Good article in the Trib today about how Covey's no longer afraid of attacking the strike zone. That's what I really like about him and Fry. Both trust their defense to make plays behind them and don't nibble. They just throw strikes. I hope Giolito takes note. I'd rather a pitcher be aggressive and get lit up then give up a bunch of free passes and allow hitters to feast on their 'get me over' stuff.

Do pitchers get paid by the number of pitches thrown or by their wins and loses?

A pitcher has to be told to be aggressive and attack the strike zone?
