Chris Young's pitches sneak up on you...


Quotes by Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger:

"The magic trick begins when Mets pitcher Chris Young raises his left leg and tucks his hands behind his knee. It ends when he lunges his 6-10 frame toward home plate and releases a fastball from his right hand."


"The radar gun provides one reaction: Middling velocity, something around 87 mph. Opposing hitters have another: They call it the “Invisiball.”

Jose Reyes Quote:

“He doesn’t throw that hard,” shortstop Jose Reyes said. “But the ball gets to you quickly.”
