In response to JimfromFlorida's comment:
What's the coincidence? it's a center field camera, shooting right down the middle of the field, pretty sure they have one at every ball park these days, anyone with eyes can look at the screen and see that he was getting WAY too much of the plate and less then steller hitters where making solid contact, yea, there was a check swing double and a fluke pop up, but that doesnt mean he pitched well, he pitched bad enough to be in bad situations and loose the game, it's real simple, if he pitches well they win the game, he was given a 3 run lead and couldnt get through 5 innings, he had a bad outing, deal with it.
Camera st the Trop is slightly off center not right behind the pitcher. I know of no park that the camera is directly in a straight line with home. It is one of the better ones though.
Thus you always get a skewerd perception of where the ball crosses the plate
I'm not saying the ball was directly in the absolute center of the plate, my point is he did not pitch well, he was getting too much of the plate, 9 hits in 4.1 innings, whats so hard for people to get about this? he pithed 2 good innings and fell apart, loaded the bases in the 3rd with one out, Middlebrooks made a nice snag on a ball that was hit hard right at him and lackey was lucky to get through that one with out giving up a couple runs, then he did the same thing in the 4th but he wasnt so lucky that time, and he started the same crap in the 5th when they pulled him, yes, there was a fluke hit, and a pop up that dropped in that should of been caught, but had luck been on his side and he made through 5 innings with the lead it still wouldnt change the fact that he didnt have his good stuff.
