2018 Spring Training Notes in Fantasy Baseball Talk Posted March 20, 2018 3 hours ago, absknicks said: That was my immediate reaction as well. Big red flag for me. I suppose it could be that. But this reminds me of Chris Sale talking about his slider during the All-Star break last year. He said that he has two grips on the ball that causes two different slider movements. One grip causes a slower slider that he uses early in the count. The second slider has a tighter grip and moves quicker. The batter is deceived from the change of speeds between the two different sliders. He uses the quicker slider as his strikeout pitch. That demo blew my mind up. Hopefully, Fulmer is developing something along those lines.
