Pitcher Dave Stewart Strikes Out As A Blogger

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Former major league pitcher Dave Stewart is now striking out into the world of cyberspace.

Stewart – who holds three World Series rings from his time with the Oakland A’s – is now blogging about baseball at

His page is called “Throwin’ Heat,” and Stewart says he wants to use the page to explain certain aspects of baseball that he believes he understands better than people who haven’t played professionally.

For instance, even though there’s been increased use of relief pitchers in recent years under the belief that it saves pitching arms, Stewart predicts there will be a return back to the days when starting pitchers completed more games and pitched more innings.

Stewart says the increased availability of sports statistics on the internet has made for more informed sports fans, but says he wants to touch on “the intangibles” that don’t always show up in the stats column.

But that doesn’t mean Stewart will shy away from stats. Recent columns had him discussing which current home run kings have the best chance of being first round Hall of Famers.
