How many hits does a pitcher...
have to give up before you say he "scattered" them. I have a good friend who derides anybody else in his team's division.
Yesterday, he said an opposing pitcher "scattered 4 hits over 7 innings." I called him out on revealing his bias.
I think the term has derogatory connotation in that the pitcher wasn't that good or didn't have his best stuff.
It is often used when the best pitcher in a match-up loses a game the other pitcher scattered 7 hits but won anyway.
So, how many does it take?
