1> Where in the batter order would you place yourself?
I hit in the 4 spot the last 1/3 of the year but I really didn’t like it since I saw way too many curve balls. I love the 5 or 6 spot for myself.
3> How would you pitch yourself with no runners on?
CB, FB, CU
4> How would you pitch yourself with just a runner on first?
- Would it make a difference, for you anyway?
Depends on where the runner is":
1st base runner, CU FB, FB to get a double play out.
2nd base runner, FB, CU, CB I really want a strike out.
3rd base runner, combo or FB’s and CU’s since I especially don’t want a pass ball in the dirt etc.
5> Now here’s the most important questions of them all …
Do you face batters like youself, and do you use the
same logic above to handle those batters? Or does
someone do that for you?
I have been on teams that call everything from the dugout, right now the catcher checks with the dugout. Even when I was with the team that called it from the dugout the coaches got more trusting of me shaking it off.
And yes I do know some of the batters agianst me and i do use what i would use against myself.[/i]
