So as you could tell by the box score from my last outing it was a struggle. I gave up four runs in the first inning and threw 31 pitches in the process. I then went 5 innings throwing only 54 pitches after that. The most upsetting part about the outing was that I was informed that I had reverted back to old mechanics. That is something that is unacceptable to me, and something that I will make sure to fix. Today I had a very good bullpen session in which we corrected those problems. Hopefully I can take them from the bullpen out to the mound. A few encouraging things from the outing were that I broke like 8 bats, unfortuanately a few of them were hits. And I also got better as the outing went on, which led my pitching coach to the idea that I need to do a better job before the game, in order to make sure that I am ready to pitch from the first inning.
So that is it for baseball talk for this post. One thing that I would like to talk about is reading. I am pretty sure we talked about favorite authors earlier this year. However, I just started reading this book that is awesome. One of the best reads so far. So without judging me, it is entitled The Electric Koolaid Acid Test and is written by Tom Wolfe. If anybody has any must read books please feel free to let me know.
Ok last topic before I take off, is the NBA playoffs, and more specifically the Celtics and Bulls. How insane was that series? I mean every game except for the one blowout was a great game. This is coming from someone who very rarely watches pro basketball and couldn’t even tell you every team’s starting line ups that are still left in the playoffs. But so far these games have ignited an interest in pro basketball. Anybody else that has an opinion feel free to reply.
Well thats all for now so until later,
