I'd pay a lot to see a movie where a father and son go out hunting, lure deer in using piss and food (hunting stuff?) and right before they take a shot, they realize that it's the deer that's hunting them (there's like 100 deer with guns, might need CGI for this)
anyways, the deer kill the dad, w...

we just are not set up to be a possession team (not without Altidore and his hold up ability). We've wanted to see it for years, but it's just not an American style yet.
We do however have to be better at it than we were today. For large stretches of the game, we couldn't string together three p...

[quote]100 fastballs? 80+ [/quote]
nope. No way.
A good major league hitter would struggle to make contact at that rate, unless every pitch was down the middle. if the guy is pitching (moving it around the zone) no chance at 80%. Especially someone who's been out of the game 7 years.

the last factor in this question is what kind of 95 is it? As others have said, there's 95 that is very hittable and 95 that you can't touch.
Some people throw fastballs that are 89-90 that look like they were shot out of a gun ten feet in front of you. Some throw 95 that feel like they were thr...

[quote]My brother is way better at baseball than I ever was. He faced a guy in high school who was a top pick in the MLB draft and he threw 100. He hit his fastball right up the middle the only time he faced him.
He said it was very fast but still felt hitable. And obviously it's hitable.
| More Sports Board|| re: Out of 100 MLB pitches.... - LfcSU3520 on 5/6/14 at 12:58 am|
other factor, most 95 mph fastballs aren't straight. Most have at least 6 inches of run which sounds small but jesus christ it makes a difference.
It can make it look like something that out of the hand will be a wild pitch, into a strike.
And if it's down the middle, something you want to s...
