Quote from Leiter on ESPN.com


Recommended Posts

The article talks about the decrease in home runs between last year and this year, how much of that can be attributed to steroids, etc. I just think it's amusing what Al said when you think of how he's done this season:

 

Marlins pitcher Al Leiter thinks lineups have suddenly become "more manageable." Where once these same orders seemed to be stacked with four and five scary power bats, now "pitchers don't have to pitch around more than a batter, or maybe two," Leiter said.

Oops, I even missed another quote of his further down...

 

The moral of that story is pitchers suddenly aren't as afraid of contact. Leiter said pitchers see they now "have areas to throw to, and the ball is staying in the park. And in many instances, it is now taking three consecutive hits to score a run."

 

 

Apparently the "areas" Leiter is throwing to are all out of the strike zone. :mischief
