Do you see the lower righthand corner, which is the inside corner to righties and outside corner to lefties? Derryl Cousins decided that this was not a strike. By doing so, he forced Joba away from the lower portion of the strikezone all night. As the following chart shows, most of the squeezing was done with righty hitters at the plate, killing Joba’s platoon advantage:

Joba threw 7 pitches in the lower quadrant of the zone to righties, and 6 were called balls. Essentially, a few of the walks issued by Joba should not have been walks, and he may not have left as many balls up if he could trust that a pitch in the lower half of the strikezone would be called properly. Did Joba pitch well? He most definitely did not. But his erratic stuff was exacerbated by Derryl Cousins’ ridiculously small strikezone.
