Jeff made Lookout Landing a thing, but he does not still write there about the Mariners. He does write here, sometimes about the Mariners, but usually not.

Would love a follow-up about “command” vs “control” for pitchers. I’ve seen a distinction made on this blog a couple times, and I’ve always felt like an idiot for not knowing the difference.

I feel like I’ve seen ‘command’ referred to in regard to the actual movement on a pitch and ‘control’ would be a location issue.

I’ve seen them defined as control = ability to throw strikes; command = ability to locate pitches within the zone. Its really just nonsense scouts speak.
