Scott Olsen Math

Remember way back in algebra class when you had to compute velocity in those "real world" problems?

Well Scott Olsen is on the verge of a real world problem...that's if his fastball continues to decline in velocity. Ever since that started happening, he's been knocked around. He went from low 90's to upper 80's to mid 80's. Mid 80's has been synonymous with getting shellacked, so we don't want that.

I won't lie. I'm terrified of his first fastball, because it should tell the whole story. Fish Stripes put his barometer at 87 mph. I'm going to go up to 88. Much like Back to the Future, he'd better hit 88 or he won't be seeing much of the future...that being, past the third inning.

Fingers crossed.
