There is no bigger proponet of the breaking ball on this board than me, but almost half is way too many.
I watched a game yesterday with a guy who threw about half curves and lead off every batter with a breaking ball.What happened when he missed with the curve? He had nothing to go to because he did not develope his fastball nor did he throw a changeup. I called just about every ptich before he threw it and was right about 80% of the time.
I ca not watch the little league world series for this reason, Ian.
