    Bet he wouldn’t have in the NL. A little different when they can retaliate against you.

    Birdie must have forgiven the Dominican for his actions against "Zim."

    I do agree Pedro is a very good analyst. MLB Network is much better than ESPN's Baseball Tonight.

    Pedro gives the obvious that is when I understand what he just said. Guys like Smoltz on a different level.

    Smoltz is great, love watching a game he's announcing
    It's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chase

    Smoltz was a thing of beauty yesterday GM5. Stuff like, most fans don't realize a full count on a batter is a pitchers count, then Sanchez promptly strikes out with a pitch in the dirt. He also pointed out the long top9 was a detriment to closer Chapman who promptly walked the first batter btm9th. Good stuff.

    ump was very generous with Chapman in the 9th

    Favorite pitcher of all time.

    Pedro's analysis appeals to simpletons like Rail and Gabe.

    Smoltz is by far the better of the two.

    I like Smoltz and I also appreciate the Ivy Leaguer, Ron Darling.

    I picked up on the full count being a pitcher's count comment as well. The comment made me stop and think about it ... I had always considered it a neutral count, but after looking it up I saw that a 3-2 count yielded a probable batting average of just .190.

    Good stuff by Smoltz.

    I didn't see or hear Pedro's commentary last night but he's at his best when he's talking strategy and his approach to a hitter rather than game "analysis". He's kind of a goofball though and he plays that role up a little too much for my taste.
