color me surprised.  7th inning vs. the roots.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

why? he has been doing that since he came out of retirement.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

you know, that's a good question.  i've seen him plenty of times but always been focused on location and "mound presence" when he is on the mound.  Never really paid attention to velocity.  would have guessed he was 89 or 90mph on a regular basis but good at spotting the FB.  maybe the mlb.com resolution is not so good.  or i'm just not that observant over the wire.

Happy Birthday JimR!
News that is sufficiently bad somehow carries its own guarantee of truth.  Only good reports need confirmation.

He loads up as a reliever as he's only going for a short stint.  He's been quite a revelation.
