How sick is AJ's stuff?

"I saw something different than I saw in spring training. He wasn't just throwing hard, he was trying to make better pitches," said Mets slugger Carlos Beltran, who was 0-for-4. "Today he was, I think, more aggressive really and his screwball was working well for him inside. It was very tough to handle because he throws hard."

AJ doesn't throw a screwball :p

I think he meant curveball, but who knows, he may have had that kind of rotation going today...

 

Well, that would be rather sick, since screwballs bend to one side and then bend to the other if they are top notch (hence the 'screw').

Maybe he ment the tailing 2 seam, moves almost the same as a screwball just different velocity...

That one I could see.

 

It's still funny though :cool

You misunderstood what I meant (and I could have been clearer) I meant that he meant to say "curveball" instead of "screwball" not that he thought his curveball was a screwball...

Beltran said screwball because of how much AJ's Fastball really was moving from middle of the plate to the outside of the plate. Its a normal 2 seam fastball that AJ throws.

Yea he really used his 2-seam effectively today... In fact, I've never seen him use it as much as he did today...
