Way to go Russ... more pitchers should have the "ganas" to pitch inside and even hit him for the dispicable displays he puts on after hitting a bomb. Russ Springer and Josh Becket get nothing but props from me!

Springer would be in the hospital if he did that to me. He (Springer) is a hamburger and has been a hamburger all of his career. When you're a major leaguer and you're AFRAID to pitch to someone and because you're afraid you drill him, you're a "wuss"!!!!!!!!!!!

(Cartman in South Park) How far did you get in your baseball career? When a guy like Springer throws at me, I have a problem with that...When he throws 5 pitches (one behind me and then one that hits me)at me, I'd go out and punch him in the face. Barry is too nice with mopes like Springer. I'm really disappointed in his teammates not doing anything. Of course,...

Pitchers work on location for their whole life and still have a hard time hitting spots in the zone. Where do they practice hitting the 5th rib? Springer just didn't have his control down. But, you have to give him credit for not giving up.

Re: Does this bother anyone else???

BeenthereIL ·
Randy... I'm stunned that you would write this and agree that he should have been drilled. He threw the 1st pitch behind Bonds. All of the rest were WAY INSIDE before he finally hit him. Had nothing to do with "control". He was throwing at him, simple as that. "...give him credit for not giving up..." Shame on you. I dont' care if you HATE Bonds. Best way to get back at someone: Giants 10-1; Giants 14-3; and, Giants 10-1. You go, Barry.

Re: The Count, What pitch do they throw

Texas1836 ·
Springer anecdotally talks about Halladay having two or three good innings throwing mostly fastballs, then giving up a double and immediately going to more sliders. That is the reason for my inquiry. My gut agrees but there are so many variables as you know. If there are no outs, two sac flies could score a run. If there are two outs, may stick to more fastballs.

Oh, great, a really good thread is back on target. For a moment I thought, with all the sister and brother stuff going on here, it was going to turn into a discussion of pro wrestling or an episode of Jerry Springer. For the record, I have a second cousin in pro wrestling. But I am not well-versed on the subject. Sorry, I just couldn't help myself.

I skimmed through the book, and noted areas for KD to read.

I was really disappointed by the Springer CD although he makes some valid points about having quality at bats versus focusing on avg. Some these ideas are really good, you would think there would be a Sabermetric stat or some other widely used metric for measuring the quality of an at bat.

Springer has some great things in that CD. It's not supposed to be a school book. It gives numerous ideas that are important about having a plan, being a great teammate, and playing for the right reasons. My guys have been listening to his CD for years before games and it absolutely gets them in the right frame of mind.

Re: Player Assaults Opposing Coach

Just found out that not only was this player not disciplined, he was allowed to stay on the team and play his next game. During which he got pretty physical with TWO players. One of those boy's brothers came off the bench and shoved the kid hard enough his feet left the floor and he hit the bricks hard because no one else was stopping him. This ended the game, which was already in the 4th quarter, but still... IMO, the officials certainly did not have control of either game. They're to blame...

My son listens to Springer all the time. Not sure his CD is for high school players and below so much. I don't think amateur players have to go up there looking for curve balls all that much unless they are down in the count. For professional hitters, the advice makes lots of sense because pitchers can pitch backwards ie., throw breaking balls in fastball counts and vis versa. I love his advice where he tells hitters to go up there looking for what you are going to "get" as opposed to what...

Nice post, Stanwood. The Steve Springer CD addresses a lot of what is posted on this thread. I liked it so much that I loaned it to a D1 dad who found it applicable and is taking it to his son (Soph starter) to listen to. It's about the process, not the here and now.

Hey y'all we have two more games before we play Red Oak. We have to get by these teams first. Don't count your chickens before the eggs are hatched. My sources in Ellis county are telling me that somebody is flying Jerry Springer in to throw out the first pitch and He is sticking around to do some filming for his new show.
