Says Loaiza about the effects of WBC on his pitching for the Oakland Athletics:
"I'm still behind," said Oakland starter Esteban Loaiza, whose velocity has stayed in the mid-80 mph range since pitching for Mexico. "You look around baseball, and it's the same for a lot of the guys who pitched in the WBC. Their velocity is down."
Right. HE'D do it again.
- "It made it harder," Loaiza said of pitching in the WBC. "But I'd do it again. It was a great thing for baseball around the world."
I read these comments in a piece by Gerry Fraley, Dallas Morning News reporter, April 22 of this year. Something's happened--the State (MLB)
has taken control of all businesses AND the flow of all information.
- ONLY ONE POINT OF VIEW IS PERMITTED IN A TOTALITARIAN STATE, & you learn to shut up or you'll be slandered & attacked relentlessly, morning til night in all media by the many useful idiot sports reporters.
- LOAIZA IS SAYING--I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT--STEAL THE FANS' & THE TEAM'S MONEY, CHEAT MY TEAMMATES, ETC.
I'll take whatever time I want, be of no use when I return to the A's, but who cares? No one will stop me. If one team
owner says ONE LOUSY WORD, as one NY team's principal owner did, HE'LL BE SLAMMED
