Brady Anderson: Matusz is ‘a different human’

HALF-MAN, HALF-BEAST…BUT ALL ORIOLE!

Half

Orioles Hall of Famer Brady Anderson, making his first appearance since being appointed special assistant to executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette, said today at FanFest that the difference between Brian Matusz a year ago at this time and Brian Matusz today is the difference between night and day.

“He’s like a different human as far as his mentality and his dedication and the raw numbers, what type of athlete he is, he’s not the same,’’ Anderson said of the left-hander.

...Also, if you’re not strong mechanically, you’re going to break down. Think about what they do for a living. Think about what pro athletes do for a living. You can’t do average things and expect to be extraordinary.”
“You’re asking a guy who’s 6-2, 190 pounds who throws the ball 190 miles per hour. You’re talking about very, very elite people and you train like an elite athlete.”

Good, because the old human was crap.

As a baseball fan who likes to see talented baseball players playing their best, my reaction to this is, "I don't give a #### about his newfound human identity, what's the deal with his fastball? Is it back or what?"

Is the new human in the best shape of the old human's life?

Luckily Wieters is the only human alive who could catch that pitch.
