September 21, 2017 – Brewers v Cubs

Here’s an excerpt of today’s post, a quick preview of the weekend’s crucial Cubs-Brewers series:

[Zach Davies is] a soft-tossing righty, but his command is elite, and he’s stayed ahead of the adjustment curve by using his literal curve more often in the second half.

Indeed, he’s a true four-pitch pitcher right now: sinker, cutter, changeup, curve. None of the four are even above-average offerings. It’s been command and unpredictability fueling his success, but if you have enough of both those things, you can still be really good. Really, that’s the Brewers’ 2017 in a nutshell: they’ve improbably found the depth to remain ahead of the league’s adjustments to them.
