The catcher is usually the smartest guy on the field and knows more about every batter's tendency than anyone else save the savant freak pitchers.

He goes up and tells guys to calm the fuck down, and also "hey man throw your fucking slider this guy chases shit low and outside on hitters counts"

Or: "hey did you enjoy that rbi double? fucking throw what I call instead of shaking me off"

Usually just does shit between games. Theyre usually in the bullpen far away during games anyway

Managers sometimes call pitches, particularly in HS/college but in the mlb it's pretty much the catcher's ballgame to call

Why is he calling anything? Pitcher should throw what he wants. He’s the pitcher

Pitchers are typically 85 IQ idiots with rocket launchers attached to their torsos

They dont know tendencies, they don't know what the guy has been swinging at (the last game, or earlier in the game for relievers), they don't know how the defense is set behind them, they don't know what the ump's zone is, etc.

Most importantly, they don't know how to pitch and sequence and bait batters, etc.

When you get to the Madduxes of the world things change

A pitcher plays every week. A catcher plays 5/6 days a week and sees the entire team they play against 2/3 times and bat 3-5 times each game.

Interesting. I would’ve thought pitchers have nothing else to do but prepare for the hitters they’re facing

They should, but refer to 85 IQ

Felix Hernandez was the best pitcher of say 2007-2017 but the guy can't write his name with a pen and it took a blogger to write a 25 page dissertation on why he shouldn't be throwing his four seam fastball 50% of the time to change his habits

https://deadspin.com/felix-hernandez-informed-by-internet-that-he-has-other-276042

All right, I initially highlighted the mischievousness of sports blogs to preface you all with some of the goodness sportsbloggery can achieve in life. The blog U.S.S. Mariner wrote an open letter to Seattle Mariners pitching coach Rafael Chavez, wherein he mentions how Felix Hernandez throws way too many fastballs, a chronic condition known as Farnsworth Syndrome. Well, Chavez showed the actual letter/report to Hernandez, who heeded the advice. And it worked.

Rather than establish his fastball by throwing it a ton, Hernandez mixed in a few breaking balls against the Oakland A's en route to an eight-inning, two-hit, zero-run effort. The A's won 4-0.
