    McHugh and LMJ were geeking out over him and talking about getting him on the podcast....

    I assumed that was why he did the McHugh one. LMJ is a Pitching Ninja regular. McHugh's slider is nasty, though.

    This was on my recommended video tab on youtube and I figured this would be a good place to post this. It's a review of what this guy considers the greatest pitched inning ever.

    That's great stuff, both JV and the guy who made the video.

    Should be re-titled "greatest pitched inning that I've seen that we have this data for, which basically covers the past 6 years or so".

    Fun fact: 3 teams have had an immaculate inning 6 times: Yankees, Dodgers and Astros. I could give yall 1962 guesses and you wouldn't name all 6 of the Stros.

    Fun fact 2: Wade Miley did it as a rookie

    RHP with some heat and a breaking ball...then add the change for LHB...those tend to be good pitchers.

    I would be shocked if Bukauskas isn't an awesome reliever this year.

    Everything gets a little more muddled when going starter innings comes into play, but he's pure filth.

    Coming out of of college, he was supposed to have a live fastball with an elite slider. Adding a plus-plus changeup makes him very interesting...

    It makes him a starting pitcher. Add in the cutter he's been incorporating and....

    He definitely can throw some great pitches, but trying not to get too optimistic until I can see him do it consistently and with some control.

    He'll be in the bullpen this year, because he has nasty sh!t. I see no reason why he can't be in the rotation next year.

    The worst is he takes a few AAA starts to figure it out, or maybe ends up in the bullpen for a couple of months.
