It ain't easy.On a side note, I watched both bullpens warming up and one of the orioles pitchers had a helluva a curve. I was in between him and the catcher about 5 feet away and that curve was just plain unfair as he had that bastard waist high looking like a nice, juicy fastball and it dropped off the table....may have been a sinker for all I know, but how the fuck do you lay off something at that speed when it looked like a great pitch to hit until about 3/4’s of the way there......
You can try to pick up the spin but you have less than 1/2 second to do that. And you can't sit on the curve because you'll never catch up to the fastball.
It's difficult. Unless - you know - someone tells you what's coming. If that were to happen, hitting gets much easier.
