Is this disaster reminding anyone of Pedro Cerrano from "Major League"?:

(Batting practice, after Cerrano is killing the ball)

Manager to pitching coach: "Man this guy hits a ton, how come nobody else picked up on him."

To pitcher: "OK Eddie. That's enough fastballs, throw him some breaking balls."


The question needs to be asked: How come nobody else picked up on him?

I am thinking we have our answer.

I agree...Shingo sucks! :angry:

If you're going to go Major League comparisons, it'd have to be that old psychologist pitcher/coach from Major League 3. That guy had a 45mph fastball.

Ol' Pitcher, "Should I go with the fast ball or stick to the slow stuff?"

Scott Bakula, "Do you have a fastball?"

Ol' Pitcher, "Uh.... no"

There's a minor difference between Shingo and Cerrano. Cerrrano couldn't hit a curveball. Shingo can't throw one.

That said, I should say I don't care much for side armers to begin with. The motion looks more condusive to shooting craps than throwing a basball.

"I say f*** you JoBu! I do it myself!"

I think we can all learn something from this.
