1 quote found searching on Joseph Oden "Joe" Rudi

You hear pitching coaches talking about your rookies and they'll say, "This guy is going to be a real good middle-innings pitcher."... What it really means is you never get that fourth at-bat against a great pitcher. I used to have to face Jim Palmer in maybe three or four games a year, and the first two or three at-bats against him were tough, believe me. But the fourth time up I thought maybe I had a chance. Nowadays, that pitcher is out of the game by then and you're looking at a sinker-baller like (Dan) Quisenberry or a Jay Howell throwing gas. That good last at-bat is gone.
