Let us also assume, I have heard Grady quote this number, that the break is worth 2 balls.

That is a good shot.

Lagging would probably get the award for most underpracticed, important shot.

You and Jimmy are both probably right. I do not see it like you guys. I suppose nobody is right, and nobody is wrong is the truth.
