Altuve has become my favorite non-nationals player.

I freaking love Jose Altuve. Although Josh Reddick sending trays of bacon into the stands last night might make him my favorite.

Did you see the way Altuve started and stopped at second base?!  Forced a hard throw from Harper!

Hardnosed baseball!

Why has Gio abandoned his curve ball over the last several starts? He has been a 2 pitch pitcher

Well crap.  This isn't looking good so far with our bullpen being so fried...

SF, isn't it common for a starting pitcher to not throw one of their pitches until later ABs to keep batters on their toes/more difficult to read a pitch?

Where's his buckling curve ball? One of best curves in baseball and he wont throw it. Teams know this too

Yes.  Don't read anything SF writes.  It is 99.9% worthless garbage.

Why do our pitchers always seem to get hit hard in the first inning?

He has basically shelved the curve his last several starts. Used to be his bread and butter

Wanted to confirm my knowledge. Thanks :)

What pitches does Gio have anyways?
