That's right. A Sunday game versus Pittsburgh is the most impt game so far this year. Because if Timmy struggles I start to think something is not right physically. And that is scary.
Personally, I think he needs to reestablish the fact that he has a plus fastball. That means first and foremost, throwing a lot more fastballs. His pct of fastballs thrown keep dropping. Tomorrow I hope he's around 60% fastballs.
I also wonder if he's trying to throw too many pitches. Fastball, curve, changeup is, i think sufficient given the quality of each of those three pitches. I don't think he also needs the slider. Plus I recall reading he was tinkering with the cutter.
Hell he's pitched great games with 90% fastballs and changeups. Right now simplifying things makes sense to me.
We need our Freak back tomorrow.
