I'd say if you put the Texas Showalters in any pitcher's park with a halfway decent pitcher opposing them on the mound, they are a below-average team.

Are you freaking kidding me?!?! Bases juiced with 0 OUTS...pop out, strike out, strike out to end the inning!!!!

Showalter your team is WORTHLESS.

Well, they're going to have a chance to get the Tigers pen in the 8th or 9th at least, if the Rangers pitching can hold Detroit...

You just knew those Texas hitters didn't have a chance against him. Pathetic. That is more than likely the ballgame. God I effin hate Detroit.

Ummm...other than just not swinging it all, there's no way to hit an elevated 101 or 102 MPH fastball, even if those radar guns are set deliberately high to excite the fans.

Nobody in baseball has a fastball like that right now, it's not even close.

I did not realize the Rangers had released "Cy" Wasdin. I guess the Sox were the only team he could beat.

caulfield12
08-17-2006, 09:21 PM
Well, like the Royals, the Rangers always seem to play us tough...so what is it that allows Detroit to beat these teams we struggle with?

Pitching, pitching, pitching...

caulfield12
08-17-2006, 09:23 PM
We should pick up all these guys like Bernero and Wasdin and send them to Charlotte so they can't face the Sox.

Or we can find another front-line starting prospect, which would be a lot easier to do.

I actually think facing New York or Boston would be much better than facing Oakland or LA in the first round.

Then again, the A's could get ahead of the AL East winner the way they've been playing recently.

I'll admit Zumaya is decent and down the road will probably make a very good closer, but he was pretty wild before getting those 3 outs. He walked in one run because he couldn't find the strike zone at all. Then he threw a few meatballs down the middle of the plate that were straight as arrows. He got lucky this time.

The only person I've seen pull his fastball for a homer this season was Morneau.

There's a huge difference between a straight 94-96 MPH fastball (like Koch) and the 98-102 range.

Unless you throw it below the letters, it's almost impossible to square up and not pop up.

I didn't see the Konerko homer in April, was that a fastball or offspeed?

It will be interesting to see if either Zumaya or Papelbon go back to starting....with Miller and Sanchez to go with Bonderman and Verlander, Detroit would have the best "stuff" of any rotation in recent baseball history.

Morneau isn't the only one, PK clobbered one of his 99 mph offerings in the first game the last series the Sox had at Detroit.

Steve Stone even mentioned it just a minute ago on the broadcast that "velocity is relative; if you throw a 100 mph pitch that is straight down the middle, it is going to get hit."

I see that Padilla has already started serving his suspension. I'm surprised he didn't appeal.

No way. He would have tripped over Infante if he had.

I'm telling you...I'm having flashbacks of 1990 when no one could beat Oakland (who won 110 games that year, IIRC) except the Sox. Of course the big difference is, there was NO wildcard back then. If there was, I think we'd have been celebrating a World Series victory that year (no teal needed). :smokin:

If they played 19 games and won the same percentage, that works out to 12-7 or an 8-game swing in the standings (four more wins for us, four fewer for them). The A's won by 9 games, so they still would have won by one game, but then, if it had been closer, the late September games might have been played differently.

Did Koch even get his fastball up to 96 when he was with us? I seem to only remember him falling behind hitters throwing all sorts of slow crap up there.

There was a reason the fans in LF used to call him "the Butcher".

I still say the HR AJ hit off him in the 2002 ALDS
ruined his career.He never rebounded.For a current
example,see Houston's Brad Lidge.Between Albert Pujols'
blast in the NLCS, Podsednik's solo HR in game 2 of the
WS,and Jermaine Dye's RBI single in game 4 of the WS,
he's never been the same.

Good point. I just remember being as annoyed by everyone else losing to Oakland back then as I am with everyone else losing to Detroit now.
