According to Josh Kalk's PITCHf/x data (for which the information is a few days old), Jeff Clement has seen 37 changeups and swung through ten of them, while Jorge Campillo has thrown 87 changeups to lefties and gotten them to miss 18 of them. It's not hard to tell why, either; just look at this location. There's barely anything to hit. It's perfect.

So, yeah, considering the change is Campillo's big weapon against left-handed bats, this matchup may not be Clement's cup of tea. If he plays. I haven't yet determined how much I hate Jim Riggleman. hey neat

On a lighter note,
