NO curveballs...I'm old school...fastballs and changeups...and he hates to throw a changeup. Hell his heats so good it never matters anyhow...and to tell the truth I called a couple of changeups last year and they got hammered. He was so pissed at me, he refused to let me call anymore pitches for him...even though I was the designated pitching coach...

He's a tough hombre on the mound!

He sounds like it. My Dad taught me a change up before any other pitch....and, if you can manage to thorw a decent one, it's devastating. I still think those are the 2 best pitches to have, at any level, if you can locate them. Just ask Maddux or Johan Santana or Pedro. Trevor Hoffman too. A good change is devastating.

I love when I go back to NY in the spring and watch the children of my old friends play little league....really fun to watch. Fun out here, too, but since I actually played LL with the Dad's of these kids, it's more impactful when watching back home.

My son has huge hands and feet for his age and size, so when's physically mature enough to throw a curveball, it's going to be a killer. He can throw sweet one now...but we only throw 2 a session if we throw any. But he doesn't need to throw any breaking pitches, 'cos he throws a two-seamer, a four-seamer and a cut fastball. Now whether he really mixes his fastballs up in a game is debatable, but he can throw them all for strikes. However if he's cruising he'll go with what's working for him and throw nothing else. This year he moves up with the big boys, so it'll be interesting to see how he does.

Hey guys!

Was watching parts of Vertigo Chicago tonight after ages and realized that I never really paid too much attention before to the "classics" mid-section SBS, BTBS, RTSS, Pride, Streets, One. Pretty good although slow and dragging in parts.

You need to keep me updated on how things go with him moving up a level. He sounds like Maddux, this kid, with the 3 fastballs and the change....that's really all Maddux ever used.

RB, good night, and, Reg, I'm out, too, so goodnight to you, too.

'Night NSW!!

Zoots, this DVD is beautifully filmed, but is not the best performance I've seen...the Slane DVD is the best so far. However the sound and picture are

RTSS sounded kinda odd during the last tour...I dunno why

I have not watched that for a while now. RTSS is probably my favorite of that bunch, or, at least, my favorite of that bunch from that show. SBS is a song that I dearly love, but, now, live, it's like glorified karaoke to me....I put Rattle & Hum on sometimes and watch that SBS and I'm like "Man, I wish they played the song with that power now", though, to be fair, they were extra emotional during that rendition due to the bombings and such.

Streets will never bore me, ever.

ETA - Reg, it's hard for me to leave the thread if actual U2 talk is gonna go down.

RTSS is my favorite of that bunch too! Beautiful rendition coming close to Zoo TV or any other good version. BTBS was pretty weak. Streets was not bad but the lights should've been brighter for God's sake!

G'night to whoever's leaving.

Hi Thora if you're still here.
