It's not the velocity. All of his pitches look exactly the same coming out of his hand. Which means you have from the time the ball is released until it's in the zone to identify the spin on the ball. Which is very difficult.

And it still relates to bat speed.  Which still relates to the velocity of the pitch.  I'm not doubting Medlen's deception whatsoever.

Why is Bernadina starting in LF again? For real Davey? Where's that Davey doesn't like Tyler Moore pic ....

You do realize that Bryce Harper has better bat speed than 95% of baseball, right?

And we tend to suck the first time through the order

Medlen's due to lose a start eventually.  Right? :shrug:

Cy Young Kris Medlen. Should get 10-12 Ks tonight before it's all over.

No, he's too good. ERA under 1 as a starter. He doesn't give up anything, period. If he wins this one, this will be 20 straight Medlen starts the Braves have won.

No kidding, that's my point.

If our hitters can't sit offspeed and react to an 89 MPH fastball against Medlen.. Let's just say I'm disappointed and supremely impressed (with Medlen).

This guy Simmons is a big improvement over Janish.

Andrelton Simmons - Nats killer. He hit a game tying home run in the 7th last time Ross pitched vs him

Nice Det ... very nice

We need to get some more hits. Work some counts a little more. Our only hope is to get Medlen out of the game before the 7th.
