MLB Handicapping: Life in Coors Field remains difficult task for pitchers

05.13.2016     06:33 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Good article on how difficult it is for pitchers, particularly young ones, to adjust to life in Coors Field. Imagine trying to get batters out with a breaking ball that barely breaks.

"The first guy, the first two guys who have to pitch after a road trip, that's tough," Butler said, "because you were throwing in dense air where the ball moved a lot and then your first day throwing here, you have to make it happen on the mound."

"Physics was always fun for me, talking about mass velocity and the change of it," Butler said. "We pitchers understand physics. We can't always put it into words — but we understand it because we deal with it day in and day out."
