The Bad #2 – the results of bad fastball command
This lack of command can, on occasion, make Brothers more hittable. That starts with occasions where he gets too much of the plate with a fastball, as is the case on this game-tying home run from Chase Headley.

And if the hitter doesn’t need to fret about Brothers’ fastball because he is spraying it around, his slider becomes at least a little more hittable. In those rare instances there is even a chance for the opposing team to enjoy the boundless joy of the walk-off victory at Rex’s expense.
