Greg Maddux on Strikeouts

Never try explicitly for the SO, he says: "[Maddux] was telling me, 'Don't every [sic] try to throw guys out. We want to try to get ground balls,'" [Scott] Feldman said. "He told me that's what he did. I was trying to throw as many strikes as I could, get ahead of guys. He told me strikeouts happen pretty much by accident, and that's what happened [Monday]. I guess there's a reason he won a lot of games." I hope Dave Eiland makes this one of his Eilandisms. - TL

Ptichers with ERA+ over 200 and 15 or fewer wins

This game is about personal and business, but business usually wins out. In this case, the personal stuff won out. He was able to work out the personal things and look what he's done as a pitcher.... He's a unique kid. People will say that some kid reminds them of Zack Greinke someday.... I see the athleticism of a Bret Saberhagen and the way he can back up that fastball to left-handed hitters reminds me of Greg Maddux. He has the best characteristics of a lot of great pitchers all rolled into one.... The thing that's really amazing about him is the touch he has for the baseball, the feel he has for the baseball. He can sense things a couple of hitters away. He loves competition.... I just want nothing but the best for him every day, except when he pitches against us, of course.
