To be enthralled with "missing bats" is to forget (or never know) the great phrase by Sandy Koufax:  "I became a good pitcher when I stopped trying to make them miss the ball and started trying to make them hit it." 

All of the best pitchers have figured this out.

@Michael BrownI don’t necessarily disagree with that, I just think we have other guys, with fewer options who can pitch to contact like Hughes AND miss bats.
