Jayson Werth ‘Could Do Algorithms’

Via Kilgore:

“Just because you can do something else doesn’t mean you can hit. If you can hit, you can do anything. Because it’s the hardest thing to do. There’s nothing harder. I can bake a cake. I could figure out a way to do algorithms. But a guy that knows how to do algorithms could never hit. It’s literally the hardest thing to do. If you can do the hardest thing, you can do anything else.”

Whoa.

  1. I personally hate the “hitting a fast ball is the hardest thing to do in sports” platitude. Just look at the obvious numbers, how many people can hit “a fastball” in MLB? I’d venture to guess a couple thousand people walking the planet could make contact? How many people/Quarterbacks can throw a pinpoint completion 40+ yards in the air into pro coverage? MAYBE 32 starting quarterbacks? How many people can score a takedown in Olympic level wrestling? Kick a 50 yard field goal? Numbers don’t lie.

    1. The completion % of those things is probably much higher than hitting a fastball. 50% of deep balls is awesome, now imagine someone that got a hit on 50% of fastballs THROWN to them……makes it seem a lot tougher. Or something like that.
