The Quote of the Day for Monday, October 19, 2020

There are a lot of good-looking young pitchers. But there's a real dilemma. The sooner you promote a young pitcher -- as soon as you do that, you run the risk of retarding his development, because pitching is an art. And you have got to practice that art to learn to understand it. That's why some guys don't get it as far as changing speeds until they're 27, 28, 29, 30, 31 years old. Sometimes the answer to a situation is to go softer, not harder. Most young guys have the (necessary) stuff. Their stuff gets hit, they lose confidence. Maybe they change how they throw. They get hurt. That's one reason so many young pitchers get hurt. They're not ready.
