DALY: Pitchers still like to pull a fast one

“It’s a small crowd,” Hairston said. “Cliff Lee’s good at it. You find that guys that do it are pretty successful.”

As fate would have it, Lee is scheduled to be on the mound Tuesday night at Nationals Park for Game 2 of the Philadelphia series. So unless Hairston’s appeal is fast-tracked, he can look forward to getting quick-pitched for the second time in five days. In fact, he might want to start his swing right now.
