Pitch calling
I have seen numerous times this year. Our pitchers are throwing strikes with 0-2 counts right over the plate. Somebody needs to do a better job of making hitters chase in these counts. Unbelievable!!!

re: Pitch calling
I don't think Dunn radios in "hey 87 MPH over the heart of the plate".

That's on Walker

re: Pitch calling
I’m not a troll. I’m never negative on here, but this is basic pitching strategy.

re: Pitch calling
Serious question.

Do you honestly think the pitch was meant to be an 87 MPH fastball directly down the middle?

re: Pitch calling
You waste a pitch way up there or something offspeed in the dirt. He was trying to throw a strike there, so it shouldn’t have even been close to the heart of the plate.

re: Pitch calling
Certainly on Walker but my God get the ball out of the strike zone. He's only been pitching since he was 7 years old. O-2 in his eyes, outside, anything but gut fastball.

re: Pitch calling
Walker isn't in the business of throwing waste pitches. He isn't Alex Lange with a whipeout breaking ball. His game is painting the corner, maybe keeping it an inch or 2 off the plate. That's probably what he was trying to do there and just missed his spot.

Trust me, I see what you're saying, but you have to understand, Eric Walker (normally) can put the ball wherever he wants. That's a perfect time for a fastball an inch off the plate.

Whoever disagrees with my point does not understand situational pitching. I won’t back down on this because I know I’m right. You can’t make those mental errors at this level.

re: Pitch calling
No one disagrees with your point. You’re just a moron if you think Dunn called for a fastball anywhere near the middle of the zone there.

It shouldn’t have been close. That’s my point.

re: Pitch calling
Dude, I understand situational pitching. in that situation with that pitcher, you throw a fastball a few inches off the plate.

How many times in his 2 years have you seen Eric Walker get guys to chase balls in the dirt. When you throw slow, those waste pitches don't work nearly as well. There was runners on first and second, and a waste pitch could easily advance them to 2nd and 3rd.

Walker simply missed his spot. It's not that complicated.

re: Pitch calling
No...that’s exactly why walker should be further off the plate in that situation because he can’t afford to miss and gut someone on 0-2 count.

I don’t blame Walker...I’m blame the pitch calling.

re: Pitch calling


You have no idea what the call was. Walker missed down the zone on a fricking pitch out earlier in the game.

re: Pitch calling
I give up. This has been a pattern with 0-2 and 1-2 counts all season. I guess everybody is just missing their spots on these counts and gutting hitters.
