Here is the thing: Everybody knows that Tito knows that Ellsbury never swings at the first pitch. So, Ellsbury knows that Tito is gonna call for a first pitch down the middle. But, Tito, knowing that everyone knows he knows that Ellsbury isnt going to swing, knows that Ellsbury is going to swing at the first pitch tonight, knowing that Tito knows he won't swing. So, actually, Ellsbury should lay off the first pitch, knowing that tito knows that he knows that Tito knows he won't swing. I say take the pitch.
"When you're hitting the ball, it comes at you looking like a grapefruit. When you're not, it looks like a black eyed pea." - George Scott in Baseball's Greatest Quotes (1982)
We've come a long way since the Boomer's grapefruit and black-eyed pea theory.
