Texpope has, so far, written 4,695 comments and this was the latest, on Jacob deGrom:

deGrom has thrown 541 pitches so far this year - with an average velocity of 96.5 mph

I'll bet that there is a very large number of very good starting pitchers who didn't throw 541 pitches above 96 mph in their career.

Maybe the lesson here is that even though you can throw gas on every pitch - perhaps you shouldn't...  ?
