What is it about this series and sinkerball pitchers?
It was Tim Hudson in Game 1, Joel Pineiro in Game 2 and now Derek Lowe and (sorta) Tyler Chatwood today. I sure hope everyone watching today likes groundballs.
Me, I'm hoping that Derek Lowe's sinker works about as well as Tim Hudson's did on Friday. I have not stats to back this up, but I have always felt like the Angels get killed by sinkerball pitchers since the Halo offensive aggressiveness plays right into their hands. But that wasn't the case Friday and I really hope it isn't the case today because the Angels desperately need to keep building offensive momentum.
