Ron Washington on Sammy Sosa

New, comments

Over on the Texas Rangers website, the Rangers notes from today include this quote from Ron Washington:

"I've read that people say all [Sosa] is hitting is fastballs," Washington said. "Well, if they don't want him to hit fastballs, throw something else. Every day he's been out there, he is showing some consistency."

Ummm...

Ron?

It is March 11.

I don't think the other teams care if Sosa hits fastballs right now. And I doubt that teams are going to have pitchers alter their throwing pattern to take advantage of Sosa's weak spots right now.

I imagine they'll wait until April 3 to start doing that...
