Man, he loves that slider. 4 of his 5 outs last night were on punch outs using the slider. It sure sets up well when the batters are looking for the 100mph heat. I get the sense that he knows the bottom will drop out but that he’s not sure if it will tail in or out. If he could control that, he’d be nearly unhittable.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

His slider is nasty, but it seems that his FB is just straight as an arrow, no movement. If a hitter can time it, he can crush it.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

With two run leads. Challenge them with fast balls.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.
