About

Amateur baseball two-way pitcher/shortstop, car enthusiast, technology whizz, Inkitt author, Die-hard Arizona Diamondbacks fan. Currently, in Kajukenbo, I rank as an orange belt prepping for the purple test. Drafted into new sport, American Cricket, with the UnSACA I play returner, akin to a catcher in baseball.

My Strategy for reviewing a question/answer before downvoting it:

  • Read it over one more time, maybe I'm the one who's wrong.
  • Research the answer myself, see what I come up with. If it checks out, leave it as is.
  • Ask myself: Is it really worth downvoting? If a question gets a score of say, -10, and is not or cannot be deleted, it can stick around as a stain on a user's profile for a looooong time.
  • I just straight up don't vote on anything with a score of -5 or lower. The point has been made already, no reason to downvote it more.
  • The only exception to the rule above is if the post is blatant spam/ad, or if it's rude, offensive, deliberately insulting, etc. Then, after a downvote, I flag it.

20 (Gonzoles) 51 (Johnson) 42 (Robinson)

Some of my favorite things:

  • Food: Japanese food.
  • Car: tied between Ferrari 250 GTO and Ferrari LaFerrari
  • Baseball player: Zac Gallen
  • Minor League Team: Quad Cities River Bandits (High-A), Montgomery Biscuits (Double-A).
  • Book: Anything that I wrote.
  • Quote: "You never know who will see your images hanging. And I like that. I think you never really have control over the things that you do." -Luis Gonzalez
  • Number: 0. It is my jersey number. It is also technically the first letter of my last name.

Current pitching arsenal:

When throwing almost sidewinder

  1. Cutter
  2. 4-seam fastball
  3. Circle Changeup
  4. knuckle-curve (mine's an absolute hammer!)

When throwing Overhand: All of the above... plus:

  1. Splitter
  2. Knuckleball
  3. 12-6 curve

I throw almost sidewinder with the bases clear. With runners on base, I throw overhand to reduce delivery time in case of a steal. What I mean by almost sidewinder is sort of a less exaggerated Ryan Thompson.
