The Jacket: Live!
The Professor himself joined Gary and Ron in the booth in the bottom of the 3rd inning. He educated and inspired much as one would expect.
Rattling off stats, talking about the process of the outcome but not the outcome of the process, BABIP on pitches down in the strike zone - and why couldn't he fix Victor Zambrano?
"I don't know if anyone can tell me who won the first 2.5 miles in a marathon!"
"Fear, worry, and doubt start to enter your psyche"
"Our guys are professional glove hitters."
Bottom line - The Jacket is smarter than you...and he knows it. Victor Zambrano? - no problem. Nelson Figueroa? - no problem. Jose Lima? - everyone has their limits.
