re: Hitting: Do you look fastball and adjust to the offspeed, - Billy Ray Valentine
[quote]Hitters fight off pitches all the time without the intention of putting it in play as they swing.[/quote]OK, whatever. I'm not trying to argue with you, but that's just not true. It is EXTREMELY rare & ridiculously difficult to read a pitch and intentionally foul it off....

totally depends on the situation Anyone that answers this without at least asking what the count is should be discredited. Pitcher tendencies also important, but the count is most important (unless it's a thumber that throws a bunch of change ups/slow curves...even behind in the count)....

re: Was/Is the SEC really that good or was/is it really just Meyer/Saban? - Billy Ray Valentine
I'm an SEC homer.....but the bias is super strong in here. Understandable, I guess. Assuming wins is just foolish. Look no further than OSU in the playoff.....given virtually no chance in either game....

Was/Is the SEC really that good or was/is it really just Meyer/Saban? - Billy Ray Valentine
Had this discussion with a group of CFB fans with various team/conference ties & it's not outlandish if you're unbiased. SEC won 7 MNC's in a row from 2006-2012 & 7 of the past 9. Five of those are Meyer or Saban. Saban won with LSU 3 yrs prior to that run. SEC has been the clearcut media da...
