The Razzball Podcast – The One Where Grey And Rudy Cry

The news of Longoria’s injury broke (key word) just before we recorded this thing so you have to excuse our voices with the long faces.  We own Longoria everywhere.  (Rudy even owns him in the RCL, which brings me a very, very small ounce of joy.  And now Tom Milone doesn’t seem half as bad of a start against the Rays.  Rays, why do you scorn me?!  I’m so delirious with...

Tom Milone and the Scourge of a Weak Four-seamer

While velocity isn’t everything when it comes to being a successful major league starting pitcher, it’s surely a large part of the story. Starting pitchers who have a higher velocity — particularly on their four-seam fastballs — tend to have higher strikeout rates and induce weaker contact from opposing batters. And pitchers who can limit balls in play through strikeouts...

Oakland A's Prospect Profile: Tom Milone

Oakland A's minor league pitching coordinator Gil Patterson preaches fastball command - not velocity - as the most important aspect of any pitcher's arsenal. Tom Milone optimizes this philosophy. Not a hard thrower by any stretch, Milone has still dominated as a professional thanks to impeccable fastball command and a solid array of secondary offerings. We take a closer look...

Tom Milone and the Whole Velocity Thing

Because you’re the sort of person who would do such a thing, you’ve likely found yourself, at one point or another, having dirty thoughts about the major-league equivalencies (MLEs) for soft-tossing, and recently traded, left-hander Tom Milone. If, somehow, you’re not that sort of person, perhaps you’ve wandered to this site by accident. In any case, here’s a recap of...

Milone Goes To Oakland

One of the pitchers going from the Nationals to the Athletics in exchange for Gio Gonzalez is soft-tossing lefty Tom Milone.  Milone, who will be 25 in February, was a 10th round draft pick by the Nats in 2008 and has gotten by with excellent control (only 4.4% free passes throughout his MiLB career).  What might be turning some heads is that his strikeout rate, unspectacular in...
