Larry and everyone else - you do a phenomenal job here of breaking the game down. The community's consensus about Reyes vs. Duncan, 4 seamer vs. 2 seamer gets lost on many everyday Cardinal fans. But when guys like Bernie use some of Larry's analysis in a column (he doesn't give credit, however), it makes me realize how cutting-edge this blog is. Take a look at Bernie's Bits:
"I'm conflicted on the demotion of Anthony Reyes. No. 1, Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan has a proven philosophy (pitch down in the zone, get ground balls) and Reyes stubbornly resists it. On the other hand, not all pitchers are alike. Not all can fit into a particular mold. Reyes makes a lot of hitters swing and miss and appear overmatched when he throws that four-seam fastball up in the zone. Either way, it looks like the Cardinals have a trading chip."
Just thought I'd take a moment to express my appreciation.
Keep up the good work boys.
Oh, and by the way - if anyone has questions about injuries or rehab, just throw up a diary. Giving out free information is the least I can do, considering how much I get out of this site every day.
