did FP call that or what

FP is very good about explaining pitch selection and what goes through the batters’ and pitchers’ minds. Better than any announcer I’ve listened to, actually.

You won’t hear that here though....

Seriously, why do people insist on acting surprised by this?

Human nature. It doesn't just apply to baseball. Second guessing is what we humans are really good at.

Especially for a non-pitcher. Jim Palmer wasn't bad at it IIRC.

Not so sure you're right here, for after spending years listening to Red Sox & Yankee announcers, FP seems like any analyst who played baseball

What does that mean? Is that good or bad? Do others call pitches as well?
