Re(1): #338 - Cortadas (coming and going)?

Posted on February 4, 2010 at 04:38:27 PM by Jim

All I can say is the cortada used to be a shot you seldom saw thrown, because the play of the games were so much stronger than they are in today's game, overall. Now, you can see a cortada thrown 3 times in a game...maybe even 20 or 30 a day, and still, not even half score. The players are so looking for that shot...half the time, it's thrown so obviously, and WAY too hard, that the backcourter easily gets to it.
