The theory is that it’s much harder for a batter to pull an outside pitch.

“Tom, if you’re listening, in 2010, you said you were going to send me your jersey,” Marshall said in a message to Brady sent through Sporting News. “I asked after the game, and I Cheap Jerseys And Sunglasses asked if you would give me your jersey. You said, ‘I will but I can’t give it to you now. I’ll have our guys send it.’

“I never received it. So Tom Brady, I need the jersey, brother.”

Marshall sent his message to Brady during a conversation with SN on Tuesday after the receiver’s participation in the Gatorade Beat the Heat program for youth athletes in New Jersey. Now, as has been the case for years, he waits.

The league average in 0-2 counts is .164/.193/.252. That’s pretty putrid, but considering the hitter is four balls from a walk but only one strike from an out, you would expect such a slash line. Now hold that thought because here’s Bogaerts with two strikes: .302/.302/.476. This single approach shows up in his spray charts too. Aside from pulling ground ball outs, Bogaerts’ hits are mostly evenly spread around the field. Because the league is so focused on power, pitchers are focused on preventing power. They do this by pitching outside, outside, outside and also outside.

Your high school coach would love Xander Bogaerts.
