He should be suspended for at least 20 games.

Your mentions are a damn mess from this very logical, statistically based take. Shame on me for expecting better from the Twitter masses.

He came into the game averaging 1.15 hit batters per nine innings. Maybe not on fastballs to righties, but he hits a ton of guys.

Yes. Lefties on breaking balls because his curveball is insane and damn near impossible to command. It's also irrelevant in the McCann AB.

If you watched him with any regularity you'd know he has next to no fastball command. This is mindless. It was clearly an accident.

Jeff's point is about hitting righties, though. Only other RH he hit was Ryon Healy, with a knuckle curve.

Look at Betance's heat maps with FB vs. RH. He has had considerable command throughout the season.

I've seen every pitch he's thrown this year. He has better control with his knuckle curve than his fastball. Ask anyone who follows the team

In th the head? No way. He has control issues and you think he can pinpoint a fastball at the head? Nah. And no ones that evil.

If you read the column, you'd see I said that.

I didn't read the column I was just responding to the comments. I apologize.

The point is, he hardly throws the fastball inside to RHH. Less than 1 pitch per outing is thrown inside. If no control, you'd see more.

That's irrelevant to the fact that he rarely throws FB inside to RHH. The heat maps show how rare it is.

35 all season long. less than 1 per outing. I'm not saying he never does, I'm saying it's rare.

All 4 WPs have been down, up, or outside according to PitchFX. None inside. Even when he's really wild, he's not approaching the RH side.

Haven't said he doesn't have command issues. But his command issues seem to be outside vs. RHH, not in.

There are 35. If we want just up and in, it's 18. You're talking 2% of all the pitches he's thrown all year.
