Well this sounds just Rick Vaughn adding pitches to his arsenal. It worked great in spring training against guys that would be bagging groceries in a week, but in the regular season it sucked. I really hope in my heart of hearts that Justin will name the pitch the Eliminator.
I am sure this pitch will be nasty like all of his others, but I think it would hilarious to see this pitch get absolutely crushed nightly (as long as hes not on my fantasy team). We all know that JV is getting up there in age and adding pitches like this will keep him in the bigs for as long as he wants to do it.
The Astros are still loaded, so even if JV’s changeup allows 4 runs a game the Stros will score 5. Its hard to see the Astros losing many games with in the division. They have the top 3-5 pitchers in the AL west on their team.
If Joey Gallo jacks this changeup over the wall JV better let him name it.
