:rofl: and you will say anything to defend Dunn.

Everything I was saying regarding that pitch he swung at was factual. undeniable

Coming from the guy who's probably never even been in the box to look at a really good sinker.  Dibble even said that was a great pitch by Johnson and that he had Dunn fooled on the pitch.

You must have a great perspective if you see what ex-big-leaguers don't see.

I consider a sinker a fastball. I have to say though that I looked at the pitch twice and it looked more like a screwball (which is not a fastball) than a sinker. Or maybe it was a two-seam fastball that acted like a screwball? Of course I believe Johnson throws sinkers a lot of the time and probably doesn't even throw a screwball so who knows. I agree with minty though. In that count it looked to Dunn like a good pitch initially but it ended up being a good pitch from the orioles' perspective.  :lol:

Choking a two seamer has this effect. Johnson has some nasty stuff, so it wouldn't surprise me in the least if he threw it on purpose.
