I Kan't say I've ever been to Harrison, but I hear the Kountry up there is beautiful. Especially during the Fall when nature's Kolors begin to change. I dunno. Maybe the person who told me that was feeding me a line of Krap.

Everyone knows the Klan is in Lead Hill, and not Harrison.  Ever since Fed Ex moved there, the wealthiest people in Harrison are black.

He put the Marines on hold to put the Arena on hold to pitch and catch baseball?  This boy needs to pick a sport to fail at like the rest of us and get on with his life.

Mitch Mustain is putting his football career on hold.

To play baseball.

Mustain, the Springdale product who played at both Arkansas and Southern Cal, has signed a contract with the Chicago White Sox. He is expected to report to Glendale, Arizona for White Sox Camp next month.

It was in January that (I first told folks via Twitter) Mustain worked out for scouts from the White Sox. He was said to be throwing in the 90s despite not throwing since his sophomore year of high school in 2003-04.

“I’m confident I’ll get back in shape pretty quick for it,” Mustain told TV station KFSM. “They’re going to give me an opportunity to face batters and get my feet wet, no matter what happens. …

“I’m going to throw everything I have at it and see how it goes.”

Apparently the White Sox have a history of giving former quarterbacks a shot. Here’s more from CSNChicago:

The White Sox have a decade-long tradition of acquiring former college quarterbacks, for what it's worth. Joe Borchard played QB at Stanford, Josh Fields was a signal-caller for Les Miles at Oklahoma State and Clayton Richard backed up Chad Henne at Michigan.

Mustain, a USA Today/Parade Magazine player of the year in football, said that sport remains an option, but he wants to give baseball a try. He was set to play football with the Georgia Force of the AFL.

White Sox guys was saying they're pretty confident that with some work they can get his fastball in the 92-95 range.  Has a chance to be a solid reliever/closer.


We'll see, I guess.

Low-risk/High-reward

Without looking, I'll tell you he didn't sign for much at all. Signing is more of a formality. They want to work with him at spring training and really see what they think they can get out of him... then he has to work his way up through the system...  then, if he makes the big club, he'll get a pay raise based on effectiveness/league minimum/etc.

Why are people baffled by this? It's not normal to hop off a couch and hit 90. That's a valuable raw commodity that the White Sox have jumped on.

I would think that they may also be salivating at an elbow that hasn't been overworked either.

Exactly.

It's a low-risk investment plain and simple.

There aren't hundreds and hundreds of experience pitchers that can consistently throw a fastball 92 to 95 MPH.  Baseball team finds someone who can do that then definately they're going to give him a look.

No doubt.

Good for Mustain.  I'm happy for him, and hope it works out. 

If nothing else, it might shut some stupid motherfuckers up about him if he made a team and did some things.

Does Mustain have an agent? I've seen this guy in the news everyday for like 2 months. He has another appearance on KNWA tonight.

Exactly.  It's pretty rare for a pitcher to throw in the 90's.  Much less be able to do it with very little time training beforehand.

Mustain was royally fricked by the old establishment and he deserves every good thing that comes his way.

He will still have to show command. There are guys who can throw 95+ at 17 who end up only throwing 90-95 as they hit AA and higher because they have to sacrifice velocity for command. There also is the matter of what kind of "stuff" he has. You'd like to see some movement on his pitches so he isn't easy to make contact with. I wish the kid luck but unless he has absolutely filthy stuff, he will have really have to learn to be more of a finesse pitcher and keep batters off balance by changing speeds and displaying great command which will take a few years if it happens at all.

Well said.  You can throw 98 all day every day, but if you have no movement on it you'll get rocked.

Well I hope he gets called up and makes the World Series.

I hope they are down by 3 runs in game 7 and he comes in and saves the game.

I hope immediately after the game some dumbass reporter asks him how it feels and he looks directly in the camera and says "frick YOU HOUSTON NUTT YOU fricking IDIOTIC aMm FOR BRAINS MOTHERFUCKING NO COACHING NO RECRUITING BITCH ASS DORK"

Then walk away laughing.

I would be satisfied with that.

In what year did "control" become "command?"  You hear that all the time now.

Agreed.  But low 90's with extremely limited experience can quickly, and by quickly I mean a year or two, become high 90's with coaching and critique, even with command.  Movement can be taught to a point simply because of wrist movement and finger placement.  Yes I'm over-simplifying it a bit but I'm an damn optimist.   :thumbup:
