On every single full count last night, SS pitched a "chaser"

outside the zone one would think at some point, to take a chance and make the pitcher throw a strike after 4-5 cubs chased the ball into the dirt. It got comical that every single person around me was guessing the right pitch and the outcome (Chicago chasing the ball out of the zone).....

At some point, you let your batter take one and if its a ball, you get one base with a walk, if its not a ball its the same result as swinging away on a pitch that wasn't a strike. You send a message that you are not chasing everything and that you are going to be a little more disciplined.....

Nationals made the cubs pitch when they had 2 strikes which resulted in more walks, the cubs didn't do that with SS.....
