Norris only misses when he wants to miss

In Zach Levine's Notes Column we find that Bud Norris only misses on his pitches when he wants to miss, whereas previously, he missed because he had no idea where the ball was going.

"Bud's getting it figured out. The first half of the season, 70 percent of his misses were from the thigh level on up, and (Tuesday) you saw him spike 3-4 fastballs in front of the plate. He's not missing up unless he wants to miss up. He's pelting down, down, down...

...His stuff dictates that he has a chance if he really truly puts the whole package, he could absolutely be a three, two or one hole starter on a first division club."
