  • Why has Morris lost so much velocity?

    The year he won 22 he was hitting 94-97mph on a regular basis. It seems like now he tops out at around 91. His control wasn't there yesterday and without that extra juice on the heater he couldn't blow one by anyone. This is pretty alarming to me.

      How does being a head case make you lose velocity?

        Perhaps he's too Metro?

          His velocity hasn't been the same since last May. There's a pretty good reason for it too.

            Did Morris actually hit 97?

            Post TJ surgery, I mean?

              Yes, but it was when he was coming in to throw an inning or two of relief. He was just letting it go, knowing he didn't have to worry about endurance.

              When he's going well, he'll hit 93 consistently, even late. It would never dip under 90.

              I saw too many 88s and 89s yesterday.

                    I think maybe he is just developing into a Maddux type junkerballer that still needs to learn the craft more, and could have late success when he figures is out, a la Jaime Moyer.

                      He's going to need to keep that sinker down at all times with that reduced velocity.
