Quote:
Then there was the time, in another year, that I decided to write a piece about how Fregosi's pitching staff was leading the league in walks and walk ratio.

"Are you concerned," I asked, innocently enough, "about how much trouble your pitchers have throwing strikes?"

"What trouble?" he asked. "They throw plenty of strikes."

"Wait," I said, clearly looking for trouble. "Mitch Williams throws plenty of strikes?"

"Sure," Fregosi snapped. "Mitch throws strikes -- any time he needs to. 3 and 0, 3 and 1, 3 and 2 -- he throws plenty of strikes."
