The Closer: TGIF version - The Max Info Blog - ESPN:
"Why Rockies Starter Jorge de la Rosa Won:
- Threw first-pitch strikes to 75 pct of hitters (56 pct in ’09).
- Allowed 27 pct of swings to be hit in play (38 pct in ’09).
- Of 9 swings against his slider, 0 were put in play.
- Retired the leadoff hitter in each of his 7 innings."
This really offers no predictive value. Informatio on whether de la Rosa consistently does this would be more useful.
