Attention Rafael Chaves – for the love of God, please stop having Felix establish the fastball in the first inning by throwing 92-97 MPH heaters on every single pitch to the first 4 to 5 batters of the game.
The scouting report is out. Teams are aggressively attacking the fastballs that everyone on earth knows are coming early in the game, and they’re beating the tar out of them. Just consider a social experiment and establish the change-up in the first inning in San Diego, just to see how that works out for you.
