No Respect….


From Tom Verducci at SI today:

The key for the Rays is that they have five starting pitchers between ages 24 and 28 with smooth deliveries who pitch off their fastball — all good markers for holding up over the course of the season.Wade DavisMatt Garza ,David Price and Jeff Niemann, for instance, rank 6-7-8-9 in the league for greatest percentage of fastballs. And Scott Shields (4-0) is nearly as aggressive. The Rays’ starters are 17-3 with a 2.51 ERA — and had extra rest for 18 of their first 28 starts.

Scott??? James is 2nd in the AL in strikeouts and a national writer with the stature of Verducci makes this kind of mistake? Not to mention, Scot Shields of the Angels has to be offended Verducci could not spell his name right either. Score this one a two-base error on the press box.
