Ritchie Throws 92-93 and can push it up too 95 if he needs too. I think?

Sounds right.
