"CLASS IS IN SESSION"
Lee Jenkins has a great story on Professor Rick and how he is the pied piper of the pitching staff. In just a few weeks, it seems the Professor has changed the mind set of the staff:
"We don't throw," Peterson said. "We pitch. We threw last season, and look where it got us. From now on, we pitch."
Ah yes the Art of Pitching and from the looks of things the Mets pitchers have taken to this philosophy like Trout take to spring water. The staff as a whole has cut down on their walks and in effect the earned runs are down for the spring. Not only that the young guys will take all they've learned to Binghamton and Norfolk where Jerry Reuse and Dan Warthen will continue with the Tao of Rick.
