2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener RoundtableVote for the best commentary today: Reds radio announcer Chris Welsh made a comment regarding Reds rookie RHP Logan Ondrusek. Welsh commented that part of what makes Ondrusek so effective is that he has an incredible stride towards home plate. Ondrusek, who is about 6'8" has a huge stride towards the plate, thereby increasing his perceived velocity from 96 mph to close to 99 mph. Very reminiscent of the research shown by Eric Seidman last season.

And people said that Sabermetrics would never catch on. Hey wait a minute, has anyone ever seen Eric and Chris Welsh in the same room? (Russell A. Carleton)
