He looks old and out of shape but he's the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner that we (the Blue Jays) acquired in the off season.
Ah. Sorry to bother ya.
No bother, lol. We've had 19 years here with no MLB playoffs, I'm just being an excited fan boy.
Fuck he looks out of shape....was he this bad for the mets @Danielson ?
I know a lot of bigger, fatter dudes have been pitchers, but this cant be good for a guy hitting 39 sometime this year. At least you got him cheap..what was the deal, 4 year 25 mil?
2 year, but he's a knuckballer, he doesn't need muscle. Reports coming in say that his stuff looks nasty already
That's what's most important. And him being AL you wont have to see him run, thats a positive for you. Still, i dont get how people who make that kind of cash can just call it good and get out of shape (at least is how he appears)
Im sure the knuckleball hasnt taken a hit, i laugh every time i see him, because i remember just HATING on him just a few years ago (before he had the knuck)
It's amazing what one pitch can do, lol. I dunno, maybe being fatter adds some extra movement to the ball
His rolls make it harder to see his hands position on the ball when releasing
The man is a genius. Seriously though, other than Colon, I haven't seen a pitcher that big since Fernando Valenzuela. Yes, that's an old reference.
I'm old enough to get it.
Yeah he's out of shape, but he fields his position beautifully.
So his stuff is looking nasty? We get a preview here in about 2 weeks at the WBC
That's what they're saying on the radio. The catchers are having a tough time keeping up with them. So hyped!
Yeah, you're going to see a lot of passed balls. Too bad no one can hit the thing though to take advantage lol
Is it just me or are baseball players the most out of shape athletes who get payed the most?
Pretty much the truth.
Lucroy will handle it well
