As a follow up to the GR post on Manny being Manny et al. I submit the next (soon to be) tired phrase in baseball circles. It seems every broadcaster, commentator, and intreviewee can't help but comment on how the Asian ptichers "pitch backward." It really is annoying. The Asians have always thrown more breaking pitches. I swear there are things that people say just because I think they like the way it sounds. Or they think it makes them look smart and intelligent.
