    How did Tyson Ross go from scrub to stud ace?

    Guy was terrible with Oakland and ever since joining SD his numbers are stellar, how do you explain something like that?

    His numbers this year are lights out, but he doesnt get any recognition. Guy will get paid big time now.

    Takes some pitchers long to develop, moving to a different team helps a-lot sometimes. Different pitching coach can do wonders. Look at Kyle Lohse's career.

    I think it is partly his own maturation coupled with the teachings of Darren Balsley and Buddy Black..

    Padres also have the younger brother, Joe Ross, in their system. He is supposed to have more potential then Tyson.

    Its called Experience and Practice.

    If you work hard its difficult not to get better at anything.

    Same goes for sports betting.

    Do you guys attribute this difference due to the DH or is the AL just that much better than the NL

    facing the pitcher instead of a DH everytime through the order is a big difference over the course of a season..

    What would you know about hard work and working hard? Youre a 30+ year old bus boy and ex-telemarketer that spent hours and hours on the board while on the job. Instead of putting forth the best effort into your job and career you wasted hours here in the hopes of hitting 20 dollar 5 team parlays.

    Right, I agree with that. I was asking do people think thats the main difference or are AL hitters somply better than NL hitters? Kind of like how the west was to the east in the NBA for awhile

    Doesn't hurt to be pitching half of his games in one of the most pitcher-friendly ballparks
