Harry venit, vidit, et dixit:
I think that francona was right before and wrong now --- if u are an
opposing pitcher and a strikeout is sitting after manny, then why give his
anything to hit. at least lowell and others made contact. willy has great
power but until he hits a breaking pitch and learns the stirke zone is is
not a #5 hitter after manny.
<snip of post to which the above was top-posted in reply>
It's okay to bottom-post (and trim irrelevant text).
And why is the strikeout worth all that much? Pena (if we go
by the numbers from just this season) is less likely to make any
sort of out (strikeout or otherwise) than, say, Mike Lowell. Why
would the pitcher prefer to pitch to the guy who is less likely to
make an out (and who ALSO has more power than Lowell)?
Catch you later.
