4th-best ERA in MLB despite being second to last in K rate. Keep in mind it wasn't too long ago that they thrived following that mantra. wins-fix-pitching-without-changing-rotation

This takes us back to those first two inside fastballs that Santana threw this season. At the start of spring training, Allen told all of his pitchers that they would be pitching inside with greater frequency, both for strikes and for effect, that throwing strikes with the four-seam fastball was a high priority, and that theyd be pitching up in the zone as well.

This was emphasized during spring training side sessions, where pitchers wouldnt be allowed to do anything else until they executed Allens plan.

"We know that the inside fastball is very effective," Allen said. "The balls on the hitter a lot quicker. Were doing it more this year. It has to be done. Last year, we went down and away more than we should have. Weve got to control the inner-half better."
