Thanks for mentioning the 5-game errorless streak, Bob.

Last year a friend of mine was at Nats Park, watching the Nats get no-hit late in the game.  I sent him a text "no hitter no hitter no hitter no hitter....." and the very next Nat up drilled a clean single.

Does anyone else notice how much Clippard's fastball moves upward as it approaches the plate, pretty crazy.

Yes, sorry, I meant "how much Clippard's fastball rises"

The thing jumps up almost, a pretty pitch really.

Oh great, Pudge has tightness in his back.

In other NL East news, John Maine was pulled due to muscle spasms and shoulder pain

The so-called rising fastball is a myth.  A pitch that seems to be rising is really falling at a much slower rate than normal, and the angle of the camera (higher than the pitcher) is what gives the illusion of upward movement.

THe camera angle also makes a left hander's curve look like it has more break than a right hander's, but not true.

Otherwise, if the catcher didn't catch it the pitch would end up in space.  :lol:
