lol, that's not Irish at all if you're talking about what I think you are.

It's the song "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC.  The intro video is absolutely badass.  Almost too badass for this team. 8)

I kind of wish they'd use a different song, though, since I believe that one is or has been used by the White Sox.

Just some trends with Martis to consider based on his limited amount of innings this year:

-  He is throwing pitches like so:  Fastball (42%), Changeup (23%), Slider (18%), Curveball (13%).  He has decreased the number of fastballs from last year and has increased the amount of sliders by 9% and Changeup/Curveball by 3%.  These numbers could draw closer to last year's with more innings, though.

-  His first pitch strikes are up to 67.5%, last year he was throwing first pitch strikes 50% of the time.

-  Last game, he was averaging 90.3 MPH on his four seamer and had it top out at 93.2 MPH.  The fastball also had some good break on it, about 9 inches vertical/6 inches horizontal, he will have another good outing if he can do the same tonight.

-  He did not have any innings with more than 20 pitches and had two innings with just 8 pitches.

We need one of those "recommend this post" buttons.

JMU, I'm assuming this is based on aggregated Pitch F/X data, where are you finding that?

Nah hes not talking about that although his description made it seem that way.

Its just some random song they played before thunderstruck when the players were going back to the dugouts

But I really AM nuts about the Nats!

The song makes it seem like the Nationals and the Nats are different.

True, you could be crazy for the Nationals AND nuts about the Nats....
Guess I never looked at it that way.

no it's not thunderstruck.  it's before the team comes out like a few minutes before they announce starting line-ups/take the field.
