Pomeranz discussing why he had eleventy billions walks against LSU last week and began his appearance in Starkville out of rhythm:
“I was just doing something with the ball in my glove (before he threw each pitch). It was throwing my rhythm off just a hair. I wasn’t keeping the ball in my glove (right before he delivered a pitch), which was causing my arm to drag just a bit. Once I kept everything still, it made everything click back into rhythm. I knew it was something stupid like that. I laughed at myself about it.”
It's amazing how thin the line is that can determine whether a guy on the mound looks like Corky Thatcher or a projected top 10 draft pick.
The whole "Omaha" thing notwithstanding, the above is the reason I try not to allow myself to get too worked up when we lose a game. Baseball is one fucked up sport.
