Juan Uribe a Genius???

I updated the post to add his 2008/2009 homers for good measure.

2008 White Sox:

04/29/08: 75 mph
05/08/08: 90 mph  Slow tee ball location fastball.
08/14/08: 82 mph
08/17/08: 78 mph
09/05/08: ??????  Gun said 90 but the pitch was a curve ball from Dustin Moseley. I would guess it was around 79 mph based on how fast his curve ball was going in 2008.
09/05/08: 77 mph  Two in one game from pitches at about 78 mph. Dumb ass Angels.

Alexei! Yes! Uribe only had 353 plate appearances because he was hurt for a part of the season and lost playing time to Alexei Ramirez.

2009 Giants:

06.29.09: 84 mph
07.07.09: 98 mph  WTH off of Josh Johnson. I'm speechless. The catcher set up inside but Johnson threw it down the plate.
07.09.09: 79 mph
08.18.09: 85 mph
08.25.09: 88 mph
08.26.09: 80 mph
09.02.09: 74 mph
09.05.09: 84 mph
09.07.09: 88 mph
09.07.09: 95 mph  Liner to center field.
09.13.09: ??????  Gun says 90 but the pitch was a curve ball from Chad Billingsley. I would guess it was around 83 mph based on how fast his curve ball was going in 2009.
09.23.09: 86 mph
09.26.09: 83 mph
10.02.09: 86 mph

I present to you Juan Uribe's 2010 homer runs:

04/18/10: 87 mph
04/19/10: 84 mph
05/01/10: 81 mph
05/15/10: 85 mph
05/20/10: 87 mph
05/26/10: 87 mph
05/29/10: 85 mph
06/04/10: 88 mph  LOL he seemed a little late on it so he hits it to center field when all the rest but two are pulled.
06/08/10: 81 mph
06/13/10: 85 mph
06/16/10: 85 mph
06/25/10:   FAIL    Tim Wakefield knuckleball
07/24/10: 92 mph  A liner that just barely clears right over the 376' mark at hitter friendly Chase Field in Arizona.
07/27/10: 89 mph  Appears to be a fastball up in the zone.
07/30/10: 78 mph  A big looping curve ball he very nicely waited on. I wonder why?

08/25/10: 89 mph  Appears to be a fastball.
09/04/10: 86 mph  Mike Krukow: "Wow, the first breaking ball that Broxton has thrown out of fourteen pitches..." 09/05/10: 86 mph
09/09/10: 91 mph  It's a fastball, and what do you know it's a liner hit to center field. He does the "jazz hands" but then sprints out of the box not knowing if it's gone or not.
09/23/10: 83 mph
09/23/10: 87 mph
09/28/10: 77 mph
10/02/10: 86 mph
10/23/10: 89 mph  Outside pitch taken to right and going no more than what seems like 350' at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
10/27/10: 86 mph


In conclusion, Juan Uribe is not a genius but that MLB pitchers seem to be idiots.
Challenge him inside and outside with hard stuff and throw unhittable low and away slow stuff and he's fucked. No more "jazz hands for you Mr. Uribe.
I'm pretty confident that if pitchers follow through with this game plan, Ned Colletti will be looking like a fucking idiot.
