VIDEO: MLB pitchers, take note of Rob Johnson's pace

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

On Wednesday night, events conspired to force Cardinals catcher Rob Johnson to pitch to Dodgers reliever Paco Rodriguez (!). That in itself is notable enough, but watch on as Johnson crafts a four-pitch strikeout in a total of about, oh, 38 seconds or so ...

Working quickly, is what they call that.

Worth noting is that in 2013 the average major-league pitcher takes 22.6 seconds between offerings. Rob Johnson is galled by such indolence.

Hope you were taking notes, Josh Beckett.
