Spring Training Week 3: Control problems

The only "true" outcomes a pitcher can exert a measure of control over, according to sabermetric wisdom, are walks, strikeouts and home runs. Even this might overstate the case, given the constant threat of injury and low margin for error that pervades everything a pitcher does and allows small glitches to become big problems.

Spring Training Week 2: Pondering the pitching

The mantra last week was "no injuries," but sure enough the bug bit in Week 2. Either I have a horrifying new jinxing power or spring attrition is simply something teams can only hope to contain. As of press time, we don't have a clear prognosis for Willis or Cueto. Both expectedly downplayed their injuries, with Willis stating his intention not to miss any time at all.
