Izzy has a new pitch...

 Jason Isringhausen is pulling out all the stops, which includes adding a new pitch to make the team.  Izzy is experimenting with a changeup and after receiving rave reviews from Terry Collins it sounds like he's going to keep the pitch.  I know I have a soft spot for Izzy but a 38 y/o with almost 300 saves, who is willing to add a pitch seems like the type of player you want in the pen. 

"I'll keep throwing it then, if he likes it" Isringhausen said. "All you have to do is show those guys (hitters) on video you have a changeup, so they have to keep it in the back of their mind. Will it be my bread and butter? Not right now, but it could be. I always told myself I could do anything with a baseball if I worked at it." source NY Times
