Even opposite-handed pitchers can take advantage of a stacked lineup with too many consecutive opposite-handed hitters by digging in on one side of the mound and getting a good feel for how they need to throw each pitch to hit the outside corner consistently. Locking in that muscle memory early can set a guy up to have a great day on the mound.

Can someone hide Belisario's passport before they leave for the series in Toronto?

How about telling him the flight to Toronto leaves at 4:00 when it really leaves at 1:00?

You really can't bring him in unless you have a three run lead.

Better make it 6:00. The next day. At the wrong airport. And call in a bomb threat to the airport, too.

Great job by Ventura continuing to show confidence in Belisario.

Didn't he get the save?

Of course, that run doesn't score if Downs could get a god damn lefty out.

Sure, but the other side of that coin is that he doesn't score if Belisario doesn't give up back to back hits.

No, but Belisario was lights out as a setup guy. It only makes sense that, if Belisario blows as a closer and is awesome as a setup guy, you put him in a position to succeed. I'll take a guy who can get three outs with consistency in the 8th and a question mark in the ninth over a question mark in the eighth and an interrobang in the ninth.

Proof is in the pudding:

Belisaro is avg in the 8th below avg in the 9th, and above average in the 6th and 7th. Not the biggest sample sizes, but the trend is there.

It's OK, though, there was a time when every educated man on the planet knew the Earth was the center of the universe.



Um, it isn't..??

I'd like to see Guerra get a shot. He is the one with the most closer experience (29 career saves) and was throwing darts his last couple times out. I doubt they make the change though.
