  1. Nice writeup, Lucas. It’s looking more and more that the 2 seam/cutter is becoming a very popular fastball setup. I think it’s something that Halladay is breeding by example. What were Williams’ most effective pitches yesterday? Were his Ks swinging or looking?

  2. His two-seam fastball had movement that reminded me of Scot Shields, but with a little less crazy good movement. He did a nice job.

  3. I remember Williams from his first go-round with the Giants. High 3/4 release with a decent amount of downward bite on his pitches. I don’t know if he still does it, but he had a pretty wicked pick off move, too. I wish him the best in Anaheim – he seemed like a nice kid. Does he still wear the puka shells?

  4. Failed Giant pitching prospects from a decade ago are the new market inefficiency.

  7. Never thought I’d hear that name again. Good luck, Jerome.

  8. Thanks, William.

    The cutter looked like his most effective pitch – he got ten swinging strikes on it yesterday.

  9. You are correct. Fixed.

  10. Jerome’s mother died quite young early in his 2nd season (if I recall), he seemed to deteriorate after that, got traded & his weight boomed.

    I was fearful for his well-being far beyond baseball. Really good to see him back. He’s still young.

  12. When I heard he got called up I was basically saying “meh” but after seeing his start….his stuff was pretty good in all honesty. I liked his changeup and the slider looked good to.

  13. I was a big fan of the Giants pitching prospect trifecta of Jesse Foppert, Jerome Williams, and Kurt Ainsworth when they first came up. They all had so much promise. Of the three, Williams had the most success in the majors, but all three fell apart so spectacularly. Good to see Williams, at least, is still hanging in there.
