Angry Pitching


Hey all, so I throw hard already, but when I’m pissed off I throw much harder. Why


Adrenaline, most likely. You’re more focused, most likely.

I don’t think it’s a problem, if that’s what you’re wondering. I pitched angry constantly – my teammates avoided me on game day. I mother-fuc*ed opposing hitters under my breath (and often audibly) every single pitch. I was a psycho :slight_smile: It worked for me, though.

I was a closing pitcher in the Chicago Cubs organization, so this mentality worked well. Was one of the reasons I got the role. But even as a starting pitcher in college, I approached each inning like a closer approaches the 9th inning of a game – I pitched pissed off at the world with a chip on my shoulder. Loved it.


Thank you Steven


You know how when your angry you really want to punch something or just abesolutely destroy something? Well, throwing the crap out of the ball is similar to that feeling


exactly how I feel you totally get me lol


he uses anger to pitch


he is one of my favorite pitchers


ya dont say lmao, syndergaard is the best at that


im pretty sure cueto, lackey, and many more use anger when pitching


lol lackey


he has no tolerance for questionable ball calls against him


nobody really seems to show it facially


lackey is always angry


I know right?


he’s cancerous to a team not sure why the cubs would sign him


Actually the adrenaline of the game will probably help
out a little bit to regain command and concentration about the things that I have to do.
