Jansen's cutter is 94-96 on average. When Miggy came up, he started throwing 98-99...so I think he was throwing a 2-seamer, not a cutter. But I could be wrong, maybe he just really geared up the cutter? Either way a 99 MPH cutter would have as much time to cut.
I think this strategy was okay for Miggy, because he is such a unique hitter, I think you have to take an unorthodox approach. I recall Miggy could hit Mo Rivera well, so maybe he can hit cutters better than most people. The result was a K so it worked.
But then when Victor Martinez came up, he didnt go back to the cutter...which should be more effective against lefties...correct? He kept throwing that 98-99 MPH fastball. He went back to the cutter the following batter and got the final out.
Why didn't he throw his bread and butter to Victor?
