Technology... evolution

Four people have viewed this page this month with their Nintendo Wii. I find this information quite relevant.

The Nats start their annual trivial Parkway crapfest with the Orioles this weekend. This will allow the Mid-Atlantic region, via the power of MASN-HD extended coverage of Matt Stairs, likely serving as the designated hitter. Enjoy!!

Juiced Guns

Last night I caught Drew Storen's 9th inning. Very solid. What surprised me most though were the velocities the radar was throwing out. 97, 98, 97, 100! I was curious and went to Pitch f/x to consult.

Storen has been throwing rockets, but last night he topped out at 97, mostly sitting around 95. I guess we can add Turner field to the long list of juiced radar guns (see, Great American Ballpark). I like that he can reach back and find that extra juice (even though it got hit 390 feet), but Storen isn't the second coming of Billy Wagner... yet.
