About Me: I'm roughly about 112 years old, depending on my mood at the time in question.
I live in the rain state...which explains my winter moods.
Pro pitcher Bill Lee...minus the drugs.
...and I NEVER show ALL my cards.

Clay is now throwing 94 MPH.
He now has more margin for error. He was throwing 90-91 until Willis took over.
So, if he's to be judged, better to be judged from that point forward.

Posted 05/24/2015 01:17:50 EDT
