我曾在過去的文章中談過:「打棒球的不一定懂棒球。」老看國內球評和教練的例子也是無趣,來看個國外的:

Q:Hey I’ve heard of guys like Terry Pendleton moving up in the batters box when facing sinker-ball pitchers in order to get to the ball before it breaks. Why don’t more guys move up in the batter’s box on Mariano Rivera? Seems like that would be the perfect way to guard against that quick cutter.

A:Moving up on Rivera would not work. His cut fastball sinks right over the plate. You should move up on sinker, curve ball and change up. You can't move up on a cutter because it just cuts too late. People have tried everything against Rivera’s cutter but he is just the best at what he does. You have to hope he makes a mistake.

回答問題的這位是MLB的名人堂選手,Big Red Machine的偉大二壘手,現任ESPN commentator的Joe Morgan。

該文中我寫的另一段:「甚至有時候為了要維護身為球員或教練的尊嚴,遇到不懂的隨便講講就是了,反正正有球員的身份護身,講什麼都對。」這句話跟上面的例子放在一起還挺適合的。再回頭看看網路上一些球評或教練擁護者到最後通常會出現的大絕招:「人家是『專業』教練,他們有他們的『專業』考量。」「你厲害你去當教練。」

球員和教練的「專業」身份的確很好用。
