If Keith Woolner and Tom Tippett haven't knocked that theory around enough, for once, I'll listen to a player:
"Some pitchers think that you've got to throw every pitch to make the hitters miss it," Hentgen said. "Then you realize that ground-ball outs are easier, faster, more efficient. You can stay in the game longer. Teams are so conscious now of the 120-pitch plateau, so complete games are not as common as they used to be. I just think an out is an out and when you realize that you become a better pitcher."
