Brandon Cumpton Makes Real Art

It may not necessarily be the case that major-league debutant Brandon Cumpton‘s slider is an excellent pitch. It’s probably the case that it features too much lateral movement to ultimately prove very effective against left-handed major-league hitters.

What is certainly the case, however, is that a combination of Cumpton’s excellent placement of the pitch to Dodgers leadoff hitter Skip Schumaker and Pittsburgh’s excellent camera angle have conspired here to create either Art Eternal or Art Mostly Eternal.

Painted the corner

I would argue that the catcher framed a ball into a strike.

You’d be wrong.

That was a money backdoor slider that the catcher caught on the corner. No frame needed sir.
