Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I think he's got a lot of out pitches. They always say fastball command is most essential. But with that alone you're not going to be successful up here. You have to have more than one weapon to stay ahead of these guys. That's what makes him effective. He spots his fastball very well, he's got a curveball, a change-up and a cutter, and he can locate them all. He can throw any of them in any count. And he's very studious about where to throw the ball. He has a very good understanding of how to get people out. He doesn't make mistakes." - Arizona Diamondbacks Manager Kirk Gibson on AZCentral.com (Scott Bordow, 08/06/2011, 'Diamondbacks' Ian Kennedy just knows how to pitch', Source )
