He's never going to be the 14K pitcher again.  That's not who he/they want him to be.
What the hell are you talking about?  The pitch to contact stuff is so much fluff and everyone who matters in the organization knows it.

There's a lot of space between "pitch to contact" and "14 strikeouts in a game".

Good thing she said the word hoopluh instead :mg:

It was actually gross the way she said it, like she threw up in her mouth.

There is no reason not to try to strike out as many guys as you can.  It doesn't raise your pitch counts appreciably over not doing so since not doing so allows more hits, and hence more plate appearances, even if each plate appearance is shorter.  So I'm not sure why you think the organization doesn't want him to be that pitcher.  I think it's much more likely that he physically can't right now.

Well, still in Blacksburg about to go get my party on down at Sharkey's.  Might have to see if they'll put the game on now that the Hokies have stomped a little anii.

Big Mike Stanton crushed any homers yet?

No. Strasburg has made him look silly both times up tonight

Hokies should play some tougher opponents like Bama and Temple. Wait, what?

Not a shocker, that guy likes to strikeout swinging.

Stras has Stanton's number tonight.  Enjoy Sharkey's - I love that place!

This is Rob Dibble insanity.

Whether or not he can physically do it now is moot.  He SHOULDN'T do it.  He doesn't have to do it.  He can be just as effective by only striking out seven or eight, which is what he'll likely do on a regular basis.  That doesn't mean he won't occasionally strikeout 12 or 14.

Justin Verlander has had 4 double digit strikeout games this year.  In his no-hitter, he struck out four.

And Cliff Lee has 8.  In his best years, Pedro had tons.  What's your point?

He doesn't have one, he's flat out wrong. They do not want him to turn into Lannan.

Too bad Fister didn't end up in the NL, then the Marlins could win hand over fister.
