More from Washburn

One exchange I had to get somewhere but couldn’t fit in the paper.
This came from Jarrod Washburn after his solid outing today against Kansas City in the Mariners latest loss.
We asked him about putting an emphasis on throwing more inside to left-handed hitters.
Is that mechanical or mental? “Little of both. You tell yourself, ‘Don’t hit ’em. Don’t hit ’em.’ Then after you leave a couple over the middle of the plate, you’re like, ‘Screw it, hit ’em if you have to.’ Then you hit one guy.”” (He did plunk a left-handed hitter, Alex Gordon.)
What happened there? “Make sure this one’s in. He was looking over the plate and kind of got froze there. It caught a little bit of his arm there.”
Would you rather hit him good (joking)? “Yeah, if you’re going to hit ’em, I’d like to hit ’em square (also joking, we think). I don’t like the cheap ones — let ’em go to first on just a little graze.”
Is the mental part of your game something you’re focused on? “The biggest thing is always health. If I’m healthy, I’m successful, for the most part. When I’m not healthy, I try to battle through it the best that I can. You hope to be healthy.”
So there you have it.
