When Cain pitches, I can only recognize a fastball and a curveball. I've seen a change from him before, but don't remember him throwing any last night.

Pre-game comment starters based on that:

  1. Am I just not paying attention?
  2. Of the fastballs, I'm only picking up on a four-seamer. He mixes his speeds well, but I don't see any sort of sinker or two-seamer mixed in.
  3. I'm probably just not paying attention.
  4. For the most part, though, teams are flailing for six or seven innings against a pitcher who throws 70% fastballs. That's a spicy fastball.
