April 7th Game Thread: White Sox vs. Tigers

Giolito's fastball velocity has been very underwhelming so far, he's down probably another 2 MPH over even last year.

 

He is pitching in the cold and still hitting 93 at times. I suspect in a month he will be hitting 95 at times.

That's really bad Yolmer.

 

3-1 bases loaded, no outs... swings at a borderline pitch and pops up.

Tricky thing with this can be when he's throwing the cutter that can look a lot like a slow fastball to the naked eye.

 

Statcast differentiates between cutters, 2-seamers and 4-seamers. It's not identifying any of his pitches as a cutter which means there isn't sufficient movement for it to quality as a cutter.

 

His first start his 4-seamer averaged at 91.4 (92.4 last year). His 2-seamer was at 90.5 (last year 91.7).

 

Today he's below 90 on quite a few fastballs.

Why is Engel dipping so much on his swing. Looks absolutely awful

Yeah, he wasn't even close on that fastball. I even knew that pitch was coming. He checked at 2 fastballs right in the zone, like he didn't know where the pitches were.

lol, how does one "over react" when the players in question had over 800 combined PA last year and were over -2 fWAR combined.

 

I'm not over reacting to this year I'm reacting to bad players that have sucked for a long time on the south side.

Such a headcase at the plate. Already changed his swing from spring training
