Pitch F/X had ball 1 to Werth practically down the middle.

Wiggled off the hook again. Too many pitches for Demp thus far.

Thanks again, Jayson Werth!

Dempster's had 4-5 pitches called balls where pitch f/x disagreed.


The system they are showing on the TV appears to be agreeing with the ump.

He got screwed by an error and what appears to be a tight strike zone.

I swear I was just thinking the same thing. Year1 of his contract and the Nats were regretting it already. Year2 may be worse.

The TV pitch plotters have a habit of not disagreeing with the call.

I think he's just not giving the close ones to the pitcher. And for entertainment purposes alone I hope umps don't call close balls strikes just for the fun of it.

It would be nice if Dempster got the close pitches like Strasburg just did on strike 1 to Soto.
In Theo we trust.

I'm not sure how accurate we can assume the pitch f/x people are either.

Either way, they haven't looked egregious.

He's actually had some good years but he seems like he just has a terrible approach to hitting. He seems like a lefty version of Soriano where he can look a lot worse than he really is.

Along with my irrational hatred for LaRoche, I have the same irrational liking of DeJesus.

He's responsible for half of the Cubs offense this year. It's not irrational. :P
