I mean how much more uncomfortable can this guy look as the closer in the 9th inning? Ths is why he has such a difficult time hitters pick up on this and wait for him to throw strikes which he only seems to throw when he is behind THE HITTER. i JUST THINK HE NEEDS TO STOP ALL OF THE MOVEMENT AND WIPING HIS HEAD AND WALKING TOWARD THE BACK OF THE MOUND. I NEVER SAW MO DO THIS.

Just how many "Mo's" do you think there are? There are many reasons why Mo was the best ever. His preturnatural poise was among the most important. It's hard to fault Betances for not being Mo, and I don't think it's reasonable to expect him to be the same as Mo.


He's Betances, and that's pretty good, even if he isn't Mo.

If you knew how to read and comprehend you would certainly understand I was not comparing him to MO. Just stating that I didnt see MO or any other reliver for that matter Miller, etc. go through all of the various movement and quirkiness that Betances goes through. He is obviously quite uncomfortable out there and it shows and hitters pick up on this.

Wow!  I'm speechless.


I think the only ones uncomfortable are the hitters

He's 4-1 with a 1.37 ERA and 68 K's in 30-something innings you jack off. And you complain about how he walks around the mound? That's a special kind of stupid.

Actually, I did read and comprehend your last sentence where you DIRECTLY compared him to Mo.


Different closers work differently, and many of them have unusual tics, mannerisms and routines. Al Hrbowsky, to pick one extreme case.

Since June 10th, when Miller went on the DL, Betances had the one 4-run blowup for a loss in a non-save situation against the Phillies. Otherwise, he's pitched 5 games, and is 5 for 5 in save conversions. In those 5 games, he's pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowed 2 hits, 0 runs, 4 BB and has struck out 8, which is pretty much in line with what he did before.

Here's some more numbers for you.


He' 7-8 in save situations. 8.0 IP, 5 Hits 2 runs, 13 K's, 3 BB


Yeah that's not quite as awesome as his 1.13 ERA but it's pretty GD good and right on par with his 14.5 K/9


Not sure what your point is. It's his second season as a pro and he's filling his idol's role that he grew up watching and doding it better than 99% of the other closers in the league. You will complain about anything.
