    Strasburg heater has tail to it as well....

    Not to mention...99 to triple digit heat mixed with a 90(!) mph change that the bottom falls out of is the nastiest combo in the league...throw in that curveball and it's not even fair.

    Whoever has the most movement, that's what it's all about.

    If your fastball don't move it's gonna get rocked.

    Strasburg needs to slow down his change, but keep the movement.

    The better fastball doesn't really matter, to me it's about even. It's all about the pitches you throw before and after that is going to determine the total effectiveness of that pitch. Granted Strasburg could probably throw 100 fastballs a game and still render the same power pitching numbers, Jimenez's fastball is just so accurate and does the job he needs it to to do. Not to mention he's up around 95-97 Mph with his . Put that all together, a high 90's FB with sharp accuracy and it's just beautiful. On the other side of the discussion everyone wants to see a consistent plus 100 Mph pitch through 7 or 8 innings, it's incredible. Yet It's to early in Strasburg's season to really even compare him to the body of work Jimenez has displayed. Nor really compare pitches just yet.
