I can't get the timing right on the super fastball. Do you click when his hat blinks, or right after?

I hit a blue one 730 feet. You have to wait until it almost hits the plate.

I've only made contact on two red pitches, neither for homers

Arrieta dealing with bone spur in arm

Arrieta also hinted that he lacked a feel for his pitches during the outing.

It was a contentious outing for Arrieta, who hit three Mets batters, including Todd Frazier, then challenged the New York third baseman in his postgame comments.

"If Frazier's not happy about it, he can come see me and I'll put a dent in his skull," Arrieta said.

He’s had 6 concussions. Don’t blame him. Hope for his career that he can play an adequate first base.

Speaking of Gurriel, Yuli has been on a ridiculous tear too. Since June 23, a streak of 11 games and 49PA, he has put up a .400/.449/1.0167 line with 9HR.

There is pretty much no universe in which his bat is adequate for 1B though, is there?
