One of this blog reader(Andrea) asked me did I watch Wang's last game?Yes,I watch almost every yankees games.Some of them I watch live games,others I watch after games finished.I did watched Wang's game.The only feeling I have about Wang's game is his ability of learning.It's pretty amazing for me to see how Wang have been doing so far this season.
As a Taiwanese,you guys pretty quitely understand why I crazily root for Wang no matter how he pitch.Be honest with you guys.I am not as unbiased as most yankees fans about everything of Wang.We all know Wang had amazing season last year.Most experts in many different media outlets keep expressing tons of opinions about Wang.They don't believe he can keep his success.We don't even have to go through about "ACE" topic.I am not going to go through this old debate and cliche again with you guys.
There are two aspects of success in the baseball game players have to take care of.One is physical aspect.The other is mental aspect.I am even going to go through the menatl part again.The reason for Wang's success so far is his sinker.It's easy for people to stay in the same way and comfortable zone which bring them success.Change means challenge.It's also not easy for people to keep learning.People tend to become more and more lazy.The most amazing thing for me about Wang this season is he is throwing more and more nasty slider and changeup.
Remember this,no scouts projected Wang's success before he came out.Diamondbacks didn't
want to take Wang and Cano for Randy Johnson trade in 2004.Remember this,no one expected Wang had immediate success in 2005.Remember this,In 2006,not too many people believe Wang could pitch like he did 2005.Remember this,Before 2007,a lot of people believe 2006 season is a fluke and question his "ACE" status.How good he can be?I don't know.We will see.I just hope Wang stays healthy.This is the only concern I have about Wang.
One thing I know for sure.Wang doesn't think he is an ACE.He just tries to get the job done everytime.He want to be great and love playing baseball.
