Bobby Parnell Finally Gets It
Dan Martin of the NY Post, had a quote from reliever Bobby Parnell who talked about why he didn’t make the team out of Spring Training last season and ended up starting the season with Triple-A Buffalo.
“I got caught up into working on my off-speed pitches too much instead of pitching and I had a couple of bad outings,” Parnell said at Digital Domain Park. “I didn’t really prove anything last year while I was here because I was too complacent in spring training. I felt comfortable about making the team and looking back on it, I was working on my pitches too much and not really pitching when I needed to.”
Parnell says that it will be different this time around and will be focused on simply getting people out.
That’s the spirit!
