100 MPH Fastballs Are No Match for Dom Brown, Says Dom Brown

Basically, at this point, we’re just hoping the Spring of Dom turns into the Summer of Dom.

Jim Salisbury has another good piece today on the confidence the Phillies young slugger has built up this spring. Not even a 100 mph fastball intimidates him.

“In my mind I don’t feel like a pitcher can have enough stuff to get me
out,” Brown said. “Even if they’re throwing 100 mph, I feel I can turn
it around.”

Drool. So damn good to see the kid with this kind of confidence after the struggles he’s been through in the past.

Yeah, yeah, spring numbers, all that. Can’t we just be excited? Go read Sully’s take to put it all in context.

But damn. Dom’s certainly giving off the impression that his time is now.
