Anyone see that picture @whitesox.com of Cease and how he has the tip of index finger on the seam of the baseball. What pitch is he throwing there.? Does he throw all his pitches with that grip ? I would think not so perhaps that is easy for the opposition hitters to spot since it makes that finger stick out above the ball.

I think we will get the decent Cease tonight. He will probably have one bad inning, hopefully he can minimize the damage.

Not as long as he has to face lefties

Logan Morrison was on a podcast where he said even at the AAA level hitters know what pitch is coming 85% of the time.  He went down the list of what he looks for.   Glove position, wrist angle, arm angle, they slow their bodies down on off speed. It's almost impossible not to tip pitches.  The idea is to command it so even if they know what's coming they still can't hit it.  Cease isn't there yet.

4 strikeouts for cease through 2. I know he has real command issues but I do think babip bad luck will normalize

The way Clevinger dances on the mound, looks like he has to piss real bad 

That would drive me crazy as a hitter.
